The care of potential organ do-nors differs from that of other criti-. Medications used in organ donor management protocols in order to critically evaluate each medication order and ap-propriately manage the donor.
Some authors recommend reducing the period of maintenance to avoid heart pulmonary or other organs deterioration.
Organ donor management protocol. Goals of Organ Donor Management Stabilize patient through catecholamine storm Provide balanced resuscitation to donor organs Target normal physiology Temperature hemodynamics oxygenation and metabolism Avoid positive fluid balance. Appropriate laboratory tests diag-nostics respiratory care treatments medications and outcomes in each phase of donation. As of August 2007 96 900 people are awaiting organ transplantation in the United States while only 28 930 transplants were performed in 2006.
The target users of this guideline include organ donation organizations policymakers administrators and clinicians who manage neurologically deceased organ donors. Combined Hormonal Therapy For organ donor management levothyroxine vasopressin and methylprednisolone are ordered in combination. This article offers a review of the publications.
The goal of this consensus statement is to provide critical care practitioners with essential information and practical recommendations related to management of the potential organ donor based on the available literature and expert consensus. In the UK an actual DBD donor donates an average of 33 organs with the number of organ transplants being retrieved and transplanted particularly the thoracic organs – falling sharply in donors over the age of 50 years. Management of Tachycardia Manage as any critically ill patient.
Give levothyroxine for cardiac donor. Ensure patient is euvolemic. On the basis of pulmonary physiology and the knowledge gained from the literature search Gift of Life Michigan developed a lung donor management protocol that has been very effective.
Levothyroxine 100 mcg IV for 1 dose and then 50 mcg IV q12h AND. Many recent reviews on this subject offer recommendations that are sometimes contradictory and in some cases are not applied to other critically ill patients. Despite major advances in our understanding of the physiopathology of brain death BD there are important controversies as to which protocol is the most appropriate for organ donor management.
The management of the pediatric organ donor will be dictated by regional standards of care and the physicians caring for the child. This clinical practice guideline is intended for use in the care of both neurologically deceased adult and pediatric potential organ donors. This organ and tissue donor manual is intended to serve as a guidance document on the organ and tissue donation process.
The fundamental principles of organ donor management Table 3 are based on monitoring and therapies used widely in ICU and include confirmation of therapeutic goals regular review and prompt change of therapy when required. A protocol-driven approach by a dedicated organ donor management team should be considered a key component of any program designed to bridge the gap between organ supply and demand. Management of the adult brain dead potential organ donor follows generic intensive care principles to support and optimise organ function Donor management seeks to optimise the number and function of organs retrieved for transplantation in order to maximise the outcome for the recipient.
Keywords transplantation organ donor aggressive donor management in-house coordinator solid organ transplant brain death organ donation. Consultation with a pediatric intensive care specialist and your regional medical director is essential to ensure the best possible outcome for organ recovery. All recommendations apply to pediatric and adult donors except for the minimal acceptable.
The manual is laid out in a manner representing the donation process. Practical aspects of organ donor management. Donor management time On many occasions once the authorization for organ retrieval has been obtained the period until donor transfer to operating room becomes a race against time to reduce maintenance times.
A protocol-driven approach by a dedicated organ donor management team should be considered a key component of any program designed to bridge the gap between organ supply and demand. The most common derangements requiring early attention are hypothermia hypotension and diabetes insipidus. There is now considerable evidence that the application of standardised donor management protocols increases the number of retrieved organs with a particular impact on retrieval of cardiothoracic organs.

Miller Symposium on Organ Donation and Transplantation T4 Protocol Highlights Takeaways Insulin D50 and Methylprednisolone given with initial bolus Helps push T4 into cells Should see effects within 30 minutes Run for 6-8 hours prior to Echocardiogram Donor may become hyperdynamic Tachycardic and hypertensive. Donor management involves optimizing the cardiopulmonary and endocrine systems to restore optimal circulating intravascular volume normalize electrolyte and metabolic imbalances and maintain hemodynamics to promote adequate perfusion and oxygenation of donor organs thus maximizing the viability and function of procured organs 3-5.
In 4 years the number of. The literature was reviewed for lung donor management strategies and other organ procurement organizations were surveyed for existing donor management guidelines to improve lung function. The clinical practice and ethics of starting donor manage ment interventions before neurologic determination of death are not addressed by this guideline.
We based our recommendations on organ donor management literature from both age groups although we discovered very little pediatric-specific literature.
