  • Introduce yourself, your title and agency, and that you here to talk about organ and tissue donation.
  • Why talk about it? Does anybody like to watch Grey’s Anatomy, John Q? The Eye? Not going to happen in real life, the way they interpret O/T donation we are here to give you the facts about O/T donation.
  • Everyday people like you and me are affected. THESE PEOPLE ARE YOUNG… Tonisha…liver tx when 17 yrs. Old. Boy with basketball…kidney transplant when sophomore in HS. LPG son his mom has received a kidney transplant. Girl with backpack received ligaments (tissue transplant) It is a growing health issue, yet there are many myth, misconceptions and questions out there about how it all works. When you turn 18, you will have the opportunity to register your decision to be an organ/tissue donor with the Illinois Secretary of State’s office. Even if you aren’t 18, you have the opportunity to talk to your family about it and help educate others. We are here to give the FACTS about organ and tissue donation so you can make an informed decision.
  • Donate Life Illinois is a coalition of agencies that are involved with donation and transplantation. What is a name on here that jumps out? Permits…DL…Jesse White.
  • Today, we’re going to cover: The need for transplantation -- why do so many people need transplants? How donation and transplantation works And finally, if you decide to become an organ/tissue donor, what you need to do to document your decision.
  • As of August 12, 2008, there are more than 99,000 people waiting David passed away waiting Some like to say: A single donor can on average , save and help more than 25 people.
  • Candidates…put into pool Ask what organs are you waiting for? During evaluation see a social worker, checked out physically. Once a candidate added by transplant list. Every 13 minutes someone is added to the transplant list.
  • Ask the students what organs can be donated before putting the pictures on the screen Here are some of the reasons that can cause the organs to fail. For exp, CF (mucus in lungs), (kidneys are 3x’s the size, born with) Discuss genetic vs environment How many lives can I save? Could be 8…why…split liver, kidneys, not everyone needs a double lung transplant.
  • Gentleman from CA waiting for a liver Tx. Look skinny face, arms, large his abdominal. Toxic fluid only thing to save his life… is a liver transplant. TELL THEM IF YOU WANT TO CLOSE YOUR EYES YOU CAN. Healthy liver = size of football. Imagine how large the diseased liver. Here is the man after his transplant, people who receive transplants can go on to live long, healthy lives. Now we know about all the organs…what tissues can be donated??? GIVEAWAYS.
  • Again, ask students first before putting up on the screen 1 in 20 Americans will need some type of medical tissue transplant during lifetime Patient referred within 1 hour of death Donation agency evaluates patient’s medical eligibility, identifies donor registry status Donation agency contacts family to discuss the donation opportunity Donation agency contacts hospital with outcome, the information on how to proceed Tissue recovered at hospital or OR facility Dime size tissue that is on our eyes…corneal blindness different from a retina blindness. (Black and white fuzzy now like HD TV) Maybe can’t donate whole heart, can donate heart valve Donated bone Carson Palmer (QB for Bangles) he received donated ligaments from a woman who passed away in a Drunk driver accident. Veins- poor circulation Skin – top of legs and portion of back, enough to help sever burn victims. If I donate these organs and tissue can I still have an open casket…YES you can.
  • Clouded Corneas – CLOSE YOUR EYES…I will show a picture of the cornea. Cornea the one tissue that is donated and transplanted the most…b/c almost everyone can donated. It takes approximately 45 min to transplant a cornea. TURN LIGHTS OFF TO SEE PHOTO BETTER. Take care of your contacts…girl went to main west HS and went swimming with her contacts and now has had 3 corneal transplants. Do not sleep, swim or shower with your contacts in…this can lead to a blinding eye condition (b/c bacteria)
  • This is life saving donation… donate blood and bone marrow when you are still living and organs and tissue when you pass away. Eligibility for a blood donor: 110 lbs, at least 17 years old, have not give blood in the last 56 days (8weeks)
  • If the family says yes, we work together with the transplant centers to coordinate the organ recovery efforts, making sure that the maximum number of organs are transplanted to the correct recipients, all within a very short window of time. Surgical procedure when organs are recovered. If I am the donor, your doctors will come to me to recover the organs.
  • What causes brain death? Any type of trauma to the brain such as: Motor vehicle accident Gun shot wound Fall Anoxia (loss of oxygen to brain) Intracranial bleed Brain tumor Examining for Brain Death (some of the tests conducted on the patient) No blood flow No brain activity No response to pain Pupils are unreactive (fixed) No corneal reflexes No gag reflex No spontaneous respiration Coma vs Brain Death Heard about people waking up form a coma, but never wake up from brain death. Patient on mechanical support keeps the organs good if the family chooses to donate.
  • We need to get the organs into the recipients as quickly as possible. Kidneys up to 72 hours.
  • Important to register your wishes in case anything ever happens to you Surveys: More than 90% of people believe “registering as a donor is the right thing to do” Millions register as organ/tissue donors What are we asking of you today…whatever your decision is please talk to your family. We are not hear to make a decision, but we want you to have the facts.
  • Organ and tissue donation touches the lives of those who have lost loved ones while waiting for a transplant as well as those whose loved ones have given the gift of hope to those desperately waiting. Benefits to recipients: A new chance at life Freedom from debilitating effect of disease Chance to life a “normal life” Benefits to donor families: Brings something positive to a tragic situation Allows families to honor their loved one’s wishes Heather- 16yrs old, still waiting…kidneys helps us grow. Tuesday kidney tx can not go back to work… Tracey mom passed away and received a tissue transplant.

  • DO NOT SWIM, SHOWER or GO in a HOT TUB with your contacts in. Waterborne organism
  • Polycystic Kidney versus a normal kidney. A normal, healthy kidney is the size of your fist Polycystic kidney is 5x the normal size of a kidney and has fluid filled cysts all over Genetic disease Diagnosed early, but doesn’t become a problem until 40 or 50 y/o
