    that was an excellent article, aimeee.
    i had to administer palliative sedation once.
    i always wondered how they knew this pt's death was imminent.
    there had been so much screaming, writhing and chaotic turmoil that it was challenging to note any changes in condition.
    but he died within hrs afterwards.
    thank you God.
