living will (LIH-ving wil)

A type of legal advance directive in which a person describes specific treatment guidelines
that are to be followed by health care providers if he or she becomes terminally ill and cannot

treatment to keep a person alive (such as CPR, artificial nutrition, use of a respirator).
