I’m looking for articles about COVID-19 and “Do Not Resuscitate” orders in hospitals


We have a COVID-19 Research Guide which provides quick access to sources of published research and other research-related information on COVID-19. You’ll notice that PubMed is listed in the COVID-19 Research Guide. For your topic, it’s a great place to start. To ensure you don’t miss any articles because of variations in the disease name, we recommend using the Advanced search: enter “do not resuscitate”, and then copy & paste these variations of the disease name into the PubMed search box, connected by OR: (“coronavirus 2019” OR covid-19 OR covid19 OR 2019nCoV OR “2019 nCoV” OR “2019 novel coronavirus” OR “coronavirus 2019” OR “coronavirus disease 2019” OR “corona virus disease 2019” OR ((wuhan AND coronavirus) AND 2019/12[PDAT]:2030[PDAT]) OR (“SARS-CoV-2” AND 2019/12[PDAT]:2030[PDAT]) ).

As always, If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
