Organ Transplant: Cold Ischemia Times

Advanced, Special Problems or Issues in Anesthesiology

Donation following cardiac death:

- Liver 8-10 hours

- Kidney 24 hours

- Pancreas 12-18 hours

- Heart 4 hours

- Lungs 4-6 hours

- Intestine 6-12 hours

Longer ischemic times is highly correlated with increased rate of primary nonfunction and associated with delayed graft function.
