Healthcare, ethics and resuscitation
Cardiopulmonary rescue (CPR) should be initiated within 60 seconds of discovering a patient with cardiac arrest. When patients are severely ill, their physicians sometimes decide not to resuscitate them if their heart stops. It is important that these decisions are communicated to the medical staff that are closest to the patient at the time of cardiac arrest. Find out what Mona Pettersson has to say about do not resuscitate (DNR) orders being issued too late and being unclear and poorly documented.
