In Death's Shadow: The Meanings of Withholding Resuscitation
Hastings Center Report. 1987 Oct/Nov; 17(5): 9-14.
Many of the controversies surrounding the withholding of resuscitation are illuminated when we examine the language of resuscitation and resuscitative decisionmaking, and the contexts in which these decisions are made. Resuscitation and its withholding have multiple and often conflicting symbolic and emotional meanings for patients, families, and clinicians, and recognizing this divergence is essential to communication and to decisionmaking.
