anti-anxiety medication is palliative care for corona-virus « on: April 16, 2020, 07:31:32 pm »
This could mean a COVID-19 patient is left with a difficult decision: Would you prefer palliative care or life-support? Palliative care for coronavirus typically involves an oxygen mask, morphine and anti-anxiety medication to ease breathing.
Life support, on the other hand, can include a feeding tube, dialysis, transfusions and mechanical ventilation, a grueling experience that requires heavy sedation.”
All options seems pretty bad. I wonder how one can say no to anti-anxiety medication (which I believe in benzos only)
