- One form of medical action that the patient has the potential to refuse is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). If a patient has the right to refuse CPR, does this mean that the statement “Do-Not-Resuscitate” (DNR) is the same as euthanasia? This is an empiric juridical research and aims to identify regulations related to patient DNR consent as a form of refusal to CPR. The DNR still requires a more in-depth study of various related aspects, including (but not limited to) legal, religious, social, culture, medical, technology, and bioethics. The understanding related to “death” and its relation to human rights to live and determine their life is also a consideration in thinking about DNR regarding this CPR. Aspects of communication and documentation of DNR results against CPR (if so decided) also need to be carefully planned.
