Cas clinique et éthique De la complexité d'une demande de sédation

Abstract : A 59-year-old male, end-stage adenocarcinoma with metastases, who is essentially complaining of "intolerable" fatigue, makes a request for sedation that involves hiring the palliative care team. But this demand, though reiterated in the oncology department, will evolve over time. Observation allows us to illustrate the concepts of capability, existential suffering, refractory symptoms and autonomy. It also shows the listening climate necessary to discern the true demands of people at the end of life and their adaptation to the ultimate events they face.
