Do Not Resuscitate (DNR)

What If I Want To Be Resuscitated?

Next » « Previous


If you want your caregivers to do everything possible to keep you alive including restoring pulse and breathing, simply do not complete a DNR Directive. Without a DNR, the medical professionals are obligated to use all means possible to restore your pulse and breathing.

If you do have an active DNR order, you may rescind it at any time, either by destroying or marking the DNR order “VOID”, or by telling medical personnel at the time of crisis to ignore the order and resuscitate you.
