Ethical Issue: new technologies and the modern findings in the medical field

Abstract It is very evident and clear that the new technologies and the modern findings in the medical field need people to reflect on some ethical queries. The reason is that these fresh discoveries can be a barrier to the form bioethical choices were actually made. The article concentrates on the findings that are made by Dr. Adrian Owen. Owen has actually found that most patients in the vegetative states which is the brain damage disorder shows signs of consciousness when they are skimmed using useful magnetic reverberation imaging. Whereas these affected people do not reveal any external or interactive signs of awareness, they show brain activity similar to healthy volunteers when they are asked to imagine certain tasks for instance playing lawn tennis. Additionally, Dr. Owen has found that these individuals can respond to yes/no questions by prompting them to imagine one task for “yes” and another task for “no.” These findings radically question the way we think about consciousness and patients in vegetative states. Occasionally, families choose to withdraw life-sustaining interventions for patients who are permanently in vegetative states. Recently, some people have argued that such decisions should not be made before these patients undergo Owen’s fMRI technique.
