British NHS Proposes Plan To Organ Harvest Brain Dead Patients

The 19 million people on the Organ Donation Register could also be given preference in the event of needing an organ, over those who are not.

NHSBT is canvassing views from health professionals and the public on these and other ideas in the online survey, which closes on September 21. If put into practice they would represent large-scale changes to the way transplant is undertaken.

The survey asks whether doctors should be able to keep alive patients with catastrophic brain damage, for example due to head injury or stroke, who will not survive, solely for the purpose of organ donation.
Patients approaching death are often put on artificial ventilation for a short period to enable their relatives to say goodbye.
