Why doctors say no

CPR

 

Physicians see and treat patients who have undergone CPR. Those patients are usually paralyzed, swollen with fluid, and unconscious. Upon witnessing that, physicians might wonder what the differences are between “living” and “existing”.

This could explain why their end-of-life care preferences differ from that of the general public.

    That’s sad to read. People have choices at the end f life and an Advance Decision (Living Will) is a vehicle to enable someone to refuse treatment which may artificially extend life, where the person has advanced, incurable or terminal illness. The pack from the Natural Death Centre charity also includes a Death Plan form and a Funeral Plan form.
