Legal Regulation Of Health Personnel Symposium: Introduction Jan 1967

Legal Regulation Of Health Personnel Symposium: Introduction

Washington University Law Review

The following three Articles are devoted to an examination of the legal framework of the health services, and its effect upon the adequacy and flexibility of health care delivery systems to meet present and projected needs and demands. If any central focus can be predicated of the whole study, it is this: to what extent does the current legal framework of health care hinder or encourage those innovations which must come to pass if medicine is to keep up with modern needs? More particularly, to what extent does the legal scheme inhibit flexibility in the creation and use of effective ...

Electroencephalography (Eeg) In Head Injuries, Andre A. Weil Jan 1962

Electroencephalography (Eeg) In Head Injuries, Andre A. Weil

Cleveland State Law Review

Clinical electroencephalography has gained remarkably in popularity during the past twenty years. Correspondingly we find it with more frequency in medico-legal problems, particularly the ones pertaining to head injuries.


Medico-Legal Aspects Of The Electroencephalogram, Walter P. Mahle Jan 1962

Medico-Legal Aspects Of The Electroencephalogram, Walter P. Mahle

Cleveland State Law Review

Brain injuries are difficult to prove and the lawyer must use all demonstrative evidence available to him to make the jury aware of the injury to his client. The electroencephalogram, though it has only been used as a diagnostic tool and as demonstrative evidence for the last fifteen to twenty years, is becoming more important in this field. It is becoming a more exact science and, it is believed, will be used more widely in the future. There does not appear to be any great problem of admissibility where they are properly identified, performed by competent technicians, using adequate equipment ...

The seriousness of damage to the head and resultant impairment of the body functions has been given proper cognizance as evidenced by substantial jury awards. Injury to the brain, however, may not only result in immediate damage to the body function but may result in damage that will be experienced at a remote future time.


Alcoholism As A Medicolegal Problem, John M. Macdonald Jan 1962

Alcoholism As A Medicolegal Problem, John M. Macdonald

Cleveland State Law Review

Medico-legal aspects of alcoholism include determination ofcriminal responsibility, medical evaluation of drunken drivers, interpretation of chemical tests of intoxication and the involuntary commitment of alcoholics to mental hospitals. The policymaking functions of attorneys, both in public positions such as membership in the legislature, and in private practice demand knowledge of the origins, course and social consequences of the disease.


Physiology Of The Heart, Frederick F. Waugh Jan 1962

Physiology Of The Heart, Frederick F. Waugh

Cleveland State Law Review

The heart has been subject of much literature, ranging from rudimentary studies found in elementary biology texts, to obtuse technical theses of specific aspects of the many functions and disorders of this organ. Due to the magnitude of the subject, this article will be restricted to a very perfunctory treatment of the subject, which concerns the function of the heart and the various disorders affecting it.

Ownership Of X-Rays, Ronald J. Harpst Jan 1962

Ownership Of X-Rays, Ronald J. Harpst

Cleveland State Law Review

The question as to who has property rights in x-ray films has been the subject of controversy between physician, attorney, patient and hospital. Although there have been few cases dealing specifically with this problem, the issue often has been raised privately among physicians and in attorney-physician debates. The object of this article is to acquaint the attorney and physician with the main approaches to the problem of ownership of x-rays, and to supplement the various approaches with leading cases.

Physiology Of Ethyl Alcohol, Lewis H. Bronson

Civil Rights Of The Mentally Ill In Ohio, Robert L. Tuma Jan 1962

Civil Rights Of The Mentally Ill In Ohio, Robert L. Tuma

Cleveland State Law Review

Mental illness is principally a medical problem, but there are basic legal considerations to be observed, and these considerations should not be impatiently brushed aside as "mere technicalities" of legal procedure. On the other hand, legal provisions relating to hospitalization of mental patients should be viewed by legislators, lawyers, and judicial officials as mechanism for prompt and effective care and treatment, for safeguarding civil rights, and for protecting the community. All these aspects are important and undue concern for one aspect should not work to the detriment of the others. Moreover, in actual practice, no legal provision should defeat the ...

Amnesia After Brain Injury, Ewing H. Crawfis Jan 1962

Amnesia After Brain Injury, Ewing H. Crawfis

Cleveland State Law Review

In discussing amnesia, it is first important to point out that it occurs as but one of a number of symptoms of brain injury. While we choose to single it out, we should keep in mind that it exists contemporaneously with, and in relation to, other symptoms.
