Minimizing the risks of brain injury from cardiac arrest

Undergoing cardiac arrest can be terrifying for Massachusetts patients. Persons in cardiac arrest need to receive immediate treatment to increase their chances of survival and minimize the possibility of severe long-term effects, such as brain injuries.

The extreme risks of central nervous system malignancies

A diagnosis of malignant tumors in the brain or spinal cord is a terrible situation for Massachusetts residents and their families. When doctors miss the warning signs of brain and spinal tumors or opt to delay treatment, patients face worsening health, steep medical bills and disease spread. Furthermore, patients also may miss the window of opportunity for cutting-edge cancer therapies.

Outcomes for increasing C-section rates

Massachusetts women rely on their doctors to determine when the time for a cesarean section has come during delivery. However, high C-section rates do not translate to better birth outcomes, and complications during the procedure may have long-term consequences for both mothers and infants.

Limits of viability: An ethical gray area

Despite the advancement of medical technology, research has shown that premature birth rates are increasing. Massachusetts parents of premature infants may face heartrending decisions in the hospital and long-term struggles to ensure the wellbeing of these children. The complications surrounding a preterm birth are only worsened by medical errors.
