Donor lung assessment has evolved significantly as experience grows in the field of cardiopulmonary transplantation and organ donors are more actively managed with consideration of their pulmonary function. This chapter evaluates the current criteria employed in many centers evaluating traditional assessments of oxygenation and ventilation to avoid early graft dysfunction secondary to ischemia-reperfusion injury using modern ventilator and preservation fluids and techniques.

Keywords: Expanded Criteria Lung Donors, Donor-Recipient Matching, Lung Donation Standard Criteria, Lung Transplantation- Primary Graft Dysfunction.
