Talking about the need of organ donation, the official spokesperson of Narayana Hrudayalaya stated that, “With the number of increasing deadly diseases, there arises a dire need to create awareness and educate the public on deceased organ donation. It is equally important to clear the misconceptions and beliefs that organs should not be donated for various religious and other reasons.”

The advancements in organ transplant technology along with the creation of green corridors which are dedicated roads with manually operated traffic signals between the hospitals harvesting the organ and the transplant centers highlight the high growth and advancement prospects of medical industry.  Many Hospitals have gone a step forward to consider drones for speedy transport of organs particularly the heart.

The recent advancements in transplant technology, surgical skills, immunosuppressive therapies, have increased the success rates and quality of life. A brain dead person donating the organ can give a new lease of life to 10 to 12 people. This provides a new lease of life to the needy patient and the generous donor continues to live through another person.

Organs are also airlifted on a time-bound basis but the road travel to the hospital premises is inevitable. The Organ Donation Day observed every year on August 13 is aimed at creating a registry of donors to offer heart, liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, and pancreas in case of brain death and tissues like corneas, heart valves, skin, bones etc. in case of natural death.
