Family presence during resuscitation: Updated review and clinical pearls.
There is mounting evidence that Family Presence During Resuscitation (FPDR) can benefit family members who wish to observe the resuscitation efforts of a loved one. Given that older patients have poor resuscitation outcomes, presence of a family advocate could add value to the process of end of life decision making. A review of the current literature from the perspectives of patients, families, and health-care providers will help in reassessing family involvement during resuscitation and developing best practices for health care facilities.
