Abstract

EMS physicians and providers should provide high-quality, compassionate, and medically appropriate end-of-life care. This includes protocols and education that guide when and when not to provide resuscitation and other life-sustaining treatments, as well as direction for support of the grieving survivors left behind. Patient preferences for end-of-life care in the form of advance directives, do not resuscitate (DNR) orders, and Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) are increasingly common and must be accurately interpreted by EMS professionals.
