Objectives:

  • Understand Truog's argument that the scientific evidence does not support the view that brain-dead donors are dead at the time they are declared dead for organ donation
  • understand the Dead-Donor Rule (DDR) and its implications for procurement of organs from patients diagnosed as brain dead
  • express an opinion about what we should do about this challenging problem: should we muddle forward despite the inconsistencies or consider alternatives to the DDR?
