To the Editor: Levinson and Mills are to be lauded for their article on the need to rethink our approach to cardiopulmonary resuscitation in hospitalised patients.1 They outline the barriers to open discussion at an individual and a society level. However, they have omitted a key barrier: the language that we use to discuss the topic.
