Title: Organ procurement 1999-2000: how is Hawaii doing?
Authors: Higashigawa, K H

Abstract: With the advent of The Final Rule, the state of Hawaii should have potential organ donor identification and referral rates of 100%. However, a retrospective chart review of 4,697 deaths in 1999 and 4,730 deaths in 2000, revealed identification rates of 80% and 84%, and referral rates of 53% and 71%, respectively. Proper recognition and referral of all potential donors is essential to bridging the enormous gap between the supply of organs and its demand.
