Abstract

Many studies suggest that only 30% of potential transplant donors will donate organs. Of these, only 70% will become multiple organ donors. On the other hand, up to 40% of patients on transplant waiting lists die before transplantation. Demand clearly outstrips supply. Of the interventions to increase the supply of donor organs, optimal management of the donor patient is receiving increasing interest.
