The process of declaring brain death and then donating organs is one that is very interesting to many nurses (including myself).  How exactly is brain death declared?  How does the process of donating organs work? I interviewed Tony Hume, a nurse from New Mexico, who has a great deal of experience with these situations to help answer these questions.

Organ donation is always a debated topic.  Have you cared for an organ recipient or donor?  I have taken care of an organ donor who did not even know the person that he was donating his kidney to! There are many people willing to donate, so why are people still dying on the donor list?
