My aunt is coherent, walking. She has had IV liquids for dehydration, meds for edema, on her 2 ER trips. Will that end if she has DNR?

DNR is for Do Not Resuscitate. If your aunt goes into cardiac arrest her DNR will prevent a Dr. from trying to resuscitate her. No paddles, no CPR, no breathing tube.

IV fluids and meds don't violate a DNR order.
