Abstracts
The paper aims to present moral-bio-ethical, medical and legal dilemmas of biomedical progress which has with its amazing technological development prompted numerous concerns about the capabilities of un/limited prolongation of the final stage of human life.
The progress in medical care for terminal patients has made it possible to keep them alive for a relatively long time, but all the more apparent is the absurdity of such interventions, especially in situations marked by painful and unbearable agony of prolonged process dying and gradual cancellation of all life functions of a dying person, whose life is gradually fading away, but with interventions of aggressive-intensive therapeutic persistence they are forced to a physiological life-support.
For these reasons, the aim of this paper is to present the bioethical guidelines and criteria for dysthanasia procedures that would orient the clinical intervention by applying the principles of "medical futility" from a professional medical angle; from a legal perspective and from the standpoint of Christian morality, in order for their integration to resonate professionally and humanely in the attempts of humanizing the final moments of life.
