  1. Apparently, the question suggests a situation in which the relative himself is in a coma or something like that? Otherwise, the decision on measures is a decision ONLY of the patient himself, and he has no right to burden anyone else with this decision. And no one else has the right to make this decision for him.

    Well, if you can't decide for yourself, then your choice depends entirely on your own assessment of the degree of competence of the doctor and your trust in him. You should have no doubts about either of them. And doubts as a result of medical intervention are natural and they will always be, including the doctor himself – this is the risk.

    So, although psychologists are not doctors, but in medical situations I perceive doctors as colleagues, and I always follow the phrase of the hero Crowe from the movie “Proof of Life”. If you remember the film, the hero, being himself a specialist in the search for the abducted, answered the question ” What if your child?…”, answered “I would find a specialist whom I trust, and did everything as he says”.

  2. And if he did not take the risk, how long would a person live, and would he live at all?�

    I believe that first of all, in medicine, the risk should be justified,and secondly, the doctor most likely did everything in his power.

  3. Doctors are not gods, they are not omnipotent, and if a person would have died anyway, what difference does it make? But there was a chance in the second option, so it was good that he tried.
