Some paramedics with advanced training - those who can give drugs and start IVs - already are allowed to stop giving CPR if their efforts fail and they have consulted a doctor, said lead researcher Dr. Laurie J. Morrison of the University of Toronto.
But 60 percent of Americans and Canadians, mostly in rural areas, are served by rescue workers who only have basic skills and don't have that option, she said.
"Now they make no decisions whatsoever," Morrison said."They just start the resuscitation, put them in the back of the ambulance, and drive."
Taking such lost causes to the hospital ties up ambulances and emergency departments, and the race to get there is hazardous for rescue workers and other motorists, researchers said.
Morrison said her group studied the issue after she was approached by two frustrated paramedics.
Morrison said surveys suggest that families often accept the decision to stop CPR.

The Termination of Resuscitation (TOR) study group wanted to identify cases in which further resuscitation efforts are futile and emergency personnel should instead support the family, according to Laurie Morrison, MD, associate professor of emergency medicine at the University of Toronto.

The Toronto Star (5/24, Daubs) reported that according to Dr. Laurie Morrison, a clinician scientist at St. Michael's Hospital, the CPR "methods taught in Toronto's high schools needs a breath of fresh air. Specifically, she notes that the current methods taught are "too time and labor intensive for the schools. The Star added that "a survey of 268 Catholic, public and private high schools" showed that "only half of the schools in Toronto taught the CPR protocol mandated in the province's physical health curriculum. Morrison is suggesting that schools use a CPR kit, "endorsed by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada,"that "includes a 22 minute instructional DVD, a blow up mannequin, and does not require separate teacher certification."
