The Impact Of An Effective OPO DCD Practice On Donation and Transplantation RatesJM Edwards, G O’Shaughnessy, S Demczyszyn, R Hasz, HM Nathan Presented by: Gweneth O’Shaughnessy, BS Gift of Life Donor Program Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Gift of Life Donor ProgramPhiladelphia, Pennsylvania USA • Non-Profit Organization • Established in 1974 • Federally designated OPO (by Medicare) for eastern PA, Southern NJ & Delaware - 134 Acute Care Hospitals - 15 Transplant Centers, 43 Programs - 10.3 Million Population Gift of Life Donor Program Office (Philadelphia, PA) • 2011* Projected Data: - 440 Organ Donors / 42.7 Donors/MM - 1,236 Bone Donors and 2,551 Cornea Donors • Over 31,000 organs for transplantation and over 375,000 tissue allografts • Accredited by: the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO); American Assoc. of Tissue Banks (AATB) & Eye Bank Team Philadelphia Transplant Recipient Athletes Competing Assoc. of America (EBAA); UNOS/OPTN at the 2010 U.S. Transplant Games in Madison, WI member OPO
Background:DCD is the foundation of modern clinical transplant.The IOM and SCCM have affirmed that it is amedically effective, ethically appropriate method ofprocuring organs. DCD provides an additional organdonation option if a patient is medically suitable butdoes not fulfill strict brain death criteria.Aim:To demonstrate how this OPO implemented aneffective DCD program and to illustrate the impacton donation and transplantation.
Materials and Methods: Considerations For OPO Personnel Educating Hospital Personnel • Utilize a broad referral trigger; Education evaluate all donation pathways ‒ Routine Referral ‒ Clinical Triggers DCD • DCD Policy (development and implementation)Policy Case • Comprehensive education (physicians, nurses, ER, ICU, OR, etc.)Orientation & Training Clinical Practice• Didactic & Simulated Learning • OPO on-site response• Weekly Clinical Case Reviews • Administrator On Call oversight• Skills Workshops • Donation and Communication• All Teach All Learn Pathways

Consult Gift of Life on all Vent-Dependent Patients w/a Non-Recoverable Neurologic Injury/Illness To preserve the organ donation option for patients/families, call 1-800-KIDNEY-1 according to the following criteria:(regardless of age, medical history, current hospital course, hemodynamic status) 1. At the first indication the patient has suffered a non-recoverable neuro injury/illness (pt. begins to lose some neuro reflexes) 2. Prior to the first formal brain death examination 3. Prior to family discussion of DNR or withdrawal of support 4. Patient has suffered: Head Trauma, Anoxia, CVA Call Gift of Life – 1-800-KIDNEY-1 (1-800-543-6391)In collaboration with the care team, Gift of Life will initiate the first mention of organ donation (after it has been determined that the patient is a medically suitable candidate for donation).
Materials and Methods Considerations For Hospital Personnel • No different referral trigger for DCD. A broad trigger is utilized to Education capture all ‘not brain dead’ referrals. • Brain dead donation pathway is priority DCD • Understand and support timing of donation discussionsPolicy Case • Separation of care team from transplant personnel • Withdrawal phase / contingency planning • Gift of Life – Care Team debriefings
Pathways For Organ Donation Vent Dependent Patient With Non-Recoverable Neurologic Injury/IllnessDonation After Donation After Brain Death Neuro Cardiac Death Exam • Exam Not c/w Brain Death• Exams c/w Brain Death • Care Team/Family Discuss Grave Prognosis and W/D of Medical• Pt Declared Dead in ICU Treatment/Support• Donation Discussion • Donation Discussion (OPO / Member of Care Team) (OPO / Member of Care Team)• Maintain Hemodynamics • Maintain Hemodynamics • Optimize End Organ Function• Optimize End Organ Function • Move To OR for W/D Phase• Operative Phase • W/D Care/Comfort c/w Hospital Practice • Pt Declared Dead in OR• Surgical Recovery of Organs • Surgical Recovery of Organs
Five Scenarios That Trigger A Donation Discussion Family Mentions Donation. Donation Mentioned Brain Death Pronounced. Independent of Explained to the family. Gift of Life . Family understands. Patient and Family Decision To Pulmonary or Limit, Decelerate or W/D hemodynamic instability. Therapies.

Results: DCD Experience By Hospital Type 1995 – 2010 657 DCD Cases in 88 Hospitals • 14 Transplant Centers (362 cases – 54%) • 15 Trauma Centers** (138 cases – 21%) • 59 Community Hospitals (164 cases – 25%)* Source: Based upon GLDP data through December 31, 2010.** Trauma centers only-does not include transplant centers that are also trauma centers.
ConclusionThis OPO has demonstrated that aneffective DCD program increases the supply of transplantable organs.
