Learn Spanish for discussing a DNR order and a more palliative approach to care.
We are revisiting a dialogue from our Palliative Care series, where a doctor discusses code status with the daughter of a patient admitted to the hospital with pneumonia. In the first half of this dialogue, the doctor explained CPR. In this second half of the dialogue, the doctor explains that when a person is in a fragile state of health, cardiopulmonary resuscitation often fails to achieve the desired results.
