(3) MBEC News item on Elderly and Life Saving in USA

Life-saving and the elderly American

Life-sustaining treatments, their effects on the patient and family, and the
medical, ethical and legal considerations involving the use or non-use of such
treatments has been analysed in 'Final report: life-sustaining technologies and
the elderly' (PB87-222527), from the US Government's National Technical Infor-
mation Service.
In addition to the final report are the working papers which deal with five
particular life-sustaining technologies and their use with elderly people, al-
though much of the information is applicable to people of all ages: 'Volume 1
Working papers: The technologies, Part 1' (PB88-150164); 'Volume 2 Working pa-
pers: The technologies, Part 2' (PB88-150156); 'Volume 3 Working papers: Legal
and ethical issues, manpower and training, and classification systems for deci-
sion making' (PB88-106214); 'Volume 4 Working papers: Use of life-sustaining
technologies in other countries' (PB87-234571) and finally 'Philoaophical, le-
gal, and social aspects of surrogate decisionmaking for elderly individuals'
This report and the working papers were prepared for the Senate Special
Committee on Aging, which requested a 'thorough review of the ethical dilemma's
concerning life-and-death decisions that are faced by health-care practitioners,
elderly patients themselves, and concerned family members', issues covered in-
clude 'financial access' to life-sustaining technologies and the 'right to
