    Re: Query help, please

    Hello Jayce

    Well, anybody can have a golden ticket that wants to; it's what they call an advance directive. In other words, you're stating in writing, officially, here's what interventions I will/won't allow. An MD has to sign off on it to make it valid.

    Basically it's people who are very old and/or very sick. You can anticipate a DNR in someone who lives in a nursing home that isn't likely to ever get back out, perhaps over 85 y/o, someone with a life-limiting condition such as inoperable cancer, emphysema, end-stage renal failure, etc.

    Other advance directives include a DNI, or "do not intubate," meaning you want to limit the amount of respiratory interventions that are done. This could kill you faster than a DNR.

    the DNR

    DNR is also claimed for religious reasons, or because the person's planning to be deep-frozen.
