Defense Verdict

Synopsis:

A 47-year-old woman was brought to the emergency room in severe respiratory distress. After unsuccessful efforts to intubate her, she suffered cardiac arrest, with resulting brain damage, leaving her in a permanent vegetative state.

Defense contended that fulminant pulmonary edema would have resulted in arrest even with successful intubation.
