    Article - En anglais


    To assess changes in the terminal care of critically ill patients before and after the institution of do-not-resuscitate (DNR) order policies, and policies on the care of the hopelessly ill.


    Retrospective chart review that comprises the following groups:

    • 82 consecutive deaths from 1981 to 1982, representing our older practice pattern of frequent utilization of terminal resuscitative efforts (group A);

    • 37 consecutive death between June and December 1987, the 6-month period immediately preceding the adoption of the DNR policy (group B);

    • and 61 consecutive deaths in calendar year 1988 after the DNR policy went into effect (group C).
