New Application of an Old Technology: Coma Patient' s Brain "Jump-Started" Using Ultrasound

中文摘要

加州大學洛杉磯分校醫療團隊使用超音波脈動「重啟」人腦,促使一位25歲男性病患脫離昏迷狀態,這個消息對於昏迷病患的治療將是一大進展。另一方面,對於病人權益的保障也有所進步,由於越來越多人對於不可逆轉之昏迷狀況、永久植物人狀態,希望能透過預立醫療決定,而讓生命善終,為推行此制度,臺灣訂有病人自主權利法,將於2019年施行。

英文摘要

Doctors at the University of California-Los Angeles “jumpstarted” a 25-year-old coma patient’s brain, spurring a dramatic recovery. This is the first time that ultrasound has been used in such a way. However, it is possible that the stimulation procedure was carried out as the man began to spontaneously improve. This is not unknown in coma patients and would make the results nothing more than a coincidence. Researchers at UCLA plan to carry out further trials. The Legislative Yuan in Taiwan has passed the “Patient’s Self-determination Right Act” in 2016. The legislative provide patient’s right to refuse or to request the removal life-sustaining treatment under certain conditions.
