AZULAY TAPIERO, A.. Terminal sedation: Ethic aspects. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2003, vol.20, n.12, pp.49-53. ISSN 0212-7199.

For better or for worse, bioethics is a discipline that, on occasion, presents more doubts and questions than solutions or answers for the variety of issues it implies. Sedation - as it concerns the terminally ill patient - is a clear example of one such issue. Sedation, used to diminish the intense suffering of those terminally ill patients who do not respond to conventional treatment, is a standard method by which the practice of palliative care presents often significant bioethical conflicts. I reconsider these ethical dilemmas that occur as a result of this decision.

Palabras clave : Terminal sedation; Euthanasia; Palliative Care; Bioethics.
