Best Answer

To become an organ donor, register with your state donor registry, and indicate that you wish to be a donor on your driver's license. Talk with your family and let them know why donating your organs is important to you. They may be asked to sign a consent form after your death so your organs can be donated.

You have to be a suitable match, including a compatible blood type, compatible tissue type (for kidneys), same size (or bigger), in good health, and not motivated by financial gain. And over 18 years old. And willing. (Criteria depends on country - that's for the UK).

Find out your blood group - your GP/family doctor can usually tell you. If that comes back as you 'might be suitable' (you either need to be the same as the recipient, or a universal blood group), talk to the person who you want to donate to. They should ask their consultant to find out if you are a suitable match. The screening is quite prolonged - EEG's, ECG's, blood tests, psychological assessment. Possibly an MRI as well... It's actually not as easy as saying "i want to be an organ donor". But it's worthwhile.

18 years old or older, healthy (i.e no hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, CJd, healthy weight, able to survive without the organ (if being a living donor)), willing, not motivated for financial gains (or otherwise), correct size, blood group, correct tissue type (if donating a kidney). If you mean cadaveric organ donor, you pretty much have to die in a hospital, on life support, of a head injury.

When a deceased organ donor is identified, a transplant coordinator from an organ procurement organization enters the donor's data in the UNOS computer. The computer then generates a list of potential recipients.

Why should organ donors be tested?

Because the donor might be suffering from a medical condition which would render the organ useless to the recipient, or which would infect the recipient with a disease which would cause illness or rejection of the organ. Transplant patients are at high risk of infection and other complications even with the best possible precautions and organ transplant is a delicate, lengthy and costly procedure; there is no point performing such a procedure if the donor organ might carry with it a health risk which could negate the entire process.
