  • He said that LCP aaplies to last few hours, how about last 10days!!!
    I doubt if he would be able to see his own kith and kin put through the 'gasping' and strained breathing for so long especially when they could not pin point how long before death. Personal experince!!!!

  • LCP is being misused massively, a major review is needed, proper training is needed, a greater understanding is needed, paintents and families are not always informed that the LCP has been started, communication is a great must.
