Use of Marginal Organs and Decreased Cold Time

Tuesday, June 16, 2020, at 2:00pm – 3:00pm EDT / 11:00am – 12:00pm PDT

Purpose / Goal

The Alliance Virtual Town hall series is established to highlight successful OPO and Transplant program relationships and the resulting donation and transplant outcomes, sharing model elements from which others may emulate successful practices.

In order to use marginal organs, we will discuss organizational structure required of transplant programs to permit the rapid evaluations of donors with appropriate recipient selection. Having an adequate infrastructure should allow for the utilization of rapid, unplanned, short notice transplants.

Learning Objectives

Key Objectives:

  • Increased utilization of marginal organs by not coding out on donor until all information is available.
  • Develop an internal system to allow rapid evaluations of potential recipients.
  • Assess Facility/ Program’s infrastructure ability to handle marginal organ cases in a timely manner.
