Criteria for organ donation

In all cases brain death must have been established and the consent of the next of kin and, where appropriate, the coroner must have been obtained. Blood samples should be obtained for screening for hepatitis and HIV, as well as blood group determination and tissue typing. The organs must be removed by a surgeon who has examined the donor and is satisfied with the diagnosis of brainstem death. The procedure must be performed under full operating conditions in theater. If there is any doubt, the local transplant co-ordinator should be contacted early for advice on donor/individual organ suitability.
