*Brief introduction to Atul Gawande's Being Mortal*
In the modern era, medicine has prevailed spectacularly. It has made frightening and dangerous thins (like injury, disease, or birth) in something manageable. However, when it comes to aging and death, which are inseparable from human’s life, it seems that most of the times medicine goes the opposite way of the interest of the human spirit.
Patients are tied to beds or wheelchairs in nursing homes overly preoccupied with safety. Dying patients are isolated and attached to abundant vital sign monitoring devices even after the goals of cure have long become unlikely. Devastating procedures are performed by doctors so obsessed in extending the patients lives that in fact they are extending the patients’ suffering.
Being a practicing surgeon and also a professor, Atul Gawande really comprehends what the limitations in his profession are and he thoroughly addresses them in Being Mortal. He also offers his perspective that the real desire of the patients and families is to have the best quality of life possible.
