Smith, A. M., 1 In Seattle, members of the public at large were concerned that using survival statistics to determine access to resources might beinherently discriminatory, the project report said, because of institutional racism in the health care system; if some groups (e.g., African Americans and immigrants) do not receive the same quality of care, then their rates of recovery and other survivability measures would be biased. The hypothesis is based on three fundamental propositions. The first, as Friedman and Stricker explained, is that the supply of fuel to all body tissues must always remainadequate for them to function during all physiological conditions and even during prolonged food deprivation. The second proposition is Hans Krebss revelation from the 1940s that each of the various metabolic fuelsprotein, fats, and carbohydratesis equally capable of supplying energyto meet the demands of the body. The third is that the body has no way of telling the difference between fuels from internal sourcesthe fat tissue, liver glycogen, muscle proteinand fuels that come from external sourcesi.e., whatever we eat that day. Skinner asked to speak with Pou privately, away from Heikamp and the nurse.I told her that I thought this patient was still living and that we should evacuate this patient. And that I would like to go and get appropriate help; find someone to help us carry her.
