Alarms sound at Bostons Beth Israel hospital as an older woman suffers a heart attack - a woman with pervasive, end-stage cancer. She has been in a coma for days, and there is no chance that she will emerge from it - much less live for very long.MoreAlarms sound at Bostons Beth Israel hospital as an older woman suffers a heart attack - a woman with pervasive, end-stage cancer.

She has been in a coma for days, and there is no chance that she will emerge from it - much less live for very long. Still, the medical team flies into action, making heroic efforts to save her from cardiac arrest because the family refuses to sign a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order. Is the struggle to extend this comatose, terminal patients life a waste of effort for a hard-pressed hospital staff? Should the family have final say in this futile battle to extend her life?
