Resuscitation Issues


Hi all,

Just wondering has anyone ever come across an order of 'not for resuscitation, but for full active management' before. To what extent would you personally consider this active management to be? Any articles you'd have on this would be greatly appreciated!

NO I would ask for clarification. That is not something you would conflicting orders for.

It was clarified as being for full medical care, antibiotics etc. And defined as not for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, CPAP, ByPAP, or admission to the ICU.
