Title : Dying people should be kept on life support. Do you agree?
" I don't care, we should keep on continuing this life support for mom! ", " We have to let it go, honey. We should not let her suffer anymore ", "But what if she wake up again? Don't you want to see her beautiful smile again? Please my big brother, let give her chance to live just a little longer". Maybe these are some experience which happens to other people or you yourself to be in this situation. It is quite a great dilemma when we are in the middle of two lines. Life or death. As medical students, we might face this situation in the future. In our opinion, we strongly disagree with the action of the sister who wants to longer the life of her mother because of many factors.
Dying people should not be kept on life support because it is
like we suffered them. Just you imagine, if someone is dying, you wouldn't let
them sit there and suffer, would you? We are like forcing unbreathable people
to breathe. Just think if you hurt so bad where you couldn't get up and
walk,and you are forced to get up and walk. Is it very difficult and suffered
right? So, we must let them go instead by keeping them on life support.
Although there are some people said there is a small probability of dying
people to getting health back, only small percent of people will get full and
good recovery to live. They might be recover but not in a good healthy. For
example, when someone is dying and be keeping on life support, suddenly
miracles happen and the dying person wake up, but the person is still in weak
condition. He or she must undergo many treatment to get full recovery and it
took a very long time. However, on getting the full recovery, there is also a
chances to get the disease or attack back. So, there is no point to keep the
dying people on life support.
In addition, keeping the dying
persons on life support can also cause them, super-majority of family and
friends false hope. Just imagine, if you are at the dying person position and
you were told you only have several months to live.What are your feelings at that moment? Off course,
you feel depressed right? As the effect, you will have negative minded
and become bad, worse, and worst since you only think by keeping you on
the life support you can live. You can’t think of any other solutions and you
will lose hope. You are on the bed with everyone is sitting beside you with sad
face. Is it what you want at the end of your life? No happiness, no enjoyment,
and your life is full of darkness and sorrow. NO right? So, why don’t we let
them to live in peace with positive minded that they will
live happily ever after. They can fulfill their precious times with family,
relatives, friends and the beloved ones.We should support these special
persons and inspires them.By this way, they will have strength
to face all the challenges and obstacles in their life although they
know the death is coming.I strongly believe, by this way, the dying
persons can heal more easily or at least if they die, they will not regret
because they have made preparation for it. They will die in happiness and all
sweet memories with beloved ones. In short, keeping the dying person on the
life support is not always the best choice.
Moreover, the reason why we do not agree on keeping dying people's life
by life support machine because of high cost needed for the treatment
during her or his dying.The cost involving her food,medicine and even
petrol used for shuttling from home to hospital is counted.On top of
that,family members or people who closely related with patient need to
earn more money in order to pay hospital bill.Plus,nowadays most special
treatment required much money.People who have more money could get
first class ward whereas people with no money would get ward which is
less comfortable.As a family member,of course we want the best for our
family,right ?So,I would like you to decide which is truly the 'best'
for the patients.It also will need much money if we kept the dying
people longer.The longer we keep their life by life support machine,the
higher the cost needed.In conclusion,we oppose dying people's life is
support by life machine as it cost much money.
As a conclusion we disagree that
life support machine should be given to dying people.We thinks,it is best
for them to die rather than suffering their disease such as
cancer, brain tumor and HIV. We knew that maybe some of the reader would
not agree with our statement,but let us think this quote together 'You
only live once,but if you do it right,once is enough'
