If you have decided you do not wish CPR to be tried, or if your doctor is sure CPR will not work, this will be written on a form called ‘Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation’ (a DNACPR form). This will be kept with your health records.
This decision is about CPR only. You will get any other treatment that you need, to keep you as well and comfortable as possible as well and comfortable as possible.
Your healthcare team will continue to give you the best care and treatment according to your individual needs.
