1. Introduction Whether from a tragic accident, or a long and protracted illness, there can come a point where health care practitioners, spouses, parents or other family members must decide whether potentially life-sustaining treatment should be withheld or withdrawn from a patient no longer competent or capable to consent. Often a consensus is reached based on knowledge of the wishes of the patient through an advanced directive or some other previous expression of their wishes. Other times, a consensus is reached through recognition that further treatment is of no benefit to the patient. All involved agree it is in best interests of the patient to withhold or withdraw life-sustaining treatment.
