ALS, BLS and DNR banners - What do they mean?
Modified on: Tue, 24 Mar, 2020 at 9:20 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.
