Physicians should discuss with their patients the possibility of cardiac and respiratory arrest and describe the procedures for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the possible outcomes and ask their patients about their preferences. If the patient is unable to make a decision on the revival of an alternate who can make this decision by drawing on previously articulated wishes of the patient in the best interest of the patient.
Abandoning resuscitation (VAW-arrangement) in a patient’s file informs the medical workforce about the fact that cardiopulmonary resuscitation in case of cardiac arrest should not take place. This statement can be useful to avoid unnecessary and unwanted invasive treatments at the end of life. Physicians should discuss with their patients the possibility of cardiac and respiratory arrest and describe the procedures for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the possible outcomes and ask their patients about their preferences. If the patient is unable to make a decision on the revival of an alternate who can make this decision by drawing on previously articulated wishes of the patient in the best interest of the patient. Living wills and enduring powers of attorney are usually in emergency situations is not available and can therefore be ineffective. Almost all states have specific files to forgo resuscitation of patients who live at home or in another facility. These protocols typically require the signing of an arrangement to forgo resuscitation by the patient (or his representative) and the doctor and the use of a specific marking, eg. As a bracelet or a lapel pin worn by the patient or has in its vicinity. When a rescue service is called in emergencies and sees an intact tag, they will make a good care, but no Renan Imation. It is important to know about these protocols decision because it is not normally expected of paramedics to read a living will or durable power of attorney or be sent thereafter. Many patients with advanced disease are faced with increased challenges to ensure that their wishes are respected, not only with respect for CRP, but with respect for all critical care decision. To keep up with advanced disease to provide better care planning for patients, most states have adopted a type of program or are about to receive it, which is usually called “Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment” (POLST). Other name of the program included “Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment” (MOLST) “Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment (POST) and” Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment (MOST). The programs follow a common model, but have slightly different forms and strategies usually on. The most common criterion for classification as advanced disease in these programs when the doctor would not be surprised if the patient dies within the next year. The POLST process is initiated by health care providers and results in a number of medical orders that are portable across all health care facilities, targeting CPR, along with general treatment goals (pure comfort care, complete healing treatments or limited treatments in between) and other important medical decisions, such. As the use of artificial nutrition and hydration. These programs can help doctors best meet the needs of their patients regarding treatment goals and to ensure continuity in terms of care facilities. POLST and similar programs do not exist in every state, but they make more and more school. A national POLST Task Force offers a clearing house under www.polst.org.
