DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) Medical Awareness ID Alert Card

What is a DNR Order?

A Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order is a crucial medical directive that instructs healthcare providers not to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if a person's heart stops or if they stop breathing. This decision is deeply personal and often made by individuals with serious illnesses or those in advanced stages of life. It reflects a choice to prioritise comfort and dignity over aggressive medical interventions in emergencies.

To get a DNR order, one must have a frank discussion with a healthcare provider. This conversation typically involves understanding the individual’s health status, discussing end-of-life preferences, and considering the implications of such a decision. Once decided, the healthcare provider will document the DNR order in the patient's medical records.

It’s essential to inform close family members and caregivers about your DNR decision. This ensures that in an emergency, those around you are aware of your preferences and can communicate them to emergency personnel. Additionally, it’s helpful to inform your GP and any specialists involved in your care, so they are all on the same page regarding your treatment preferences.

Choosing a DNR order is a personal decision often based on the desire to avoid invasive medical procedures that may not significantly improve one’s quality of life. For many, it represents a choice to focus on comfort, quality of life, and dignity at the end stages of life.
