In the recent years donation after cardio-circulatory death (DCD) donors, either from an uncontrolled or a controlled DCD program, have been a focus of intense interest in the transplant community, based on the high potential they have to increase the number of organ donors.

On one side, uncontrolled DCD donors – in whom cardiac arrest occurs unexpectedly, typically outside the hospital setting, and who are declared dead after unsuccessful attempts at resuscitation – has a huge potential to significantly expand the donor pool. In spite of its estimated potential, the actual use of organs from uncontrolled DCD donors for transplant is not sufficient. While many transplant groups across the globe are interested in initiating uncontrolled DCD programs, they lack the experience necessary to appropriately manage these donors during organ maintenance, recovery, and transplantation, in order to be able to achieve posttransplant outcomes similar to conventional donors.

Objectives

  • To provide transplant professionals with the knowledge and technical skills necessary to organize the uncontrolled and controlled DCD process and adequately maintain potential donors to obtain organs for transplant.
  • To discuss the results of these procedures, including potential pitfalls, areas for improvements, and perspectives toward the future.

Adressed to

Health care professionals involved in uncontrolled and controlled DCD, including but not limited to emergency, intensive care and anaesthesia medical physicians, transplant coordinators and surgeons, working or interested in working in the field.
