Who delivers donated organs? - Page 2Register Today!
- Sep 26, '11 by DaughteroftheKingOooh I just had my last day of orientation this weekend & got to see a organ harvesting surgery- it was so awesome!! Anyways, this topic was brought up by some of the docs- we had the heart team fly in via private jet, and the other teams say they usually go via ambulance with lights, and sometimes the donor services company drives (fast).

They travel in copters, ground support and yes even a cab depending on the weather. Usually our life support air/ground transport picked him and the harvested organ up. If they were all away on calls, we've once had security drive to the airport to pick him up.
