Heartburn during Pregnancy Cause Discomfort and Irritation.

The most common complaint among ladies during their third trimester of pregnancy is a pain in the gut. This awful experience typically occurs after eating, and a severe burning sensation usually accompanies the heartburn.

The heartburn is mostly predominant in the third trimester because of the compression force exerted by the developing fetus.

What’s DNR?

DNR means Do Not Resuscitate. A DNR is a legal note carried by a patient, barring doctors from resuscitating.  A DNR order can either be written or oral, depending on the country.

Without a DNR order, healthcare providers will immediately begin CPR procedures on a patient in case of an emergency. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation involves mouth to mouth or machine breathing and chest compressions to restore the function of the heart in case their heart or breathing has stopped.

DNR orders are prepared before an emergency, and it gives instructions on whether to receive CPR or not during an emergency. They are written under the direction of the patient or the patient’s family, after consultation with a physician.
