Default INTUBATE

HI,
I have just come back from the emergency room where my younger brother was admitted early this am. He is having trouble breathing and they have placed him on the bi pap mask and the doctors the emergency doctor and two neurologitst on staff talked to the family today and told us we should talk to Craig about intubating. They told us that this may or may not add to the quality of life he has left and I was wondering if any of the PALS or their caregivers have incountered this situation and if you may give us some insight so I may be better prepared to talk to my brother about this decision he has to make sooner or later. thnx Joy
