Brain death: from diagnosis to organ donation


Brain death: from diagnosis to organ donation
Organ donation can be a transformative event for those who receive a transplant. Anaesthetists and Intensive Care doctors are at the forefront of facilitating and managing potential donors. Though well-established protocols and pathways exist, ethical issues and complex physiology can hamper success and make donation difficult. This webinar is aimed at improving understanding of diagnosis of brain death and optimal donor management to ensure success in organ donation.
