Supporting organ donation through end-of-life care: implications for heart-beating donation

Clinical Ethics 6 (3):122-126 (2011)

New protocols have been developed for donors after circulatory death involving early assessment of donor status and premortem supporting treatment in appropriate cases where there is evidence that the patient wished to be an organ donor. These donors are now making an increasingly marked impact on overall deceased donor numbers in the UK. Donors after brainstem death, on the other hand, are much less buoyant yet require the same flexibility in approach in order to improve rates of donation and to realize the wishes of potential deceased organ donors to the proper requisite extent
