Abstract

The growing disparity between organ availability for transplantation and the number of patients in need has challenged the donation and transplantation community of practice to develop innovative processes, ideas, and techniques to bridge the gaps. Advances in the sharing of best practices in the donation community have contributed greatly over the last 8 years. Broader sharing of updated guidelines for declaration of brain death in conjunction with improvements in deceased donor management have increased opportunities for organ donation. New techniques for organ preservation and organ resuscitation have allowed for better utilization of the potential donor pool. This review will highlight processes, ideas, and techniques in organ donation.
