If I am unable to participate in my health care decisions, I direct my attending physician to withhold or withdraw life-sustaining procedures that merely prolong the dying process and are not necessary to my comfort or freedom from pain. YES__ NO__ In the event that medical professionals determine that I may be an organ donor, I agree to the use of life-sustaining procedures, including a ventilator, for the sole purpose and time period required to complete the organ donation.
