Organ donation …. Continued from Part--7

 

Did You Know which are the organs you can donate and for which needs?

Many of us do not know which are the organs we can donate to any suffering person and make them feel comfortable? Donating eye is a well-known and on-going benevolence. But the medical science has not only invented and discovered many minute things in our body. Researches have brought out many startling revelations through which we can donate many organs as on date. More researches are going on to come to the perfection. But you can donate below named organs for those patients who cannot live (and a few of course can live but with many sufferings).

The organs are:

Bones, kidney, pancreas, liver, heart, lungs, skin, eyes and heart valve too,

Bones form the framework which is either semi rigid or rigid, which not only supports, but also give the form to our body. If bones can be donated, the people suffering from fractures, which are not healing or are cancerous or in some patients who need knee reconstructions because of spinal fusion surgery or torn ligaments.

The jobs of the Kidneys are to regulate the fluid and excrete the waste materials from our body. The patients whose kidneys have failed to function or those patients, who are suffering from renal failure, need kidney transplantation.

The job of Pancreas is to digest fats, proteins and starches. Pancreas contains those cells which are responsible for secreting hormones such as insulin. Insulin is very important hormone for regulating the level of blood sugar.

Liver is another vital organ in human body. Liver receives the items for digestion. So its job is to break down fats and convert glucose into glycogen. Further to it, it removes damaged red cells, extra amino acids and thus handles the very critical jobs.

Heart is the most important organ in our body for blood circulation. Our body has a unique system of blood circulation. Heart shoulders the entire responsibility of circulating impure blood and purified blood through our arteries and veins. In case a patient’s blood circulation system fails, the patient needs heart transplantation. The patient is diagnosed to be the case of Cardio Myopathy.

Heart Valve is the important component for our heart’s proper functioning. Some patients do not need the full heart to be transplanted, but only the valve(s), without which their heart may not function at all.

Lungs mean the organ which performs our breathing job. The jobs of lungs are to bring the inhaled air to the close contact with the blood. By this way, oxygen passes throughout the body system while exhaling or throwing away the waste carbon dioxide from our respiratory system. If a patient has reduced breathing capacity due to illness, infection or injury, he or she needs lungs transplantation. The patient of this condition is known as the case of Cystic Fibrosis.

Skin covers the entire external parts of our body. The other important job of our skin is containing nerve receptors which ultimately do the jobs of sensations like pain, touch, cold or heat.

Eyes are the organs which perform the job of our vision. The components in our eyes are corneas, pupil or circular opening, iris etc. if a patient has the ailment in any of these components, the patient will have the problem of vision loss. In many cases a patients need cornea transplantations
