Organ donation. 3. Brain stem death

Organ donation. 3. Brain stem death

British Journal of Perioperative Nursing 10(1): 24-29

Following an exploration of nurses' perceptions of organ donation, and of consent and patient's rights in the preceding articles, this series concludes with an examination of brain stem death, and in particular the literature which challenges popular assumptions about it. This makes challenging and sometimes disturbing reading, but as the author reminds us, these are issues which theatre nurses cannot ignore.
