"Can the Dead Donor Rule be Resuscitated?" That’s the title of an editorial in the August 2011 issue of The American Journal of Bioethics.Editorial, co-authored by David Magnus, PhD, Stanford University Center for Biomedical Ethics. Dr. Magnus provides input as to how donation after cardiac death may be a great good if done correctly. He recommends using the IOM standard of five minutes after declaration of death for procurement or organs, using a system of checks and a mandatory ethics consort, as well as sufficient consultation with the dying patient's family.
