Numerous patient disorders are now routinely diagnosed using a wide range of highly sophisticated imaging devices, and the lives of many patients are being extended through significant improvements in resuscitative and supportive devices such as respirators, pacemakers, and artificial kidneys. These technological advances, however, have not been entirely benign. They have had significant moral consequences. Provided with the ability to develop cardiovascular assist devices, perform organ transplants, and maintain the breathing and heartbeat of terminally ill patients, society has been forced to reexamine the meaning of such terms as death, quality of life, heroic efforts, and acts of mercy, and consider such moral issues as the right of patients to refuse treatment (living wills) and to participate in experiments (informed consent).
