Resuscitation of the preterm infant against parental wishes.

PMID:  15846009     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Over the past 40 years, the norms on who is to make treatment decisions for newborns, and on what standards, have been significantly altered and revised. Today the standard for treatment of newborns is the "best interest" of the child. A recent ruling of the Texas Supreme Court authorizing a doctor to resuscitate a potentially viable very premature newborn over the parents' objection is a challenge to that standard.
