After reading several post in the Biggest Mistake thread. I have a question. IF someone is DNR that does that mean in all sceniarios? OR say they are DNR due to a terminal illness then it would go without saying according to the pts advance directives. So lets say a patient is choking, you do they hemilich (spelling
) and the object does not come dislodged, they go unconscience, they have a DNR. Are we to do nothing at this point? Im wondering if there is a grey area with this subject. Or maybe I am confused. I have worked with only a handful of DNR's so any information or clarifications would be great.
