"Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but taking the pain killer.."

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

He didn’t really say that, did he? I must say I was appalled when a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-dQfb8WQvo”watching this ABC news clip of Obama /amaking this ludicrous statement to the daughter of a now 105-year-old woman who needed a pacemaker (she needed the surgery at 99). The daughter in question, Jane Sturm, was asking the President if he thought medical criteria such as age should be used or should quality of life and joy be important in making the decision to provide care. From his answer, which basically boils down to “Mom can take a pain pill,” Obama shows himself not only to have no understanding of medicine, life, or the science of improving people’s lives, but span style=”font-style:italic;”no empathy/span for a href=”http://drhelen.blogspot.com/2005/10/more-than-you-wanted-to-know-about-my.html”those of us who have life threatening illnesses/a that require immediate medical intervention.br /br /Some heart arrhythmias are deadly, and a doctor telling a patient to take a pain killer to treat V-tach or V-fib should be guilty of malpractice. For example, the American Heart Association a href=”http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=560″states:/abr /br /blockquoteThe term “arrhythmia” refers to any change from the normal sequence of electrical impulses. The electrical impulses may happen too fast, too slowly, or erratically – causing the heart to beat too fast, too slowly, or erratically.br /br /When the heart doesn’t beat properly, it can’t pump blood effectively. When the heart doesn’t pump blood effectively, the lungs, brain and all other organs can’t work properly and may shut down or be damaged./blockquotebr /br /Heart arrhythmias can be absolutely terrifying leading to panic attacks and/or fatigue so crippling that one cannot get off the couch. A pain killer is not going to help. But maybe that’s the idea. Obama is so determined to get his health care plan passed–no matter what the consequences– that he doesn’t care how or if people suffer, especially older people. br /br /Is Obama heartless, mean or just plain ignorant? His response to Jane Sturm leaves me wondering which.
