An AIIMS-Delhi brain-dead patient whose family donated his organs in order to save multiple lives has been resurrected.
Krishna became brain stem dead despite best efforts to save her, doctors said. A team of doctors and transplant coordinators from the Organ Retrieval Banking Organisation (ORBO) counselled the family for organ donation.
There is a large unmet need for organs by children suffering from end-stage diseases of the kidney, liver and heart across India and training of doctors in transplants in children needs to be reinforced at regular intervals....
Bureaucratic hassle, misinformation, and lack of awareness deter people willing to donate organs.
