Clinical guidance and operational updates for all key major organs which can be transplanted
The majority of organ transplants are from deceased donors. These can be donors after brainstem death or donors after circulatory death which differ in the criteria used to establish that death has occurred.
Although most deceased donors are referred from intensive care units, there are potential donors in emergency departments and hospital wards, including tissue donors but also a number of potential donors after circulatory death. This section of the site provides guidelines and other resources for clinicians who may be in the position to refer a potential deceased donor.
