Meaning of D.O.A


I’d like to know if “D.O.A” means Dead Or Alive or Dead On Arrival :? is there another meaning of D.O.A??? i really have doubts about that. can u help me please???

DOA means “dead on arrival”. The person is already dead when he arrives at the hospital.

Sometimes on American police shows you hear detectives calling any dead person they find a DOA.
