Understanding DNR: Do Not Resuscitate

A Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order is a medical directive. It tells healthcare providers not to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if a person’s heart stops beating or they stop breathing. This is a personal decision often made by individuals who are terminally ill, elderly, or have a poor prognosis. Carrying a DNR card ensures that this choice is respected in an emergency.

What Is a DNR Order?

A DNR order is a legal document. It communicates a person's wish to forego CPR. CPR includes chest compressions, electric shocks, and artificial ventilation. Some individuals may find these interventions too invasive or not in line with their end-of-life wishes. A DNR order helps ensure their decisions are followed.

Why You Might Consider a DNR Order

People choose DNR orders for various reasons. Many terminally ill patients prefer to avoid aggressive treatments that might extend life but not improve its quality. Others may have chronic illnesses where resuscitation could lead to a prolonged and painful recovery without a meaningful quality of life. It's about making a personal choice for a dignified end-of-life process.

The Importance of Carrying a DNR Card

Having a DNR card on you at all times is crucial. In an emergency, medical personnel need to know your wishes immediately. The DNR card from The Card Project UK states clearly, "In an emergency, DNR." This direct message helps ensure your wishes are respected promptly.

Medical professionals are trained to save lives. Without clear instructions, they will perform CPR by default. A DNR card provides clarity. It reduces the burden on loved ones to make stressful decisions in a crisis. By carrying a DNR card, you are taking control of your end-of-life care.
