Will People Wake from Vegetative State? New Test Could Tell

中文摘要

根據丹麥研究,醫師可利用正子電腦斷層造影將大腦狀態區分「微意識狀態」及「植物人狀態」,藉此判斷哪些腦傷病人是較可能復原的。此項技術亦可預測個人能從意識障礙中恢復的機率,其準確度高達89%。針對罹患嚴重傷病,經過醫師診斷後,認為該病人已不可治癒,且有醫學上的證據,近期之內病程進行至死亡已經是不可避免的末期病人,為了尊重其的醫療意願及保障末期病人的權益,臺灣訂有安寧緩和醫療條例。

英文摘要

According to a new study, the positron emission tomography (PET) scan, may be able to differentiate between minimally conscious brains and those in a vegetative state. This technology could help doctors to estimate the chance of brain trauma patient recovery. The PET scan data could correctly distinguish between minimal consciousness and severe unresponsive wakefulness with 89% accuracy. In Taiwan, the Hospice Palliative Care Act is specifically stipulated to respect terminal illness patients’ will on the medical treatment, and protect their right.
