Description:

This short article is written “from the inside”: from the perspective of someone who has spent weeks in an intensive care unit (ICU) with acute respiratory distress syndrome, severe sepsis, and multiple organ failure. My life was saved by highly skilled and compassionate physicians and nurses. I am also an academic philosopher and I was struck by how certain assumptions made by these physicians and nurses might be improved. I offer the following suggestions about patient autonomy and about the transition out of the ICU against a background of profound gratitude and respect for those who work in critical care.
