Effect of Timing of Do-Not-Resuscitate Orders on the Clinical Outcome of Critically Ill Patients
Korean Journal of Critical Care Medicine
Many physicians hesitate to discuss do-not-resuscitate (DNR) orders with patients or family members in critical situations. In the intensive care unit (ICU), delayed DNR decisions could cause unintentional cardiopulmonary resuscitation, patient distress, and substantial cost.

Methods: We enrolled retrospective patients with written DNR orders in a medical ICU (13 bed) from June 1, 2014 to May 31,doi:10.4266/kjccm.2016.00178 fatcat:z5bh4aqurffzzey5asi2gqxdvi
