A do not resuscitate order or DNR is written record of the decision of the patient or their medical proxy not to use extraordinary measures if the patient goes into cardiac arrest or respiratory arrest. It is common in late stage terminal illnesses, particularly where the patient is in great pain or is close to death.

In DNR, House ignores a DNR order and gets charged with assault.
