To avoid this, identify all works consulted and use footnotes or endnotes when paraphrasing another person’s views. Essay Question Comment on the following case as if you were an ethics consultant required to give a recommendation to the attending physician who has asked for your help. Dave’s Case: Part 1 Dave falls from the roof one day while cleaning gutters at his home. He is brought by ambulance to the University of Washington Medical Center, where he is found to have high cervical spinal cord injury and quadriplegia. He is ventilator dependent and has no feeling below the top of the head. A month after the accident, Dave begins to request that the ventilator be withdrawn and that he be allowed to die. The attending physician is not entirely comfortable with this request and asks for an ethics consultation. (a) Use the four box method of case analysis to organize the information contained in Dave’s Case, Part 1 and to display the ethically relevant features. (b) Appeal to ethical principles to present the strongest argument you can think of in support of meeting the patient’s request for ventilator withdrawal in Dave’s Case, Part 1.

    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.

    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.
