Variation among hospitals in the proportion of patients with DNR orders who received mechanical ventilation for acute respiratory failure
(Figure S2A, 32 outlier hospitals) and central venous catheter for septic shock (Figure S2B) was large when compared with CPR for cardiac arrest (Figure S2C, 2 outlier hospitals) and hemodialysis for acute renal failure (Figure S2D, 0 outlier hospitals).

Laboratory tests were normal except for an abnormal arterial blood gas, indicating acute respiratory failure
that led to the use of continuous positive airway pressure followed by endotracheal intubation.
Patients with an MRDx of traumatic intracranial injury were less likely to be in the high-cost group (adjusted OR 0.25, 95% CI 0.08-0.82), while patients with complications of procedures (OR 2.85, 95% CI 1.52-5.33), acute respiratory failure
(OR 2.25, 95% CI 1.37-3.68), or malignancy (OR 1.65, 95% CI 0.08-2.67) were more likely to be in the high-cost group.
