ALS, BLS and DNR banners - What do they mean?
Modified on: Wed, 30 Sep, 2020 at 11:23 AM
ALS, BLS, and DNR are displayed as banners over the patient image on the whiteboard.
ALS = Advanced Life Support
BLS = Basic Life Support
DNR = Do Not Resuscitate
These are meant to differentiate between patients who need to receive very invasive interventions in the event of a life-threatening emergency and those who should only receive typical interventions or no intervention at all.
These options will now be reflected as a banner on the patient's image on the iPads. Options can be picked at the time of creation with the default setting being BLS.
To change this setting go to the Patient Information page (if from the iPad, please open the General tab) > select the correct option > click Done or Save:

The setting chosen will display as a banner over the patient image, as shown here:
