Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Directives
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Directive (DNR) is an advance medical directive pertaining to the administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which is a medical order based on informed consent, signed by or on behalf of an individual and a physician, a physician assistant, or a nurse practitioner, directing emergency medical services personnel to not perform resuscitative measures in the event of a respiratory or cardiac arrest or malfunction.
The "No CPR" form is a simple & clear alternative to a "Do Not Resuscitate" (DNR) form, and has been reviewed and approved by the Medical Direction Standing Advisory Committee for use in the pre-hospital setting.
