Oklahoma Do Not Resuscitate Form

OKLAHOMA DO­NOT­RESUSCITATE (DNR) CONSENT FORM
I,
, request limited health care as
described in this document. If my heart stops beating or if I stop breathing, no
medical procedure to restore breathing or heart function will be instituted by any
health care provider including, but not limited to, emergency medical services
(EMS) personnel.
I understand that this decision will not prevent me from receiving other health
care such as the Heimlich maneuver or oxygen and other comfort care measures.
I understand that I may revoke this consent at any time in one of the
following ways:
1. If I am under the care of a health care agency, by making an oral, written, or
other act of communication to a physician or other health care provider of a
health care agency;
2. If I am not under the care of a health care agency, by destroying my do­not­
resuscitate form, removing all do­not­resuscitate identification from my person,
and notifying my attending physician of the revocation;
3. If I am incapacitated and under the care of a health care agency, my
representative may revoke the do­not­resuscitate consent by written notification
to a physician or other health care provider of the health care agency or by oral
notification to my attending physician; or
4. If I am incapacitated and not under the care of a health care agency, my
representative may revoke the do­not­resuscitate consent by destroying the
do­not­resuscitate form, removing all do­not­resuscitate identification from my
person, and notifying my attending physician of the revocation.
I give permission for this information to be given to EMS personnel, doctors,
nurses, and other health care providers. I hereby state that I am making an
informed decision and agree to a do­not­resuscitate order.

CERTIFICATION OF PHYSICIAN
This form is to be used by an attending physician only to certify that an
incapacitated person without a representative would not have consented to the
administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the event of cardiac or
respiratory arrest. An attending physician of an incapacitated person without a
representative must know by clear and convincing evidence that the incapacitated
person, when competent, decided on the basis of information sufficient to
constitute informed consent that such person would not have consented to the
administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the event of cardiac or
respiratory arrest. Clear and convincing evidence for this purpose shall include
oral, written, or other acts of communication between the patient, when competent,
and family members, health care providers, or others close to the patient with
knowledge of the patient’s desires.
I hereby certify, based on clear and convincing evidence presented to me, that I
believe that
Name of Incapacitated Person
would not have consented to the administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation
in the event of cardiac or respiratory arrest. Therefore, in the event of cardiac or
respiratory arrest, no chest compressions, artificial ventilation, intubations,
defibrillation, or emergency cardiac medications are to be initiated.
