Description - Allocating Scarce Medical Resources by H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr.

Roman Catholic moral theology is the point of departure for this multifaceted exploration of the challenge of allocating scarce medical resources. The volume begins its exploration of discerning moral limits to modern high-technology medicine with a consensus statement born of the conversations among its contributors. The 17 essays use the example of critical care, because it offers one of the few areas in medicine where there are good clinical predictive measures regarding the likelihood of survival. As a result, the health care industry can with increasing accuracy predict the probability of saving lives - and at what cost. There are five essays from Jewish, Orthodox Christian and Protestant perspectives.
