Question: There is certainly a lot of confusion that remains in regards to DNR’s. From your replies, I get the impression that if someone is breathing, has a pulse and a valid DNR, but has respiratory or cardiac problems which may or may not be corrected with artificial ventilation, assisted ventilation without an artificial airway (conscious CHF)or chest compressions we are to provide NRB O2, symptom relief meds and comfort measures. That being said, if someone has a valid DNR becomes obstructed with a FB, we have been instructed by BH personnel to attempt to clear the FB and if death results in the process, validate the DNR and stop the efforts. If this is correct, are we not providing or at least attempting to provide A/R in one of the steps to alleviate the obstruction? This would be in contraindication to past answers which the committee has provided. Not trying to be a pain, just looking for clarity for viewers and myself. Great site – your time and effort is appreciated.
