This chapter examines the effect of brain death physiology on potentially recoverable organs and provides specific management recommendations for the care of the multi-organ donor. We also review the logistic considerations important for successful procurement. The goal of these aims is to optimize function and maximize recovery of life-saving organs.

Keywords: Multi-Organ Donor, Organ Procurement, Transplant Logistic Considerations.
