A Delicate Balance
Season 2  |  Episode 4  |  ABC2  |  March 10, 2013

Episode four follows the intensive care and respiratory doctors at Great Ormond Street Hospital as they deal with difficult ethical decisions. Modern medicine means that most children who come here will get better and leave within a short time but some conditions are so complex that the children become dependent on technology to keep them alive. Parents and doctors must weigh up when to keep relying on technology, and when it is no longer right to continue treatment.
