Living Wills and Health Care Powers of Attorney are not designed for the administration of CPR. In fact, in some states, these documents are not permitted to control CPR

Living Wills and Healthcare Proxies are designed to permit medical decisions to be made when you are unable to make them and when there is time to determine your wishes, assess your health condition, make predictions about what will happen, and then make a decision.
