    ​Does anyone know for certainty what the correct disposition of the patient, that has experienced cardiac death and is still alive when transferred to Organ Donation services alive with the expectation of death.  It seems wrong to disposition them alive.  Would love insight.

    We would have the patient as dead based on cardiac death.

    ​Thanks Karla . I assume the same for brain death as well.
