    Operation of a triage committee for advanced life support during the COVID-19 pandemic.Benjamín Herreros, Rafael Ruiz de Luna, Natalia de la Calle, Diego Gayoso, Paula Martínez, Karmele Olaciregui Dague & Gregorio Palacios - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-8.
    BackgroundDuring the first weeks of March 2020 in Spain, the cases of severe respiratory failure progressively increased, generating an imbalance between the clinical needs for advanced life support measures and the effective availability of ALS resources. To address this problem, the creation of triage committees was proposed, whose main function is to select the best candidates to receive ALS. The main objective of our study is to describe the clinical characteristics of the patients evaluated by the TC of the Alcorcón (...)

  2. Navigating Ethical Challenges of Conducting Randomized Clinical Trials on COVID-19.Dan Kabonge Kaye - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-11.
    BackgroundThe contemporary frameworks for clinical research require informed consent for research participation that includes disclosure of material information, comprehension of disclosed information and voluntary consent to research participation. There is thus an urgent need to test, and an ethical imperative, to test, modify or refine medications or healthcare plans that could reduce patient morbidity, lower healthcare costs or strengthen healthcare systems.MethodsConceptual review.DiscussionAlthough some allocation principles seem better than others, no single moral principle allocates interventions justly, necessitating combining the moral principles (...)

    Changing Self-Concept in the Time of COVID-19: A Close Look at Physician Reflections on Social Media.Lalit Kumar Radha Krishna, Stephen Mason, Crystal Lim, Kiley Wei Jen Loh, Wei Sean Yong, Jin Wei Kwek, Yoke Lim Soong, Yun Ting Ong, Ruth Si Man Wong, Javier Rui Ming Tan, Elijah Gin Lim, Caleb Wei Hao Ng, Keith Zi Yuan Chua, Elaine Quah, Chong Yao Ho & Min Chiam - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-11.
    BackgroundThe COVID-19 pandemic has changed the healthcare landscape drastically. Stricken by sharp surges in morbidity and mortality with resource and manpower shortages confounding their efforts, the medical community has witnessed high rates of burnout and post-traumatic stress amongst themselves. Whilst the prevailing literature has offered glimpses into their professional war, no review thus far has collated the deeply personal reflections of physicians and ascertained how their self-concept, self-esteem and perceived self-worth has altered during this crisis. Without adequate intervention, this may (...)

    Alzheimer’s Disease: History, Ethics and Medical Humanities in the Context of Assisted Suicide. [REVIEW]Thomas Horst Loew, Joachim Demling & Birgit Braun - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-7.
    IntroductionDementia diseases, especially Alzheimer’s disease, are of considerable importance in terms of social policy and health economics. Moreover, against the background of the current Karlsruhe judgement on the legalisation of assisted suicide, there are also questions to be asked about medical humanities in AD.MethodologyRelevant literature on complementary forms of therapy and prognosis was included and discussed.ResultsCreative sociotherapeutic approaches and validating psychotherapeutic approaches show promise for suitability and efficiency in the treatment of dementia, but in some cases still need to be (...)

  5. Entropy as the Main Justification for Research in Medical Ethics.Marie-France Mamzer, Christophe Tresallet, Louis Pantel & Alban Zarzavadjian Le Bian - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-2.
    Ethics is an unconventional field of research for a surgeon, as ethics in surgery owns several specificities and surgery is considered an aggressive specialty. Therefore, the interest of research in medical ethics is sometimes unclear.In this short essay, we discussed the interest of research in medical ethics using a comparison to thermodynamics and mainly, entropy. During the transformation of a figure from one state to another, some energy is released or absorbed; yet, a part of this energy is wasted because (...)

  6. Media portrayal of ethical and social issues in brain organoid research.Abigail Presley, Leigh Ann Samsa & Veljko Dubljević - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-14.
    BackgroundHuman brain organoids are a valuable research tool for studying brain development, physiology, and pathology. Yet, a host of potential ethical concerns are inherent in their creation. There is a growing group of bioethicists who acknowledge the moral imperative to develop brain organoid technologies and call for caution in this research. Although a relatively new technology, brain organoids and their uses are already being discussed in media literature. Media literature informs the public and policymakers but has the potential for utopian (...)

    The “One Health” approach in the face of Covid-19: how radical should it be?Vittorio A. Sironi, Silvia Inglese & Andrea Lavazza - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-10.
    BackgroundThe 2020-2021 coronavirus pandemic is just the latest epidemic event that requires us to rethink and change our understanding of health. Health should no longer be conceived only in relation to human beings, but in unitary terms, as a dimension that connects humans, animals, plants, and the environment. In general, alterations occurring in this articulated chain of life trigger a domino effect.MethodologyIn this paper, we review the One Health paradigm in the light of the Covid-19 pandemic and distinguish two approaches (...)

    Clusters, Lines and Webs—so Does My Patient Have Psychosis? Reflections on the Use of Psychiatric Conceptual Frameworks From a Clinical Vantage Point. [REVIEW]Douglas Turkington, Stuart Watson, Reece William Hill & Tibor Zoltan Kovacs - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-8.
    Mental health professionals working in hospitals or community clinics inevitably face the realisation that we possess imperfect conceptual means to understand mental disorders. In this paper the authors bring together ideas from the fields of Philosophy, Psychiatry, Cognitive Psychology and Linguistics to reflect on the ways we represent phenomena of high practical importance that we often take for granted, but are nevertheless difficult to define in ontological terms. The paper follows through the development of the concept of psychosis over the (...)

  9. Asclepion of Epidaurus: The Application of a Historical Perspective in Medical Education.Konstantina G. Yiannopoulou, Christos Papageorgiou, Vassilis Lambrinoudakis, Gerasimos Konstantinou & Charalabos Papageorgiou - 2022 - Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine 17 (1):1-9.
    BackgroundThe Asclepion of Epidaurus is one of the first healing environments in the world. Descendants of Asclepius, specifically medical students, have been singularly deprived of any information concerning this legacy. This article illuminates the role of Asclepion of Epidaurus and examines the view of medical students upon the subject and the possible benefits of this knowledge in their medical education.MethodsThe participants were 105 senior-year students from the Athens Medical School, who attended a multi-media assisted lecture related to the structure and (...)
