ALTMAN New York Times Service SEATTLE Dr. Gary a 39-year-old physician who sought both miracles and medical expertise to stay alive while a painful cancer destroyed his in death is communicating through a series of video tapes some major messages about how a patient chooses to die. One message that becomes evident as Leinbach talks while li- quid nourishment flows into his veins is that the dying man as a consumer of health care should be permitted a louder voice in how and where he wants to be treated. By a supreme twist of Leinbach's death came from a dis- ease that he had become a specialist in treating. In his practice and in teaching at the University of Washington he had diagnosed bowel diseases like the cancer that afflicted him. The cancer sapped the strength of the strong-willed yet he struggled to live every day possible to be home with his wife and two growing children. His patients regarded Leinbach as a compassionate physician. He was an educator experienced in teaching young doctors through videotapes. In his profession he was trained to deal with dying people. because fate turned the tables and he underwent the same experience as a Leinbach agreed to be interviewed on videotape during the three-month period before his death. The University of Washington carried the process a step beyond videotaping Leinbach expressing his feelings. Also included were his wife and brother and the teams of doctors who cared for his pains and and the clergy who tried to help the agnostic physician make a spiritual peace. Another message conveyed by the videotapes of the doctors and clergy is that a large communications gap exists between each of these professional groups and the dying patients they serve. The series of formal dialogues is probably the first to en- compass the emotional reactions of so broad a segment of peo- ple involved with a dying patient. It is being made available to selected groups as an educational tool to provoke discussions about a wide range of social and economic topics related to dying. To a large the tapes reflect the unprecedented amount of attention Americans are devoting to the phenomenon of death. In books and lectures many people are advocating eu- death with dignity and pulling the plug. Critics say doctors often go too far in treating patients with incurable con- ditions. In these less attention is given to those like Leinbach who seek second medical opinions and demand an ac- tive role in decisions affecting their own care. These patients reject certain standard therapies and jump at experimental techniques as they shop among medical centers in hopes of liv- ing longer. Some therapies are costly. Others are uncomfor- table to the patient and put emotional strains on the family. Their cases are not described in textbooks. Yet this characteristic of trying to survive at all costs is a basic human instinct. Now this instinct is often being discussed in the context of consumer a phrase more generally used in debates over the quality of manufactured goods. Speaking from his Leinbach in the videotapes raises many questions about such practices. The videotapes focused on his anger and fear of dying in the prime of life. before he had a chance to accomplish what he had spent many- years learning to do. He survived on hope. The videotapes bring out family conflicts about drug addic- tion from the constant use of pain a common problem in treating chronic terminal illnesses. The videotapes are not a philosophical discourse. They are full of human touches. Mrs. Leinbach's description of their daughter's saying instead of her customary when she saw her father hours before his have deeply moved many of the hundreds of professionals who have seen the videotapes.
