Devices and End Stage

Devices and end stage heart failure: This search combines heart failure device terms (e.g. implantable defibrillators) with the CareSearch palliative filter, rather than the heart failure filter. This combination is more effective in retrieving articles on device-related ethical, legal and psychosocial issues at the end of life. An example is patient-professional communication on device deactivation.
