End-of-life care for many infants involves the withdrawal of mechanical ventilation. Usually this takes place in the hospital environment, but sometimes parents request that their infant dies at home. Facilitating this has significant practical and resource implications and raises both logistical and ethical questions. In this article, we report a neonatal case involving home extubation, explaining the processes involved as well as providing an ethical context.
