Objective:For many patients who suffer cardiac arrest, cardiopulmonary resuscitation does not result in long-term survival. For some of these patients, the evolution to donation of organs becomes an option. Organ transplantation after cardiopulmonary resuscitation is not reported as an outcome of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and is therefore overlooked. We sought to determine the number and proportion of organs transplanted from donors who received cardiopulmonary resuscitation after a cardiac… Expand

Paper Mentions

The viability of transplanting organs from donors who underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation: A systematic review.
TLDR
CPR does not appear to adversely affect graft function and those with on-going CPR should be considered for hepatic and renal transplantation but there may be worse initial graft function. Expand
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation: saving life then saving organs?
TLDR
The message for critical care practitioners is that despite the theoretical potential to worsen ischemic organ injury, the provision of CPR does not necessarily preclude organ donation or impair transplant graft function, and should encourage clinicians to attempt CPR with the goal of preserving the opportunity for organ donation. Expand
Impact of donor cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the outcome of simultaneous pancreas–kidney transplantation—a retrospective study
TLDR
It is indicated that post‐CPR brain‐dead donors are suitable for PT without increasing the risk of complications, and no statistically significant association between donor CPR and patient or graft survival is suggested. Expand
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Maneuvers in the Organ and Tissue Donor Patient
TLDR
The scientific evidence postulates mainly a benefit of the cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers in the donor patient, without involvement in the organs because it increases their Blood perfusion and their oxygenation. Expand
Cardio‐pulmonary resuscitation of brain‐dead organ donors: a literature review and suggestions for practice
TLDR
It is concluded that OP‐CPR can benefit patients and families by fulfilling the wish to donate, however, it is an aggressive procedure that can cause physical damage to patients, and risks psychological harm to families and healthcare professionals. Expand
The rate of brain death and organ donation in patients resuscitated from cardiac arrest: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
In patients with hypoxic-ischaemic brain injury following CPR, more than 10% of deaths were due to brain death, and more than 40 % of brain-dead patients could donate organs, suggesting patients who are unconscious after resuscitation from cardiac arrest, especially when resuscitated using e-CPR, should be carefully screened for signs of brain death. Expand
Brain-Dead Donors on Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation*
TLDR
Brain-dead patients with ongoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation are suitable for organ procurement, and they have more severe medical conditions than those without extracorporation, according to a retrospective analysis of the national information system. Expand
Treating the donor
TLDR
Care of patients with catastrophic brain injury incorporating supportive therapy targeted at specific goals and delivered by experienced specialists provides the best donation outcomes and pathways represent best practice critical care applied to this population. Expand
A simplified preservation method for lungs donated after cardiac death.
TLDR
A simplified technique for DCD lung cooling results in a higher preservation temperature but does not affect lung function during EVLP, which implies that this less invasive method can be used in the uncontrolled DCD setting. Expand
Rates of organ donation in a UK tertiary cardiac arrest centre following out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.
TLDR
A proactive, systematic approach to OD in OHCA patients can provide a good conversion rate and substantial number of donors, with nearly £4m in savings to the health service within the next 5 years potentially being realised during this period by liberating patients from dialysis. Expand

Utilization of Donors Who have Suffered Cardiopulmonary Arrest and Resuscitation in Intestinal Transplantation
TLDR
A donor history of cardiac arrest should not automatically exclude the use of the intestine graft for transplantation, and outcome parameters such as operative time, blood use, ventilation days, length of stay, time to enteral independence, rejection, enteric bacteremia, and survival are not significant.

TLDR
It is indicated that transplantation of lungs from resuscitated donors may not affect outcome after LuTX, and donor history of CA should not automatically preclude LuTX. Expand
Cardiac arrest in the organ donor does not negatively influence recipient survival after heart transplantation.

TLDR
With careful case selection, there was no evidence that survival after cardiac transplantation was worse following a period of cardiac arrest in the organ donor, and a history of cardiac arrests should not exclude an organ from being considered for transplantation. Expand
Can we accept donors who have suffered a resuscitated cardiac arrest?
TLDR
Patients receiving a heart from a patient with an in-hospital RCA and subsequent hemodynamic stability have a similar outcomes to other HT patients, according to a comparison of complications in the postoperative and follow-up periods. Expand

  • 2011
TLDR
It is shown that brief and reversible cardiac arrest in organ donors does not affect post‐LT allograft survival and function, even though liver function test values are higher for these donors. Expand
Transplantation of hearts after arrest and resuscitation. Early and long-term results.
TLDR
The results suggest that hearts undergoing cardiopulmonary resuscitation for periods of up to 60 minutes can be used safely without evidence of deterioration of early or late cardiac function. Expand
Donors with cardiac arrest: improved organ recovery but no preconditioning benefit in liver allografts
TLDR
Compared with historical data, cardiovascular stability and abdominal organ recovery rates have improved considerably in CA donors, and posttransplantation graft function and injury parameters were similar between the two groups, and CA did not appear to trigger IP. Expand
Pediatric transplantation using hearts refused on the basis of donor quality.
TLDR
Despite longer distance recovery and longer graft cold ischemic times, outcomes of pediatric heart transplantation using donor heart grafts refused on the basis of organ quality are highly competitive. Expand
An underrecognized source of organ donors: patients with brain death after successfully resuscitated cardiac arrest
TLDR
Brain death may occur in about one-sixth of patients after successfully resuscitated out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, creating opportunities for organ donation. Expand
Influence of donor cardiopulmonary arrest in human liver transplantation: Possible role of ischemic preconditioning
TLDR
Although the liver function tests are elevated in an organ donor, the hepatic allograft is suitable for OLT if the liver damage is induced by brief donor cardiopulmonary arrest, and Experiences of brief cardiopULmonary arrest in organ donors did not affect post‐OLT hepaticAllograft survival and function.
