I am life support. Take a moment and ponder the word life support. What images come to mind? What does the term life support mean?

Mosby’s Medical Dictionary defines life support as “the use of any therapeutic technique, device, or technology to maintain physical life functions.” Webster’s says “providing support necessary to sustain life, especially: of or relating to a system providing such support, medical life-support equipment,” and the free online medical dictionary defines it as “a spectrum of techniques used to maintain life after the failure of one or more vital organs.” When asked about life support most people envision a hospital bed with a person attached to monitors, breathing machines, tubes and wires.
