If you have ever been told you are going to die- Please see the PBS Special Front line special on November 23rd 2010. at 9Pm Eastern Time. Your Funeral Guy and many folks have experienced this in CCU/ICU.

How far would you go to sustain the life of someone you love, or your own? When the moment comes, and you’re confronted with the prospect of “pulling the plug,” do you know how you’ll respond?

In Facing Death, FRONTLINE gains extraordinary access to The Mount Sinai Medical Center, one of New York’s biggest hospitals, to take a closer measure of today’s complicated end-of-life decisions. In this intimate, groundbreaking film, doctors, patients and families speak with remarkable candor about the increasingly difficult choices people are making at the end of life: when to remove a breathing tube in the ICU; when to continue treatment for patients with aggressive blood cancers; when to perform a surgery; and when to call for hospice

How would you handle it if they disconnected you from Life Support. What would you say to your family?

The folks doing this video did the flawed Frontline  “the undertaking”. which portrayed traditional funeral arrangements without considering other options. At first glance this presentation does not appear to be flawed.
