Abstract: There is currently a shortage of organ donors to meet the demands of transplantation waiting lists. In recent years there has been renewed interest in donation after cardiac death in order to increase the pool of potential donors. The Organ and Tissue Authority has recently developed a national policy for donation after cardiac death. We describe here a checklist that is used by our hospital-based staff for organ donation which outlines important steps in the donation after cardiac death process.
