10: How can I give you work if you're taking time off to get examinations done?
1: Besides, you've virtually taken responsibility over Akagi-san, haven't you?
2: I don't know what your position is in relation to her,
3: but as far as the hospital goes, it's your job to look after her, right?
4: But sensei, your husband...
5: simply wants to do a live transplant between two unrelated people to further his career, right?
6: Therefore he's decided to use Akagi-san and myself for that purpose.
7: At least, that's what Akagi-san said.
1: What, are you trying to say that you think you're being used?
2: Is it a bad thing to work for one's own benefit?

12: 1. Whether or not he is in a deep coma. 2. Whether or not his pupils are fixated and widened. 3. Whether or not his brainstem's reactions against shocks are completely gone. 4. Whether or not his brainwaves are flat. 5. Whether or not he can breath voluntarily.
1: If you wish, we can carry out the judgment with you present.
2: What would you like?
3: Injections and an IV will be necessary to stabilize blood pressure and urine volume.
4: Please understand that this is not any sort of therapy for Hiroshi-san.
5: We will also run tests for infectious diseases and other general inspections.

2: you are allowed to withdraw your consent at any time.
