Feasibility of finding an unrelated bone marrow donor on international registries for New Zealand patients. (1/1276)

Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation is the treatment of choice for several hematological conditions. Unfortunately, for the majority (70%) of patients an HLA-matched sibling donor is not available and a matched unrelated donor must be found if they are to proceed to allogeneic transplantation. Most of the donors on international registries are of Caucasian ethnic origin. It has been recognized that patients from certain racial groups have a reduced chance of finding an unrelated donor. This study reports the feasibility of finding an unrelated donor for our local New Zealand patients of Caucasian, New Zealand Maori and Pacific Islander ethnic origin presenting with transplantable hematological conditions at a single center. The search was performed on international registries using HLA-A,B and DR typings for our patients. Six of six and five of six matches were evaluated. We have shown that Maori and Pacific Islanders have significantly lower hit rates than Caucasians when searched for 6/6 antigen matches, but there was no significant difference between the three ethnic groups in finding a 5/6 antigen matched donor. This study supports the policy of the New Zealand Bone Marrow Donor Registry in recruiting New Zealand Maori and Pacific Islanders.  (+info)

Tissue donation after death in the accident and emergency department: an opportunity wasted? (2/1276)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether the accident and emergency department (A&E) is a potential source of tissues for donation, from non-heart beating donors (NHBDs). METHODS: A telephone survey of 30 A&E departments was conducted to determine current tissue harvesting practices from NHBDs. The potential number of tissue donors in our own medium sized district general hospital A&E department was estimated. Senior nursing staff were asked to complete a questionnaire to establish their knowledge, attitudes, and experience of tissue harvesting from NHBDs. RESULTS: Only seven of the 30 A&E departments surveyed (23%) had an active involvement in requesting tissue donation after a sudden death. Several others had limited experience. The level of involvement was unrelated to department size. In our own A&E department, there were 110 deaths in 1995. Tissue donation had occurred on just three occasions. However, departmental staff attitudes towards reducing this shortfall were positive. CONCLUSIONS: The A&E department is a resource of tissues for donation, which is currently under used.  (+info)

Cloning, killing, and identity. (3/1276)

One potentially valuable use of cloning is to provide a source of tissues or organs for transplantation. The most important objection to this use of cloning is that a human clone would be the sort of entity that it would be seriously wrong to kill. I argue that entities of the sort that you and I essentially are do not begin to exist until around the seventh month of fetal gestation. Therefore to kill a clone prior to that would not be to kill someone like you or me but would be only to prevent one of us from existing. And even after one of us begins to exist, the objections to killing it remain comparatively weak until its psychological capacities reach a certain level of maturation. These claims support the permissibility of killing a clone during the early stages of its development in order to use its organs for transplantation.  (+info)

Indigenous peoples and the morality of the Human Genome Diversity Project. (4/1276)

In addition to the aim of mapping and sequencing one human's genome, the Human Genome Project also intends to characterise the genetic diversity of the world's peoples. The Human Genome Diversity Project raises political, economic and ethical issues. These intersect clearly when the genomes under study are those of indigenous peoples who are already subject to serious economic, legal and/or social disadvantage and discrimination. The fact that some individuals associated with the project have made dismissive comments about indigenous peoples has confused rather than illuminated the deeper issues involved, as well as causing much antagonism among indigenous peoples. There are more serious ethical issues raised by the project for all geneticists, including those who are sympathetic to the problems of indigenous peoples. With particular attention to the history and attitudes of Australian indigenous peoples, we argue that the Human Genome Diversity Project can only proceed if those who further its objectives simultaneously: respect the cultural beliefs of indigenous peoples; publicly support the efforts of indigenous peoples to achieve respect and equality; express respect by a rigorous understanding of the meaning of equitable negotiation of consent, and ensure that both immediate and long term economic benefits from the research flow back to the groups taking part.  (+info)

Non-heart-beating organ donors as a source of kidneys for transplantation: a chart review. (5/1276)

BACKGROUND: Organ transplantation is the treatment of choice for patients with end-stage organ failure, but the supply of organs has not increased to meet demand. This study was undertaken to determine the potential for kidney donation from patients with irremediable brain injuries who do not meet the criteria for brain death and who experience cardiopulmonary arrest after withdrawal of ventilatory support (controlled non-heart-beating organ donors). METHODS: The charts of 209 patients who died during 1995 in the Emergency Department and the intensive care unit at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary were reviewed. The records of patients who met the criteria for controlled non-heart-beating organ donation were studied in detail. The main outcome measure was the time from discontinuation of ventilation until cardiopulmonary arrest. RESULTS: Seventeen potential controlled non-heart-beating organ donors were identified. Their mean age was 62 (standard deviation 19) years. Twelve of the patients (71%) had had a cerebrovascular accident, and more than half (10 [59%]) did not meet the criteria for brain death because one or more brain stem reflexes were present. At the time of withdrawal of ventilatory support, the mean serum creatinine level was 71 (29) mumol/L, mean urine output was 214 (178) mL/h, and 9 (53%) patients were receiving inotropic agents. The mean time from withdrawal of ventilatory support to cardiac arrest was 2.3 (5.0) hours; 13 of the 17 patients died within 1 hour, and all but one died within 6 hours. For the year for which charts were reviewed, 33 potential conventional donors (people whose hearts were beating) were identified, of whom 21 (64%) became donors. On the assumption that 40% of the potential controlled non-heart-beating donors would not in fact have been donors (25% because of family refusal and 15% because of nonviability of the organs), there might have been 10 additional donors, which would have increased the supply of cadaveric kidneys for transplantation by 48%. INTERPRETATION: A significant number of viable kidneys could be retrieved and transplanted if eligibility for kidney donation was extended to include controlled non-heart-beating organ donors.  (+info)

The ambiguity about death in Japan: an ethical implication for organ procurement. (6/1276)

In the latter half of the twentieth century, developed countries of the world have made tremendous strides in organ donation and transplantation. However, in this area of medicine, Japan has been slow to follow. Japanese ethics, deeply rooted in religion and tradition, have affected their outlook on life and death. Because the Japanese have only recently started to acknowledge the concept of brain death, transplantation of major organs has been hindered in that country. Currently, there is a dual definition of death in Japan, intended to satisfy both sides of the issue. This interesting paradox, which still stands to be fully resolved, illustrates the contentious conflict between medical ethics and medical progress in Japan.  (+info)

Supplying commercial biomedical companies from a human tissue bank in an NHS hospital--a view from personal experience. (7/1276)

NHS histopathology laboratories are well placed to develop banks of surgically removed surplus human tissues to meet the increasing demands of commercial biomedical companies. The ultimate aim could be national network of non-profit making NHS tissue banks conforming to national minimum ethical, legal, and quality standards which could be monitored by local research ethics committees. The Nuffield report on bioethics provides ethical and legal guidance but we believe that the patient should be fully informed and the consent given explicit. Setting up a tissue bank requires enthusiasm, hard work, and determination as well as coordination between professionals in the NHS trust and in the commercial sector. The rewards are exiting new collaborations with commercial biomedical companies which could help secure our future.  (+info)

Bioethics regulations in Turkey. (8/1276)

Although modern technical and scientific developments in medicine are followed closely in Turkey, it cannot be claimed that the same is true in the field of bioethics. Yet, more and more attention is now being paid to bioethics and ethics training in health sciences. In addition, there are also legal regulations in bioethics, some of which are not so new. The objective of these regulations is to provide technical and administrative control. Ethical concerns are rather few. What attracts our attention most in these regulations is the presence of the idea of "consent".  (+info)

Failure of health care professionals to identify potential donors is considered an important contributing factor to the shortage of deceased organs,11 15 and accounted for 14% of our potential organ donor loss. Education directed at doctors and nurses to increase their awareness of possible organ donors is crucial to the success of an organ donation programme. Identification of a possible deceased organ donor should be inherently linked to the act of referral to a key donation person/team for activation of the deceased donation process.11 Similar to other hospitals in Hong Kong, all possible brain-dead donors at our centre, regardless of apparent medical contra-indications, are referred to our ODC as soon as they are identified. Referral usually occurs early when the clinical condition reveals death to be imminent or that further treatment will be futile. The possible deceased organ donors can then be assessed and managed by the ODC immediately as all the ODCs in our territory have a centralised ...
OBJECTIVE: New Zealands organ donation rates are among the lowest in the OECD. In a bid to increase organ availability, the New Zealand Human Tissue Act 2008 introduces new consent arrangements for deceased donor organ procurement. This article assesses these new arrangements and presents the case for further reform. APPROACH: Our assessment and arguments are based on philosophical analysis informed by empirical data on the effectiveness of alternative consent systems. We: 1) Identify widely held ethical judgments about policies and practices relevant to organ donation (e.g. those relating to coronial post-mortems), 2) Assess the implications of these judgments for the Human Tissue Act and the assumptions that underpin it, and 3) Derive policy recommendations that are consistent with the judgments. CONCLUSION: The Human Tissue Act 2008 retains a strong consent requirement for organ procurement: organs may not be transplanted unless either the deceased or the family consents. We argue that organ
In the U.S., UK and in many other countries, the gap between the demand and the supply of human organs for transplantation is on the rise, despite the efforts of governments and health agencies to promote donor registration. In some countries of continental Europe, however, cadaveric organ procurement is based on the principle of presumed consent. Under presumed consent legislation, a deceased individual is classified as a potential donor in absence of explicit opposition to donation before death. Abadie and Gaye analyzed the impact of presumed consent laws on donation rates. For this purpose, they construct a dataset on organ donation rates and potential factors affecting organ donation for 22 countries over a 10-year period. They find that while differences in other determinants of organ donation explain much of the variation in donation rates, after controlling for those determinants presumed consent legislation has a positive and sizeable effect on organ donation rates ...
You dont have to be in perfect health to donate an organ. The living donor coordinator and medical director will do a complete health history. This makes sure youre healthy enough for living donation.. Living organ donation can be risky for both the donor and the recipient. Removing an organ, or a part of an organ, from your body involves major surgery. There is always the risk of complications from surgery, such as pain, infection, pneumonia, bleeding, and even death. After the surgery you may face changes in your body from having removed one of your organs.. Living organ donation can be costly. Your medical expenses related to the transplant surgery will be paid for by your or the recipients provincial health plan. But also think of your costs in terms of lost wages, child care, and possible medical problems in the future. Check with your insurance provider for more information about coverage.. Living organ donation is rewarding. After a successful transplant, most donors feel a special ...
Most South Africans die without their organs being harvested for transplantation. In a country where motor vehicle accidents or violent crime are often the cause of death, presumably leaving most of the organs fit for transplantation, it is astounding that the offer of organs doesnt meet the demand. The aim of this dissertation is to find a practical solution for the current shortage of transplantable human organs in South Africa. This is achieved by critically discussing current South African legislation regulating organ transplantation, considering alternative organ procurement methods, as well as the impact that bioethics and the Constitution might have on the success of an organ procurement system. This dissertation is concluded with the realisation that although the current organ procurement method needs to be changed to required request, relieving the organ shortage will only be achieved by combining several proposed legislative changes, including, but not limited to, creating a national ...
The Human Tissue Act 2004 (the HT Act) makes it an offence to give or receive a reward for the supply or offer of human material for transplantation.. It is unlawful for donors to be paid or rewarded for donating an organ or part organ. Reward, in the context of the HT Act, is a financial or material advantage which induces a person to become a living donor. In practice, reward means any money, gift or other benefit with a financial value, which influences the decision to donate an organ.. The Human Tissue Authoritys (HTA) role in living organ donation is to ensure that there has been no reward sought or offered for a living organ donation and to provide an independent check to help protect the interests of living organ donors.. This is achieved through an independent assessment interview process with both the donor and recipient (separately and together). We ensure that each individual donor has an opportunity to speak freely to someone not connected with the transplant centre in order to ...

When an individual does not have a living donor but is an acceptable transplant candidate, he/she will be placed on a waiting list. In 1984, Congress passed the National Organ Transplant Act. This act prohibited the sale of human organs and mandated a national Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) to oversee organ recovery and placement and equitable organ distribution policies. The United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) is an independent, non-profit organization. It was awarded the national OPTN contract in 1986. It is the only organization ever to operate the OPTN.. Organ Procurement Organizations (OPO) are non-profit agencies operating in designated service areas covering whole states or just parts of a state. OPOs are responsible for: approaching families about the option of donation, evaluating suitability of potential donors, coordinating the recovery and transportation of donated organs and educating the public about the need for organ donation.. Most deceased donor ...

Streamline organ donation and transplantation Kochi: Noting that Indias organ donation rate is among the lowest in the world, experts have called for coordinated efforts of the countrys health sector to streamline organ donation and transplantation. A three-day international conference on Organ Donation and Transplantation, organised by the Society for Heart failure and Transplantation (SfHFT), concluded here on Tuesday. Dr. Vasanthi Ramesh, Director, National Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation (NOTTO), said India, despite having the largest population, has very less public participation in organ donation. The ratio is still less than one in ten lakh population. Coordinated efforts of health sector and best clinical protocols are needed to streamline organ donation and transplantation.
NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) has launched its first paediatric and neonatal organ donation strategy aimed at increasing paediatric and neonatal deceased donation rates, especially for young patients who often need organs matched to their size.. The strategy identifies eight areas of focus to increase organ donation among under 18s, with a series of recommendations for each area. The recommendations include increased support for families throughout the donation process, more dedicated training and support for clinical staff caring for paediatric patients, and the development of new screening and assessment processes.. The Nuffield Council welcomes this strategy, particularly the recognition of the need for skilled support for families during such a difficult time. In 2011, we published a report, Human bodies: donation for medicine and research, the culmination of a two-year inquiry, in which we examined the ethical and social issues arising from organ donation. In the report, we recognised ...
Purpose: Liver transplant (LT) recipients who develop persistent renal dysfunction face increased morbidity and mortality. These patients may be eligible for prioritization on the kidney transplant (KT) waitlist based on the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) safety net policy implemented on August 10, 2017. In this study, we evaluated utilization of KT, as well as waitlist and post-transplant outcomes, of LT recipients with renal dysfunction before and after the implementation of this policy.. *Methods: The United Network for Organ Sharing database from January 2015 to March 2019 was used to evaluate LT recipients who were subsequently placed on the KT waitlist between 60 to 365 days after LT. Characteristics and outcomes of patients on the KT waitlist and the subset who received KT were compared between time periods prior to and after August 10, 2017.. *Results: 119 patients were included in the analysis. The number of LT patients placed on the kidney waitlist increased ...
Organ Donation essay is usually given to classes 7, 8, 9, and 10.. Organ donation is defined as the removal of organs from a body and transplanting it to a new body, by surgical means. Organ donation happens in a lot of ways. Unless it is consensual, it is not legal.. The requirement for new organs usually arises when a person loses an organ to some accident or stops functioning. For example, patients with acute liver cirrhosis may require a liver transplant. A liver transplant is usually done by removing a small part of the liver from a healthy persons body and transplanting it.. Likewise, organs like the retina of the eye, and kidneys can be donated. These organs remain functional for a few hours after removing them from the patients body. In the case of a heart transplant, it must be done immediately after removing it from the dead persons body. However, a heart transplant can be done only when the donor is declared brain dead by doctors.. Organ transplant dramatically depends on the ...
The number of persons on the national solid organ waiting list continues to increase while the number of donated organs has failed to keep pace. In some portions of northeastern Ohio the donation rate is as low as 32%. There is a positive association between discussing organ donation with a primary care physician and signing a donor card. However, such discussions are rare. The investigators propose a blinded randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effectiveness of two interventions: 1) showing a donation video to patients in primary care settings waiting to see their physician and 2) cueing of primary care providers to have donation discussions with their patients. The study will be conducted throughout Cuyahoga County in at least 10 ambulatory clinics associated with a single county medical system. Nine hundred patients over 15.5 years of age will be enrolled. The investigators hypothesize that patients exposed to the interventions will be 1) more likely to consent to donate organs, 2) ...

1 Introduction. The aim of this article is to determine the influence that the Constitution has on the law pertaining to organ transplants, with specific reference to organ procurement methods.1 Whenever the demand for a particular resource is higher than the offer, there is a risk of a black market forming to compensate for the shortage.2 This is indeed the case when it comes to transplantable human organs. The organ shortage is by no means a new problem. Academics have been looking for a solution to this global problem since 1980.3 In the light of this, the authors find it intriguing that this problem still exists around the world and more specifically, in South Africa. According to the Organ Donor Foundation,4 the number of solid organ transplants has declined yearly from 376 in 2009 to 319 in 2012.5 Furthermore, the number of South Africans awaiting an organ transplant increased from 3 500 in 20096 to 4 300 in 2013.7 It has also been claimed that there are as many as 15 000 people in need of ...
Discussion. Over the last 11 years organ donation rates have increased in Irish PICUs. The reason for this is multifactorial. Allocation of resources to the ODTI have improved, specific education sessions on organ donation for staff now occur, consultant staffing in PICUs has improved and awareness of organ donation among consultants has increased and finally there is an increased awareness among the public of the need for organ donation and transplantation as a result of advocacy groups and the support of the media. Several organizations in Ireland have been active in the area of public awareness, especially the Irish Kidney Association. There is some evidence that discussion in the media may influence parental decisions to donate7.. In the 11-year period examined, 36 infants and children ranging in age from one day of life to 15 years of age donated organs and/or tissue heart valves for transplantation. This represents a donation rate of 2.9 per million population of children. In the US ...

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES. Knowledge on various aspects of organ donation was assessed, and students self-evaluated competence and confidence about counselling for organ donation was evaluated. Factors influencing attitudes and actions were determined. RESULTS. The response rate was 94% (655/694). A majority (85%) had a positive attitude, but only a small proportion (23%) had signed the organ donation card. Inconvenience and lack of knowledge about organ donor registration, and concerns about premature termination of medical treatment accounted for such discrepancies. Socio-cultural factors such as the traditional Chinese belief in preservation of an intact body after death, unease discussing death-related issues, and family objections to organ donation were significantly associated with a negative attitude. Knowledge and action increased with medical education yet only a small proportion of medical students felt competent and confident in counselling patients on organ donation ...

What kind of factors do families need to consider when contemplating consenting to donation on behalf of a loved one?. While the majority of Australians are supportive of organ and tissue donation, many do not realise that the opportunity to donate organs is actually quite rare, with around one per cent of people dying in hospital under the specific circumstances where organ donation is possible. Tissue and eye donation, however, can occur under most circumstances.. In Australia, the family will always be asked to confirm the donation decision of the deceased before donation for transplantation can proceed. It is for this reason that we strongly encourage people to discuss their donation decision with their loved ones now, to ensure they are aware of what you would or would not like to donate at the time of your death.. What are the pros and cons of becoming an organ donor?. Donation does not occur quickly - there are important tests that need to be done to ensure that the best possible outcomes ...
The UK Organ Failure and Transplant Network (OFTN) is a relationship-based program developed to provide definitive care for patients with advanced organ failure. We encourage physicians throughout Kentucky and surrounding states to refer patients with advanced kidney, heart, lung, liver and pancreatic disease for care when local options have been exhausted.
This study consists in an cluster-randomized clinical trial involving near 60 Brazilian intensive care units (ICUs) with a high notification rate of potential donors of organs and tissues. ICUs will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to manage potential organ donors through the use of a evidence-based checklist or to manage potential organ donors according usual care. The primary outcome is the rate of losses of potential donors due to cardiac arrest. Secondary outcome measures include number of effective organ donors and number of organs recovery per effective donor. The first subject was enrolled on June 20, 2018 ...
Dear Reader,. What an admirable friend you are to consider helping in this way. Not nearly enough organs are donated. Every day in the United States, 22 people on organ donation waiting lists die waiting for a way to prolong their lives. There are two ways to be an organ donor. More commonly, organs come from people who have expressed a wish to donate their organs after their death. These deceased donors notify their family and friends of their decision and register as an organ donor so that after they die, their organs can prolong the life of others. Kidneys can be donated, but hearts and heart valves, livers, lungs, pancreas, intestines, corneas, skin, hands, face, veins, cartilage, connective tissue, and bone marrow can all be donated as well. While the majority of organ and tissue donations come from deceased donors, living donations are also an alternative for some transplant needs. Keep reading for more details on how to become a living organ donor and whats involved in the living organ ...

I had every setback I possibly could, said Lyons of her failed first transplant. Finally, on June 30, 2014, I had a second transplant, but after that I had a blood clot and an incision hernia and needed emergency surgery. My daughters were in the room when the blood started to seep through my gown and my husband had to get them out before they saw what was happening.. She added that she still has hernias, but the doctors dont want to touch her since shes stable.. I got down to 90-pounds and had a feeding tube, she said. I had to heal from the inside out; it took about six-months.. Lyons said it took until this Easter for her to actually feel normal, although she gets tired easily.. Even with all her complications, Lyons considers herself lucky. She was able to be matched to a donated liver with the right blood-type and size. Thats where OPOs (Organ Procurement Organization) enters the picture.. By Federal law, nonprofit organ procurement organizations (OPOs) are the only ...
Organ procurement is the first step toward effective liver preservation and comprises a thorough washout of blood components from the microvasculature. To study the efficacy of optimal blood washout of the liver, three groups were compared including low-pressure perfusion with UW-CSS (12 mmHg, group A), which is the routine method in clinical practice, high-pressure perfusion with UW-CSS (100 mmHg, group B) and low-pressure perfusion with modified UW solution (12 mmHg, group C). After procurement all livers were preserved in original UW-CSS for 0, 24 or 48 h, followed by reperfusion in oxygenated Williams Medium E for 24 h at 37 degrees C. Histology results of livers procured in group A, showed good hepatocyte viability but also remaining erythrocytes. However, injury parameters were high and ATP concentrations were low. No functional differences were found. Group B, high pressure, and group C, modified UW-CSS, both showed better results. High-pressure washout is preferable since the warm ischemia time
CULTURAL change in the hospital system is the key to lifting Australias sub-optimal organ donation rates and not implementing an opt-out consent regime, according to transplant experts.. They say improving the way doctors interact with families in tragic circumstances would be more beneficial than a consent model that would have required Australians to opt out of organ donation. Proposals for an opt-out model have now been abandoned.. Australias Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA) was created in January 2009 to lift access to organ transplantation in Australia. However, Australia still had a major problem in providing organ transplantation to its citizens, according to an editorial in the latest MJA. (1) We must have an effective and sustained improvement in organ donation rates to bring Australia in line with countries in North America and Europe that are able to provide transplantation to two to three times as many patients as we do, wrote Associate Professor Simone Strasser, a ...

Background: Among the various options of renal replacement therapy (RRT), preemptive transplantation (pTx) is the modality of choice in children. The objective of this study was to examine racial and ethnic disparities in access to pTx and assess the effect of the new Kidney Allocation System (KAS) on these disparities in children and young adults with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).. Methods: A retrospective cross-sectional study of patients 0-20 years, using United States Renal Data System from 10/1/2005-06/1/2016 was done. We examined the odds of receiving pTx for black and Hispanic vs. white patients after adjusting for age, sex, socioeconomic status (SES), Organ Procurement Organization region and access to pre-ESRD nephrology care. We assessed the evolution of the odds of pTx pre-KAS (before December 4, 2014) and after introduction of KAS (on or after December 2014) using logistic regression.. Results: Among 13,199 patients initiating RRT, 45% were white, 26% black, and 29% Hispanic. There ...
New York, NY (October 30, 2002) - The National Kidney Foundations National Donor Family Council (NDFC) celebrates its tenth anniversary as the home for donor families this fall. Created in 1992 to support and empower donor families, the Council has made donor families a vital part of the organ donation and transplantation team. With more than 10,000 members, its the largest organized group of donor families in the world, says Ellen Kulik, chair of the NDFC.
Most families want to honour their loved ones known donation wishes. A one-in-three veto rate suggests families are encountering barriers to organ donation in the hospital.

UCSF study finds transplant wait-list deaths are not just due to organ availability Most liver transplant candidates who died or were removed from the transplant list actually received one or more liver donation offers, according to a recent UCSF study.. What we found challenges the simplistic view that transplant dynamics are driven simply by organ availability, said lead author, Jennifer Lai, MD, assistant clinical professor in the UCSF Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Efforts to reduce wait-list mortality must target all aspects of mismatch between supply and demand.. The research team analyzed data from 33,389 candidates listed in the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS)/Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN) registry during the time frame of Feb. 1, 2005 to Jan. 31, 2010. Out of the candidates who had died or been delisted, 84 percent received one or more liver offers prior to death/delisting, indicating that they had an opportunity to undergo ...
Authors: William Isdale & Julian Savulescu An edited version of this post was published by The Conversation Last week the Federal Government announced that there would be a review of Australias tissue and organ transplantation systems. The impetus for the review appears to be continually disappointing donation rates,
I have to say that the decision didnt come as too much of a surprise to me as I had been getting the vibes for some time that the taskforce was unlikely to come out in favour of legislative change. I dont believe its a huge blow however and I think that much more important steps are being taken to improve donation and transplant rates thanks to the governments acceptance in full of the task forces recommendations that came out in January. Thess aim to increase organ donation rates by 50% over the next 5 years and is based on the success of the Spanish system of organ donation. Contrary to what the media may be saying, Spain has the highest donor rates in the world because of its system not because of its presumed consent laws (and this is backed up by the man who set up their system ...
In 2006, a new law created the Donate Life Registry: a registry that records a persons own legal consent to organ, tissue and eye donation upon his or her death. If you are signed up in this new registry, your family will be informed of your decision and given information about the donation process, but their consent is not required to proceed with donation.. Do I have to tell my family about my decision to donate?. It is strongly encouraged that you inform your family of your decision to donate. This may help when we tell your family of your decision.. How does the donation process begin?. Hospitals are required to alert their federally designated organ procurement organization of all deaths. If you die outside of the hospital, your wish to donate may still be honored only if your family immediately notifies the coroner or funeral home.. If I join the Donate Life Registry, will medical care be compromised?. No. Donation is only an option after all efforts to save the patient have failed and ...
STA maintains an agreement to act as the organ recovery agency with hospitals in our respective areas. There are 11 transplant centers and more than 200 hospitals that we work with in our service area.. When a potential donor is identified by one of these hospitals, the local recovery agency is notified. A Transplant Coordinator, in conjunction with a Family Care Coordinator, immediately begins facilitating the donation process and assesses the statewide registry to establish if the potential donor has signed up to be an organ/tissue donor. If the potential donor is on the registry, the family is notified and the donation process proceeds. If the potential donor has not signed up on the registry, the Family Care Coordinator supports the donor family and consults them regarding possible donation.. The recovery agency then evaluates the medical suitability of the donor, manages the medical care of the donor until transplantation can take place, and taps into a national database to identify ...

OBJECTIVES: Romania ranks near the bottom of the European hierarchy of posthumous organ donation rates. Objectives of this study were as follows: (1) to assess the willingness to donate (WTD) a family members organs in the inhabitants of a large Romanian city (Iasi) and to analyze its factors; and (2) to determine the most important behaviors of the medical staff for our respondents in a hypothetical donation decision scenario.. METHODS: The study included a representative sample of the Iasi population. The instrument addressed WTD a family members organs, both in general and in the particular situation of knowing that the deceased had a positive attitude toward organ donation, knowledge of transplantation-related issues, endorsement of beliefs concerning organ donation, and the importance of a set of medical staffs behaviors.. RESULTS: The questionnaire was completed by 1,034 participants, 48% (n = 496) of whom would most likely consent to donate a family members organs, 18% (n = 191) would ...

The Organ Donation Taskforce recommended that potential organ donors should be identified in the ED and embedded specialist nurses employed to facilitate organ donation from these donors.1. The process of organ donation has traditionally been seen as the remit of the critical care complex and neurosurgical intensive care unit as the majority of organs were donated by patients deemed brainstem dead on formal neurological testing (heart beating donors now classified as donor after brain death; DBD). However, the use of kidneys from non-heart-beating donors (now classified as donor after cardiac death; DCD) has increased from 3% in 2000 to 34% by September 2010.7. Moreover, recent research suggests that recipient outcome after transplantation of kidneys from DCD is good compared with kidneys donated by DBD, although further studies are indicated.8 9. To date, no formal brainstem testing of potential donors is undertaken in our ED, mainly due to the fact that many intubated ED patients have been ...

Montréal, April 22, 2013 - In Québec, 90% of the population claims to support organ and tissue donation, yet only 50% of people indicate their consent. Meanwhile, thousands of people waiting for transplants suffer or die as a result of a shortage of donors. For this reason, during National Organ and Tissue Donation Week, Héma-Québec reiterates the importance of signing the organ and tissue donation consent form and informing your loved ones about your decision.. Over the next five weeks, Héma-Québec will disseminate poignant testimonials from recipients and physicians on its Facebook page and its Web site. These vignettes, produced in partnership with Transplant Québec, the Régie de lassurance maladie du Québec and the ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux, will also be used in an advertising campaign on the Web. These testimonials are intended to provide living proof that donating organs and tissues significantly improves the quality of life of those who are ill. They are ...

May 25, 2016 - The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) strongly supports removing barriers to living organ donation, and believes that all expenses related to the donation should be covered so that neither the organ donor, nor the organ recipient, bears any financial costs. While we appreciate Representative Cartwright (D-PA) for his efforts to increase organ donation, NKF is opposed to two provisions in The Organ Donation Clarification Act of 2016:
