### Yes, there are all kinds of conditions and restrictions you can put in
your wish list, and the default options in Epic include separate orders for
resuscitation, intubation, IV fluids, antibiotics - but still there is no
option to "Resuscitate if highly likely to do well, do not resuscitate if
likely to end up badly". This kind of distinction is actually pretty
difficult to define and implement in a scalable fashion.
