Our ethical and legal foundations governing organ transplantation stand upon two established standards for determining death – circulatory death through the irreversible loss of circulatory function, and brain death following the irreversible loss of neurological function.

In this lecture, Dr Robert Truog will contest that both these standards suffer from fatal conceptual flaws. Join us to dissect this challenging ethical debate and discover possible solutions to the associated pitfalls.
