SUBJECT AREA OF STUDY (AREA OF STUDY) : Should there be Legalization OF Sale OF Human Organs CENTER NAME : Deccan International School CENTER NUMBER : IN725 CANDIDATE NAME: Akshay Rao CANDIDATE NUMBER: 0038 Introduction To quote an eminent authority on the subject 'Organ Transplantation is one of the miracles of modern medicine '. Sadly it is a glory that is out of reach for many thousands of people whose lives could be saved. Today we require more families to consent to donation of organs of their family members, more people to sign in for organ donation and for medical personnel to approach more families of potential donors. This would eventually help increase the
Good morning dear honorable guests, teachers, and fellow schoolmates. I am Candice, a first-year undergraduate. The organ donation rate in Hong Kong is extremely low when compared with other developed countries. It causes terminally-ill patients to have a long wait or even have died before an organ is available for transplantation. My talk is concerned with raising awareness about the need of donating organs to save lives and recommending ways to increase the organ donation rate.
Despite our advances in medical technology, each year, thousands of people suffer and die due to organ failure. There are various causes to organ failure, either by physical damage, genetic mutation (exogenous factors: e.g. sunlight, radiation, smoking, etc..), and genetically inherited diseases. At this point in time, there are numerous of ways to solving organ failure, such as through the use of dialysis, pacemakers, drugs, etc… But in the end, the most sustainable way of potentially curing organ dysfunction is through organ transplants. Those who have passed away due to organ failure did not die because of the lack sufficient medical treatment, in fact the success rates of organ transplants operated around the world are all over 80%, so what are causing these deaths?
Organ donation happens worldwide and can save many lives. When choosing to become an organ donor only certain organs can be donated. Organ transplants tend to be very expensive but, there is no price for a life. Tons of young and old people need these transplants and continuously wait on a list till it is their turn. People can donate organs before and after death but some organ transplants cause people to need additional hospitalization.
In the United States alone, 19 people die every day waiting on an organ transplant that could have saved their lives. The only solution to this problem is getting more drivers registered as organ donors. It has been proposed that the states automatically register their drivers as donors and it is up to the drivers to go through the procedure of opting out if that is what they wish. I agree with this proposal because you still have the freedom to make your choice but most people would not want to go through the process of opting out, so the number of organ donors would be greatly increased. If I was introducing this topic to an audience who knew nothing about it, I would start with explaining what organ donors do.
Consequently, human population has exploded to a point where the earth may not be able to support us” (R.). Technology is the top reason why the balance has been permanently disturbed. Modern medicine and technology are keeping people alive longer while we are having a difficult time adapting. Imagine that, we are saving lives, but at the same time babies are being born every second; which at the end causes overpopulation. As a final point, another cause of overpopulation is lack of family planning.
Stryker marketed its products directly to hospitals and physicians in the United States and 100 other countries. Given the decline in the number of hospitals due to consolidation and cost containment efforts by government programs and health care insurers, the industry expected continued downward pressure on prices. How could Stryker effectively deal with these developments to continue its growth? (Thomas L, 2010) One key reason for their success is the decentralized manner in which we operate our businesses. Division presidents have direct responsibility for Sales, Marketing, R&D and Business Development.
CKD is a long term disorder caused by damage to both kidneys , . There is no single cause and the damage is typically permanent and can lead to ill health. In some cases dialysis or transplantation may become essential. Diabetes mellitus is also becoming more common in one cause of CKD. Chronic kidney disease is become more frequently in older people and consequently is likely to increase in the population as a whole.
