Persistently Unconscious

Your physician and another physician have determined your condition is permanent, you are not aware of yourself, others, or your situation, and will not recover awareness.


The Oklahoma Advance Directive allows you to decide what kind of treatment you would like for the three conditions: terminal, persistently unconscious and end-stage.

  • All: All life-support treatment including CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation, artificially administrated nutrition (tube feedings) and hydration
  • Some: No to life-support treatment and CPR, but yes to artificially administrated nutrition and hydration
  • None: No to all life-support treatment, CPR, and artificially administrated nutrition.

NOTE: There is also the opportunity to add any special or additional instructions under each condition.
