Organ transplants are becoming more popular and common throughout the United States and can be seen in many different forms such as a liver, kidney, lung, pancreas, heart, but due to the shortage of organs available, many are still on the list of those in need of an organ. Because of this, “Each day, about 77 people get an organ

Unit 1: Organ Donation Name: Kayden Mataafa Class: HED121A Introduction Organ donation within Australia is something society neglects, many barriers prevent Australians from knowing about donation, and how to go about donating. Organ donation is a life-saving and life-transforming medical process. Organ and tissue donation involves removing organs and tissues from someone who has died (a donor) and transplanting them into someone who, in many cases, is very ill or dying (a recipient) (Donatelife.gov.au, 2018). A donor within Australia cannot decide individually on whether they can or want to donate, in the end the family are always the final deciders in matters regarding organ donation. The purpose of this task is to incorporate the Ottawa
An organ transplant is an operation that places a healthy organ from one person into another. The organ can come from someone who has died (a deceased donor) and has signed their state’s donor registry or told their family of their wishes to become a donor. Up to 25 different organs can be donated for transplantation. Transplantable organs include the heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, pancreas, and small intestines. According to Donate Life America's 2011 statistics, there were 8,127 deceased organ donors and 6,017 living organ donors in the United States, adding up to 28,535 organ transplants overall.

Transplants occur when you have a big disease in one or more parts of your body (organs, tissues, parts from legs, etc…) and that makes that the part that is bad is not capable of doing it functions, so it is taken the damaged organ off of your body and it is replace by a new organ that in this case can do their functions.

A kidney transplant is done when the kidney of a patient start to go worse and finally it becomes into a big renal disease so there is necessary to be a transplant so the patient continues living and can continue with his life in normal conditions. When was discovered and when it was done for first time?
Successful transplantation of tissues and cells, such as skin and blood, began a little bit earlier than that (Tilney 2003). Organ transplantation has in the course of the last 50 years expanded exponentially, both in terms of survival rates and the number of people on the waiting lists. The range of conditions for which transplantation is offered has widened, and transplantable organs now include kidney, liver, heart, pancreas, and lung. Organ donors can provide all of these organs, while living donation is restricted to kidney and sections of the liver, lung, and pancreas. A consequence of this dramatic expansion in life-saving potentiality
