Ethics series, we offer this POINT/COUNTERPOINT Debate and frame it with the following vignette: At Grand Rounds regarding end-of-life issues, a visiting professor offered that when cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is unlikely to promote survival with a reasonable quality of life, he shares his assessment with the patient. If the patient does not object, he enters a “no CPR” order in the patient’s medical record.
