A Conversation about How to Navigate Ethical Dilemmas with Intensivist Dr. Mark Tonelli

On today’s episode I chat with Dr. Mark Tonelli, MD, MA an Intensivist and Pulmonologist at the University of Washington Medical Center. He also is a member of their Ethics Consultation Service. I brought him on the show to discuss how he approaches ethical dilemmas in critical care medicine. The one thing that acts as a guiding light to the consultations is this desire to always want to do the right thing for the patient.

This episode is super enlightening as well as very needed. Dr. Tonelli dives into this notion of just because we can do something as medical providers, doesn’t mean we should. It gets really juicy, so please tune in!

Thank you so much for being on the show, Mark. I am so appreciative and I know our listeners will be, too.

Stay Safe and Stay Sane,
