Quiz: Do-Not-Resuscitate (DNR) Orders
Question 1 of 3  

A do-not-resuscitate (DNR) order is a document placed in a person’s medical record by a doctor. It informs the medical staff at a hospital that cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) should not be attempted if a person’s heart and/or breathing stops. CPR is often followed by more drastic measures such as use of electric shocks to the heart or insertion of a breathing tube; a DNR order stops these measures as well. When administered near the end of life, what is the success rate of CPR?

  • A.

    Extremely low

  • B.

    Moderately successful

  • C.

    Successful most of the time

  • D.

    Nearly always successful

Am I correct?
