Do Not Resuscitate Directives in Kansas
Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) Directive
DNR stands for “Do Not Resuscitate.” A
DNR is a type of advance directive that you
complete in advance of a medical emergency.
Typically, only terminally ill patients have a
DNR directive or order. If a healthy person
has a DNR directive, it may prevent him from
receiving medical care needed to save his life.
Some people have the idea that the DNR
directive allows another person to remove life
support technology. is is not what the DNR
directive does. e DNR directive is a legal
document that allows adults to communicate,
in advance, their desire to not be revived,
should they stop breathing or their heart stops
beating. Having a DNR directive means that
you do not want to have cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR) performed by medical
personnel. If you are found without a heartbeat
or are not breathing, and you have a DNR
directive, then health care providers will not
attempt to “bring you back.” erefore, when
a DNR directive is in place, no steps can be
taken to restart the heart or breathing.
A DNR directive is usually put into
place by individuals who are ill or injured,
or by frail elderly, not by those who are in
reasonably good health. You may be given
an insignia by your physician (bracelet or
medallion) that identies you and your wish
to not be resuscitated.
