Organ Transplant: Cold Ischemia Times

Donation following cardiac death:

– Liver 8-10 hours

– Kidney 24 hours

– Pancreas 12-18 hours

– Heart 4 hours

– Lungs 4-6 hours

– Intestine 6-12 hours

Longer ischemic times is highly correlated with increased rate of primary nonfunction and associated with delayed graft function.
