    Heart patients to be given placebo.

    Heart patients to be given placebo by paramedics in controversial trial

    Patients whose hearts stop will be given a placebo instead of adrenalin by paramedics during attempts to save their lives in a study branded 'ethically questionable'

    Read more on this shocking revelation at The Telgraph HERE




    As the relatives of these heart-attack patients will not know if their loved-one has had life-saving adrenalin or the placebo, I wonder, if the patient dies as a result of this daft experiment we will be told of this.

    Anybody ?

    That's a nasty one Paps.

    In fact I cannot see them getting away with it at all as if they do, that would mean that some heart-attack victims would be condemned to die instead of receiving the medicine they need to stay alive.

    Paramedics should not have that responsibility shoved onto their shoulders.

    Something tells me that the paramedics will refuse to take part in this trial.

    I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    Even although these stupid trials will be what is called "double blind" trials, ( this means that neither the paramedic nor the patient will know if they are giving and receiving the placebo or the heart-starting adrenaline ), it could still be seen as an act of murder if anyone dies as a result of this trial.

    I was wondering if you could maybe find out more about this trial Papa, and let us know what is happening ?

    I will certainly TRY to find out more if I can.

    One thing is certain, this thing is just NOT ON. Suspect
