Medical paper predicts Schiavo autopsy irrelevant

From The North Country Gazette:

MedPage Today, a medical news service for physicians, has reported that neurologists say the autopsy performed on Terri Schiavo will not definitively confirm a diagnosis of persistent vegetative state

The physician reviewed, teaching brief published by MedPage Today, written by Peggy Peck, Senior Editor, and reviewed by Zalman S. Agus, MD; Emeritus Professor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine reports that Michael De Georgia, MD, head of the neurology/neurosurgery intensive care unit at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation says that “Persistent vegetative state or minimally conscious state is a clinical diagnosis. It cannot be confirmed by autopsy”.

I predict Felos Death Cult will still claim that the autopsy, in some way, proves their contentions. Everyone who visited Terri for more than a little bit, except Felos fellow cult members, confirm that she was aware and would respond to people.

A baby's life support battle continues but time is running out for baby Knya. The five-month-old is on life support at Memorial Hermann Hospital. The deadline to stop treatment is Sunday.
Could the sad case Knya Dismuke be entering a new phase? Her parents are certainly hoping so. The child is currently slated to be removed from medical treatment at Memorial Hermann Hospital next Monday.

Knya was diagnosed with leukemia in December. She underwent treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center, but was later returned to Hermann Hospital, about three months later.
A committee at Hermann Hospital has decided to discontinue medical care. With chemotherapy, doctors say the child has about a 5% chance of survival. Without it, she has about two weeks to live.

5% is thousands of times better than any chance of recovery Terri Schiavo had. Her brain was, uh, liquid after all.

But republicans couldn't give one single damn about poor, black babies, could they?

In fact that baby is denied treatment because of George Bush's KILL POOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T PAY THEIR BILLS law.
