Title: Ethical Issues: DNR Revisited
Author: Fleming, David A.
Date: 2005-02
Publisher: Center for Health Ethics
Series/Report no.: Ethical Issues Series;Feb. 2005
Abstract: In most cultures, when making treatment decisions for adults, children, and neonates with end stage illness, there tends to be universal agreement that overly aggressive treatment should be discouraged when death is near and further intervention is felt to be futile. This includes the use of CPR, artificial hydration and nutrition, unnecessary diagnostic procedures, and interventions that may sustain life but not necessarily provide optimal patient comfort.
