Firstly, The urgent demand for more organ donation. The number of patients on the waiting list for organ transplants in Hong Kong is rising because of the low organ donation rate and the increasing of terminally-ill patients. To put it simply, the organ donation is undersupplied. There are around 3,000 patients waiting for organ transplants. The Legislative Council Secretariat also mentions that kidneys were the most needed organ on the waiting list.
The main medicine for reducing bad cholesterol is statins, but some patients cannot tolerate it or do not get enough help from the drug. The study involved both Praulent and a similar medication, Repatha, manufactured by Amgen. But Repatha works in a different way and lowers cholesterol much more. The study on Praulent took a longer time and involved patients at a higher risk of heart events. These were almost 19,000 patients who suffered a heart attack or serious chest pain the previous year that they had to be hospitalized.
The world health organization has revealed that the illegal trade in kidneys has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually or more than an hour. The world health organization (WHO) estimates that over 100,000 organ transplant has performed across the world every year. But due to a mix of government policies, personal beliefs about organ donation, and our ability to safely
The growth in human population around the world affects all people through its impact on the economy and environment. The current rate of population growth is now a significant burden to human well-being. In the past, infant and childhood deaths and short life spans used to limit population growth. In today 's world, thanks to improved nutrition, sanitation, and medical care, more babies survive their first few years of life. Rapid human population growth has a variety of consequences.
Every ten minutes, someone is placed on a waiting list for an organ transplant, and every year the number of patients on this waiting listing continues to grow exponentially while the number of available organ transplants does not grow so quickly (organdonor.gov). This organ shortage represents a huge issue in the medical community, and numerous issues arise from the ethical principles involved with organ donation. The ethical dilemma in the case of Ruth Sparrow deals with whether it is ethical or unethical to allow people to sell their organs. This issue creates another dilemma about whether it is ethical or not to buy these organs. Each issue will be addressed separately as two different problems with two distinct answers.
Organ Donation: A Gift Not a Requirement The topic of organ donation has become a hot topic over the last few years. As the number of those requiring organ transplants steadily grows, the number of those registered to donate organs remains insufficient. Although according to HealthCorps (2016), 95 percent of Americans would agree to organ donation, only 52 percent registered as organ donors. With the continued high demand for organ donations and the limited supply, it is not surprising that there were judgments made about those who decline to register to become organ donors. Some have even been labeled selfish for refusing to register as organ donors.
A lengthy wait list exists in America due to liver failure. “More than 16,000 Americans are waiting for a liver transplant, according to federal data from the Organ Procurement and Transport Network. Only 6,000 organs are available a year and nearly 2,000 people will die waiting for one to become available” (Donaldson). The people eligible for a liver transplant is a controversial topic. “Reluctance to perform liver transplantation in alcoholics is based on the fact that alcoholism is frequently considered to be self-inflicted and on fears of harmful post-transplant alcoholism recurrence” (Donckier).
We need to know that kidney transplant is one of the most safe transplants but looking at that risks we also can see that the things that can go bad are a lot but we need to think that in year there are a lot of kidney transplants that go well so the best thing is to try for it. How much costs a kidney transplant? The kidney transplant costs in Spain 39000 euros and is the cheaper transplant in all the country. But at United States because of all the people that have to wait until they have their new kidney there are like creating a market but not a black market because a Nobel winner said two months ago that it would be a good idea to do
The transplantation of human organs, tissues and cells has extended in recent years, and greatly improved the quality of, hundreds of thousands of lives. As a result of increased demand of organ donation and the shortage of available organs, many countries developed a set of regulations and procedures for organ donation and transplantation. According to WHO and the directory of the regulation of organ transplantation in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, cells, tissues and organs may be removed from deceased and living persons for the purpose of transplantation, only according to the following Guiding Principles: • Only authorized specialized physicians in centers authorized by the ministry of health in GCC countries can perform organ transplantation
People worldwide are becoming increasingly prone towards various diseases with a mounting percentage of people with organ failures. Many are waiting to see if an organ becomes available and for a second chance at life. Such waiting causes suffering and deaths that could be preventable – if someone turns up to pledge their organs - and also add to a huge amount of money to health care costs. Recently, a family volunteered to donate their brain-dead son’s organs in Delhi. The doctors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) worked for 10 hours conducting the procedure and harvested 32 different organs which benefited 34 people.
