Have a Heart- Organ & Tissue Banks
When a person thinks of banks, organs and tissue don't often come to mind. However, through generous donors, organ and tissue banks have improved the health of countless people. A deceased organ donor can save up to eight people, and a tissue donor can save up to fifty people. Whole body donations generally are given to schools where they're used to teach doctoral candidates proper surgery techniques or more about the human body itself. The feeling of saving someone's life is incomparable to anything else. The most frequently needed human organs for donation are the kidneys, liver, heart, intestines, lungs, and pancreas. In the case of kidneys, a living relative may be able to donate one kidney to the afflicted person for transplant. However, but the risk for both parties before and after the operation can often be high. Bone marrow and skin are examples of tissue donations. Marrow transfusions help fight cancer and skin grafts can help save a burn victim. Blood transfusions are always needed, but there are specific banks for only blood donations. These organizations find deceased tissue and organs based on donor registries and family matches. Some banks require registration through their company separately, but since many states give the option to register for donation when applying for a driver's license, many organ and tissue banks find transplant parts that they need through the state's registry. When a transplant match is found, banks will contact the relevant hospital, and ship the organ or tissue to the medical hospital closest to the recipient. Medical specialists handle transplant procedures.

Organ and tissue banks, places that store organs and tissues for hospitals and labs, collect, store, and deliver tissue and organs to people who are terminally ill and need new organs to survive. Such banks may also provide donation information, support, awareness, and registries. Children and adults in need of organs and tissue are typically placed on a donation list. When their name comes up, they are given a fresh organ from someone who has just died. Many people opt to be an organ donor, specifying that they, when they pass away, would like their organs and tissue to go to someone in need. This saves countless lives. Organs include kidneys, hearts, and livers. Tissue usually refers to skin. You can find organ and tissue banks by looking in your local phone book or by searching online directory listings. Similarly, you can donate blood at blood banks and centers, where you can choose to give and store your own blood for your own personal future use, for a monthly or yearly fee. Sometimes, in an emergency, a person requires a blood transfusion of the same blood type and match. Stored blood can save a life in these types of situations. If you choose to give blood at your local blood bank or center, go online or look in your phone book to find a center near you. If you wish to become an organ donor, check out online organ and tissue bank websites to fill out registration forms. Go online to learn about donor transplants, waiting lists, health care and medical information, local hospitals, centers where you can donate blood, organ donation specialists, and surgery operations that can be done to save a life through transplant. Also, check out the risks, as well as insurance information.
