This video support tool describing CPR lets patients make much better informed decisions about the use of CPR. Physicians often feel that CPR will not be of help to patients but nevertheless feel obligated to offer it or not withhold it. This video support tool describing CPR might enable patients to make much better informed decisions about the use of CPR. Letting patients view this 6 minute video convinced the great majority of them that CPR would not be unlikely to help them, which is very consistent with the medical facts. Nearly all of them felt very comfortable with watching the video. Maybe we should have this in a looptool available in every oncologist’s office.
