"Choosing Wisely: using past medical decisions in allocating scarce ECMO resources"

This talk will examine the ethical complexities of distributing limited ECMO resources to a growing population of eligible patients across the age spectrum and varying prognosis, describe the ramifications of influenza vaccine refusal among otherwise healthy adults, and explore the moral permissibility of allocating scarce ECMO resources based on previous medical decision-making, such as declining the seasonal influenza vaccine.
