Withdraw resuscitation in the ED

And damn’d be him that first cries, _Hold, enough!_
St.Emlyn’s with Richard Taylor.
St. Emlyn´s - March 13, 2016 - By Simon Carley 
"In conclusion, as Emergency Physicians we will be faced with situations where the question of withdrawing life sustaining treatment may arise. In such a situation it is vital that we engage with colleagues, family members and act within the AMRC’s code of conduct in order to arrive at the right position ethically and legally. In order to do so it is necessary to have an awareness of this area, and I hope this has offered a way in to consider these issues."
