I left home.
Arriving at transplant network, I heard some stories about transplants, I saw how important the right of self-decision was.
I left the JOTnw, when I saw the number of people waitng dotors. Refer to the below:heart: 17 Liver: 29 Lung:3 Kidney: 15204 (1998, Sep. 30th). The headed for the Ministry of Health and Welfare.
I reaches the AIDS disease pronsion department. In the department, I was admonished for not having an appontment.
Mr. Shirakawa returned. He welcomed us despite the lack of the appontment. There was Mr. Tamaki, the cordinator of JOTnw. I asked him, "I know almost one year has passed since the enforcement. Do you think that donors will appear?" Then there is no donor from enforcement of transplant law, Oct, 1997. "It wil, but not before another 3 years." he said, which I felt was the present condition. I feel that those who want organs do exist, but it can not be done becaues of the inadegurcy of laws and perception. What is wonderful is that I can say so to the officer of the Ministry of Health and Welfare.
We went home
1.The process of the brain death
Brain death means the death of brain stem. Then, how on earth the symptom occurs? The coordinator told, "When a ball hit your head, your brain expands. As your cranium is hard, the brain barges into the blood vessels. First, the pressure wrecks your soft, vulnerable veins, which fils the cranium again. Meanwhile, the arteries are hard and so blood's one way flew into the brain completely fill the skull with blood." I saw it very well.
2.The light and the shade of organ treatment
To give one's organ to a patient itself seems good. But however nice they feel, doctors in charge of the patients come to know the sorrow of the relations of the patients, the consideration of which prevents us from reckless transplants. "Wada affair" should also be reflected on. These are the light and the shade of organ treatment.
