Abstract

This is a personal view about the recent high court decision around cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This opinion identifies that the judge failed to recognise the statutory role given to clinicians in identifying when a treatment is life sustaining. In failing to recognise the role of the clinician, the ruling in Winspear risks the likelihood of inappropriate CPR attempts.
