Part of a series on Medical Halachah. Is biblically prohibited melachah permitted on Yom Tov for medical care as "ochel nefesh" or under "mitoch"? Does the rabbinic decree that prohibits medicine on Shabbos "lest one grind ingredients" apply on Yom Tov, when one may grind spices? What is the status of Yom Tov Sheni, the second day of Yom Tov?
