Narrative Matters: A Doctor Faces Tough Decisions On Infant Resuscitation

In the October Health Affairs Narrative Matters essay, a neonatologist must decide whether to revive a premature baby on the borderline of viability. Gautham Suresh’s article is freely available to all readers, or you can subscribe to iTunes and listen to him read it. Next week on Health Affairs Blog, another neonatologist will react to Dr. Suresh’s thoughts and describe her own experiences grappling with the difficult decisions that too often accompany the treatment of very premature babies.
