We need a law for resusitation age limits!!!

Posted Mar 19 2009 4:20am
Just a quick note of something that I think needs to be implemented for the humane treatment of older adults who would happen to have their heart stop beating:

"Anyone over the age of 90 years should automatically deemed DNR."

I would even go as low as 85 years old if allowed. It's almost inhumane to code an patient who is over 90 years old and put them through that.

Maybe I will get into this more in depth later.


Just a thought.
