Who says you're dead?

medical & ethical dilemmas for the curious & concerned
Jacob M Appel MD
Book - 2019

Drawing upon the author<U+2019>s two decades teaching medical ethics, as well as his work as a practicing psychiatrist, this profound and addictive little book offers up challenging ethical dilemmas and asks readers, What would you do? A daughter gets tested to see if she<U+2019>s a match to donate a kidney to her father. The test reveals that she is not the man<U+2019>s biological daughter. Should the doctor tell the father? Or the daughter? A deaf couple prefers a deaf baby. Should they be allowed to use medical technology to ensure they have a child who can<U+2019>t hear? Who should get custody of an embryo created through IVF when a couple divorces? Or, when you or a loved one is on life support, Who says you<U+2019>re dead? In short, engaging scenarios, Dr. Appel takes on hot-button issues that many of us will confront: genetic screening, sexuality, privacy, doctor-patient confidentiality. He unpacks each hypothetical with a brief reflection drawing from science, philosophy, and history, explaining how others have approached these controversies in real-world cases. Who Says You<U+2019>re Dead? is designed to defy easy answers and to stimulate thought and even debate among professionals and armchair ethicists alike.
