As nuclear technician Hisashi Ouchi helped a colleague to pour litres of uranium into a huge metal vat,

You should never do that.

After just seven days, he is reported to have screamed: "I can't take it any more! I am not a guinea pig!"

He's right, you know.

Doctors practice medicine and they were given something to play with that they've never seen before.  So they kept him alive for 83 days for no reason but because they can.  It wasn't about their oath, because doing what was best for the patient would have been a swift, drug induced overdose to reduce as much of the pain as possible.

Yep.  He should've been given morphine for his pain, then more morphine if he was still in pain, and then more morphine if it looked like he was in pain...

I've read about this person in the past and have seen images of the body. I don't know if they were real or fake but dear lord the damage that had been done was gruesome....to keep someone alive in that condition was heinous.

Looks like the family helped.

"On the 59th day, his heart stopped three times in 49 minutes, but on his family's request he was resuscitated each time he 'died', damaging his brain and kidneys further.

His loved ones must have been desperate for the doctors' medical interventions and experimental remedies to save poor Ouchi's life and for him to be returned to them - no matter the state he was in."

Doctor assisted suicide typically isn't legal almost everywhere, and doctors aren't legally allowed to decide to let you die, therefore when faced with someone that isn't dead yet, they have to do everything they can, even for hopeless situations.

There is also this -
'on his family's request he was resuscitated each time'

So lets not pretend the doctors were being evil for evils sake.

Also, the hypocratic oath is not something that is binding, it's basically Googles 'Do no Evil.'

You're not entirely wrong, but one of the effects of such a cute radiation poisoning is that your circulatory system literally melts down on you and those medications aren't able to be transported to the parts of the body they need to affect. You're basically just injecting the medication into a part of the body and it sits there doing nothing. Unfortunately the only thing that still works is the nervous system and all of the pain that it transmits.

It is an awful way to go and should have never been allowed to happen.

More than two decades ago, my granddad was drawing his last breaths in a country where people had barely dared starting to think about euthanasia. When his family asked the doctor to "ease the pain a bit more" the physician immediately understood what was meant, swiftly nodded, and started administering extra doses of Haldol and whatnot. Bye bye legal. And it was a correct decision too.

If this were, say, a cancer patient in the US today, and the condition was terminal, and further therapy considered futile, we would listen to the patient's wishes and "allow natural death" ("do not resusitate) while providing medication and other therapy as needed to ease suffering, even if the doses of pain meds required to achieve pain control were enough to affect breathing.  The family and the doctors would not be allowed to override the patient's wishes.  "Allow natural death" is NOT the same as euthanasia.  Withdrawal of care is another management option that goes a step beyond DNR and often when this decision is made, the patient is no longer to speak for him/herself.  This patient seems to have clearly stated his wishes.

The differences between this and any other terminal patient are 1.  this was a very young patient who was previously perfectly healthy--it's tough for the family to accept the sudden change in their situation.  2.  this was a few decades ago, so ethics may have evolved a bit since then.  3.  different culture-- not sure what the current approach is in Japan these days but it's probably not very different from US culture.

It sounds as if they had carried the full court press support for a long time and were unwilling to look at the whole picture.  Lethal dose of radiation is pretty clearly lethal and there is not much debate about the accuracy of that term.

Yes you can, and my mother did.
She was having a bad day. She had COPD so bad she was on oxygen 24/7. So shes is cognizant, I ask her if she wants me to drive her to the emergency room. No. So 911 it is, and she is answering questions for the EMTs, very alert. After arriving at the hospital she made it known, DNR. She had a heart attack. Her heart came back on, on its its own. But the damage was done. She was given morphine, and after 6 days in hospice, she died. To this day I know that because of her DNR, she was morphine'd to death, my Father also.

Ethics have evolved? What the eff does that even mean?

We continue to permit the psychopaths to lead us. Draw your lines on the political spectrum all you want and there will be plenty of psychopaths right in line ready to take up the cause.

I've spent decades researching history around the globe and it's always the same story. Push the system to the edge and wait for it to collapse with psychos in charge. Usually climate change prompts the end but but it's always the same story.

I think it makes people feel good knowing that they aren't responsible for the "bad" people making decisions that would cripple them.

But I'm pretty sure we need to get back to tearing down statues of the evil people in our history. There is still a lot of work because this country was stolen by slavers that stole them from other slavers that stole from other slavers. It goes back pretty far so let get back to work so we can finally correct all the wrong as far back as is currently acceptable and will be subject to change at some time or any time to come.

Why did we condemn isis destroying statues of slavers by the way? :)
