Do-Not-Resuscitate Guide basics

Sometimes you cannot make decisions about your health care, like whether or not you're resuscitated in an emergency, but with a Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNR) Guide you can empower yourself before something happens. Getting a Do-Not-Resuscitate Guide helps you make an informed decision.

Use the Do-Not-Resuscitate Guide document if:

  • You want to compare DNR programs.
  • You'd like more info on DNR options in your state.

It's never easy to plan for worst case scenarios, but you can get information and help in making a decision with a Do-Not-Resuscitate Guide. Many states have passed legislation or regulations that provide a "prehospital DNR program," which means that a physician's DNR order can be honored outside of the hospital setting. With a Do-Not-Resuscitate Guide you can think about possibilities in advance. If the worst happens, you want your wishes granted. Choosing a DNR program means that medical professionals can legally withhold certain treatments according to what you've decided. You should also talk to your family about your wishes.

Getting a Do-Not-Resuscitate Guide helps you open a discussion with your loved ones, and make a choice that is right for you.
