Chris Stanton SPA #5, Section 205 After being involved in a tragic accident, of which he father did not survive, Dax Cowart was so severely burned that he ultimately lost both of eyes, hands, and 65% of his skin. Despite Cowart’s incessant pleads to “let me die,” doctors persisted with excruciating treatments that ultimately saved his life. Throughout this treatment program, Cowart was did not receive adequate painkillers, was denied legal means to cease treatment, and attempted suicide on several occasions. A first order question deals with finding a resolution to the dilemma, which in this case would be whether to follow the patient’s wishes and cease his treatment or to continue with the current course of action in an effort to advance his recovery. Cowart would advocate abandoning the current treatment due to his excruciating pain as well as the severely limited quality of life to follow. On the other hand, Cowart’s doctors would justify continuing treatment in hopes of giving him the best quality of life possible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
