Table 2 Vasoactive drugs and hormonal therapy in brain death donors–proposed regimen

Norepinephrine (mcg/kg/min)≤ 0.2 mcg/kg/min, if higher dosage needed add vasopressinIn potential heart donors, the lowest dosage is preferable
Vasopressin (U/h)Up to 2.5 U/h
Hormonal replacement therapy
Idrocorticosteroid100 mg bolus, 200 mg/24 h infusion
T34 mcg intravenous bolus, followed by infusion of 3 mcg per hourT3 could be preferred since it is immediately available to tissues
Desmopressin (DDVAP)4 mcg intravenous bolus eventually repeat every 6 to 8 h as needed
