Abstract

This article describes the results of an interview study on the ethical issues related to treating cardiac arrest in potential organ donors in Denmark. The medical background and the Danish guidelines relevant to the issue are described. The results from the interview study are then summarized and analyzed from an ethical perspective in order to clarify the ethical issues and value conflicts experienced by health personnel in this situation. It is recommended that the ethical components in the decision-making process and the dilemmatic nature of the situation are made transparent.
