Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

My mom (77) died xmas 2019 of "complications" attributed to emphysema (COPD) 12 years after diagnosis. So I'm rather familiar with US "quality" and "continuity" of care drills at home or in hospital, indicated and contra-indicated RX, RX "side effects" as well as comorbid disease such as diabetes Type II (acquired, secondary condition), Medicare benefits schedules, and convergence of medical specialists and pulmonary equipment (eg. CPAP, BiPAP, ventilator) periodically assembled to maintain her ahh health.

I did previously mention the ultimate brief on "brain death" with the attending, while my brother grieved.
