CPR requiring donors, utilized and identified in the UNOS database tended to be younger and had a mean CPR time of 20 minutes. Despite resucitation times, use of carefully selected donors requiring CPR did not impact recipient outcomes including patient and graft survival.

This article explores the concept of extended donor usage, discusses implications and management of donor coronary artery […]
