1] The correct answer for this question is the third option, that is, let the patient know that you will inform the medical team to discuss this and complete the resuscitation statusin the notes to action this.
As it's patients wish to not to be resuscitated you should always respect the patients wish but since it's a very important decision it's always good if the patient discusses this with his medical team and than take a action on it.
2] the correct answer for this question is administration of a salbutamol nebulizer or inhaler with a spacer.
As salbutamol is a bronchodilator, it relaxes the muscles of the airway and makes it easier to breathe.
