People With DNR Orders More Apt to Die After Any Surgery
Date:4/18/2011

>

"The DNR patients may have surgery to gain 'additional time'; nevertheless, our study demonstrates that almost a quarter of DNR patients die within 30 days of surgery," the study authors noted.

"Informed consent and elicitation of the goals of surgery, especially as they relate to overall goals of care, are essential for guiding surgical decisions involving DNR patients and their families. Issues pertaining to DNR status are complex, and they should be anticipated long before the 30-day period leading to an operation," the study authors concluded.
