    Doctor in Netherlands 'asked family to hold down euthanasia patient'

    A doctor is under criminal investigation over a potential breach of Dutch euthanasia laws after slipping a sleeping drug into a woman’s coffee before asking family members to hold her down to allow the insertion of a drip through which a fatal dose could be administered.

    The Dutch medical complaints board has reprimanded the doctor, who retired in after her treatment of the 74-year-old patient, who had been suffering from severe dementia. The chief public prosecutor in The Hague is examining if there are grounds for criminal charges.

    Should a prosecution be launched, it would be the first since Dutch laws on euthanasia were relaxed in 2002 to allow a doctor to euthanise a patient if it could be shown they were in unbearable suffering and making an informed choice to die.

    The law was further relaxed in 2016, to allow doctors to administer a fatal drug to a patient with dementia if they had signed a euthanasia declaration under the supervision of their family doctor before their condition had deteriorated.

    The doctor under investigation, who was not named, has been found to have breached official guidelines in her treatment of the patient.

    The patient had been placed in a nursing home in Mariahoeve in The Hague after her condition became significantly worse, and it was there that a review by the on-site doctor concluded the woman was suffering unbearably from her condition.

    The unnamed patient had completed a living will five years prior to her death, saying she wished to die when she considered the time was right, but it was not a formal euthanasia declaration.

    A drug designed to make the patient sleep was put in her coffee, in breach of rules, it was found. The doctor, who is appealing against the ruling, also ignored the woman’s protests and inserted a drip into her arm, it was found. She further breached guidelines by asking family members to hold the patient down, according to an official report into the death.

    Queensland trial giving Viagra to pregnant women halted after Netherlands deaths

    A Queensland study on reducing foetal distress during childbirth through the use of Viagra has been paused after the death of 11 babies in a clinical trial in the Netherlands using the same drug.

    Mater Research Institute professor Sailesh Kumar said the study at the Mater Mother’s hospital used a much lower dosage of Sildenafil, which is sold as Viagra and dilates blood vessels in the pelvis, compared to the Dutch study.

    The Queensland study was used over a significantly shorter time frame and for different reasons, but it had been paused as a precautionary measure while he gathered more information from the Dutch researchers, he added.

    “Our study is in a very completely different context,” Kumar said on Wednesday.

    “We are using Sildenafil in women with full-term pregnancies who are appropriately grown. These are babies at 37 and beyond weeks.

    “Our primary aim is to see if it reduces the risk of a baby becoming distressed in labour.”

    The Dutch study, which started in 2015, looked at possible beneficial effects of increased blood flow to the placenta in mothers whose unborn babies were severely underdeveloped.

    Eleven babies of mothers using the medication died.

    When the overseas trial was stopped on Monday, roughly half of the 183 participating pregnant women were taking Sildenafil, the Amsterdam University’s academic medical centre (AMC) said in a statement.

    Kumar said a decision on the future of the Queensland study would be decided within a fortnight and, in the meantime, they have stopped recruiting mothers for their research.

    He said about 240 women had taken part in the study and there had been no adverse outcomes, comparing mothers who had taken a placebo pill and those who had been administered Sildenafil.

    “Our preliminary outcomes are promising,” he said.

    “In light of these results from Holland, we are going to go back and discuss the matter with them and make a decision over the next one or two weeks.”
