CaptainMandate - I completely agree that the key phrases that start off the editorial are:

"elderly patient was admitted with pneumonia"

Dr George sees a "crumpled heap" and treats accordingly:

"Dr. George gave Ayer emergency oxygen and admitted him immediately to the intensive care unit, where his condition improved. “He would not have survived the day.”

Of course this is a story about a oxygen deprived brain dying. What on earth makes Oxford educated people proclaim that the ramblings of those who are dying or suffering dementia are evidence of spectacular and other world insight?
