Abstract

A pregnant patient with irreversible anoxic brain damage was maintained by life-support measures from 14 weeks' gestation until delivery of a healthy male infant at 34 weeks. Because two patients (the mother and the fetus), as well as the surviving family members, will be affected by decisions about life support, each case should be assessed individually.
