Medical Misunderstandings

As medical technology’s improvement and consummation, people always want to find a best way to treat each of diseases, and some researchers are confident about that. Anyhow, we do admit that sometimes they really did what they wanted. Such as, many diseases can be controlled, or even cured now. Nonetheless, not all of illnesses, most of time we should say that researchers who are trying to find a best way to help people with diseases rather than to treat diseases. The most influential example is Ebola, which is the most dangerous sickness people are facing, and there is no an approved way or drug can affect it. However, researchers are trying to find out treatment methods to help people by doing trials of experimental Ebola vaccines.

This point is very important because of three reasons. Firstly, giving patients a right and clear way to let them know the truth of their condition and treatment procedures will avoid some of unnecessary medical misunderstandings between doctors and patients. For some control groups, they might not be able to tell patients what will they do for them. Therefore, it is easy to get misunderstandings of doctors and patients, if treatments are fail. Secondly, according to Hróbjartsson (2002), he mentioned that the effect of placebo has two main cases, one is effect of placebo intervention, and another one is effect of patient-provider interaction. Both of cases have a latent problem that is double blinding. In addition, as we all know, the placebo is not an effective drug that can really help people with Ebola. If patients who take placebos will not be cured or suppressed of Ebola virus, and it might case other side effects to patients. Therefore, we should stop to give people placebos instead of the real drugs. Thirdly, It is unfair to make patients into two different groups that one is a test group with real drug, and another one is a control group with placebos for Ebola tests, because the control group’s probability of survival is apparently far less than the test group’s the probability of survival, because one important different between the placebos and the clinical tests is the effect of placebo is almost near to be pointless (Hróbjartsson 2002). Consequently, there would be has anyone who wants to join into control
