How are donor organs matched to recipients?

Sophie Cowden asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hello,

I was wondering when you are doing a organ transplant , how do find out if the new organ you are replacing the old one with will be a match to the persons body?  How do know if the body will reject it?  How do you preserve organs from a dead person because dont organs need oxygen before a transplant?

Thanks,

Sophie Cowden

What do you think?
