1.2. Physical evaluation of cadaveric donors

1. The evaluation of the cadaveric donor should include a physical examination to detect signs:

a)              that are in themselves sufficient to the exclude the donor; or

b)             that may be an indication for further investigations; or

c)              are a contraindication for donation, when assessed in light of the donor’s medical and social history.

2. The physical examination has to be performed by trained personnel, in a working area with sufficient light, and under the condition that the entire body surface is easy accessible for examination by the retrieval staff.

3. A written report on the findings during the physical examination should minimally consist of a check list of specific signs that have to be look for. Findings should also be drawn on a diagram of the body.

4. An example is given of a list of signs and their associated contraindications that indicate a (potential) cause for rejection of the donor for donation.
