Abstract

The age does not seem a determining element. It cannot solve the question which is to know if the admission in reanimation is relevant or not for the patient proposed. More than the admission or not of a possibly old subject in reanimation, the problem lies in the resolution with accuracy of the acute dilemma which is the decision-making to admit or refuse a patient whatever it is for the benefit of the person.
