    One thought on “The Lazarus Case: Life-and-Death Issues in Neonatal Intensive Care”

    1. Excellent read for anyone interested in medical ethics. I think it's written so non-professionals could engage easily in the material. Definately addresses important questions we in the neonatal field should be pondering.

    2. One ethicist tale of a specific case viewed in light of his experiences. Not as helpful for understanding the ethics or greater issues of preemiesSocial Health Care Ethics

    3. Not a light read but very intriguing and thought provoking. It didn't focus on neo-natal intensive care as much as I was expecting, but I really enjoyed this book.
