In the autumn of 2021, the method for organ donation called cDCD (controlled donation after circulatory death) was approved in Norway after a long and thorough process. In this process, critical questions were asked although the method is already established in many other countries. In order to maintain good trust in the health care system, we want to address this questions surrounding organ donation after cardiac arrest, and provide some insights into how cDCD is performed in practice: How is the dying patient and relatives taken into account? What exactly is cDCD?
