What can cause Severe Suffering

Severe suffering can occur for three main reasons:

  • Some procedures or ‘models’ are inherently more likely to cause severe suffering
     
  • In some cases, a combination of less severe factors can lead to an increase in overall suffering; this is often termed 'cumulative severity'
     
  • Mortality may involve severe suffering; this includes both unexpected mortality and ‘death as an endpoint’
