In such life threatening situation, you may realize the importance of organ donation. You can gift someone a new life by donating your vital body parts.
Why we should & who can donate tissues & organs?
Almost 1.5 lakh people in India need a kidney but only 3000 of them receive one.90% of people on the waiting list die without getting an organ. India's annual liver transplant requirement is 25,000, but we manage only about 800. The wait list for patients is growing all the time. Everyone is a potential organ and tissue donors after death. But cancer, HIV , infection (sepsis, for example) or Intravenous (IV) drug use will rule out donation.Patients who have Hepatitis C may donate organs to a patient who also has Hepatitis C. The same is true for Hepatitis B -but this happens in very rare cases. Most cancer patients may donate corneas.
For organ recipients, a transplant often means a second chance at life. Vital organs such as the heart, pancreas, liver, kidneys and lungs can be transplanted to those whose organs are failing. It allows many recipients to return to a normal lifestyle. For others, a cornea or tissue transplant means the ability to see again or the recovery of mobility and freedom from pain.
