An Ohio do not resuscitate (DNR) order form tells emergency medical service providers and other health care professionals that a patient does not wish to receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) if experiencing cardiac or respiratory arrest. A patient with a DNR order in place will receive general care to alleviate pain such as oxygen and pain medication, though no life-saving or life-prolonging treatments will be administered. The DNR order may be executed by the patient, by an authorized representative acting on the patient’s behalf, *or under the conditions of the patient’s living will.

*Two (2) physicians must certify the individual as being in a permanently unconscious state, terminally ill, or both.
