The current state of organ procurement and the ethical issues raised by the procurement process are reviewed in this article. After an examination of the legislative framework governing organ procurement, the intensivist's role in donation is discussed, including (1) donor identification, (2) asking the family to donate, and (3) obtaining consent. Recent proposals for changing the organ procurement system are analyzed, including increasing family donation or increasing the donor pool.
