3 1 Itroductio This brochure is about orga doatio, particularly deceased orga doatio. Decidig to become a orga door is a very persoal decisio ad you have to make the choice that s right for you. It is also essetial to discuss your wishes with your family because your ext of ki will be ivolved i the coset process i the evet of your death. There are two types of orga doatio: deceased doatio takes place whe orgas become available for trasplatatio after someoe has died. Livig doatio happes whe someoe volutarily doates a orga (usually a kidey) or part of a orga (such as the liver or lug) to a perso i eed. Why orga doatio is so importat Orga doatio saves lives ad restores health. A kidey trasplat is ot a cure but represets the best possible improvemet to health ad quality of life for may people livig with kidey failure. The oly other life-sustaiig treatmet is dialysis to artificially clea the blood.

4 2 Facig the facts The eed for orgas for trasplatatio is far greater tha the available supply. Waitig times vary from a few moths to several years, depedig o a variety of factors. Livig doatio of kideys is fast out-pacig deceased doatio as a source of orgas, but both kids of orga doatio combied still do ot meet the eed for kideys for trasplatatio. Orgas from people who have died are a critical source of orgas for trasplatatio. Kidey trasplats are highly successful Kidey trasplatatio is a very successful ad accepted treatmet. The success rate for a trasplat from a deceased door is high: 85 90% of these kideys are workig well after oe year ad will last o average from 10 to 15 years. Success rates are improvig every year with advaces i medical research.

5 3 4 What exactly is deceased doatio? A perso decides to doate their orgas upo their death. These orgas (ad tissues) are the assessed for suitability ad surgically trasplated ito someoe o a trasplat waitig list. Before orga doatio ca occur, strict medical criteria must be met to determie if brai death has occurred, or to proceed with the doatio after cardiac death. Deceased doors may also be called o-livig doors or cadaveric doors. What orgas ca be doated The lugs, heart, liver, kideys, pacreas ad bowel ca be doated. Tissues may iclude eye tissue, heart valves, boe, tedos, veis ad ligamets. More tha two doze people ca be helped by a sigle door. A orga door may specify which orgas ad tissues he or she would like to doate. Although ayoe ca idicate their wishes to become a orga door upo their death, oly the orgas of a small umber of people about 3% ca actually be used. This has to do with medical issues, icludig the health of the orgas, ad the circumstaces of the perso s death.

6 4 ORGANS TISSUES Eye Tissue Lugs Ski Heart Heart Valves Liver Kideys Pacreas Bowel Boe Tedos Veis Ligamets How orgas are retrieved After the perso dies, the orgas are surgically removed. The body is ot disfigured ad is treated with respect ad digity. A ope casket fueral is possible for deceased doors.

7 5 4 How orgas are allocated Orga trasplat programs have a allocatio (or matchig) system so that the distributio of orgas is based o fair criteria. These may iclude suitable match, the amout of time already spet o the waitig list, ad other factors. Each trasplat ceter ca provide the guidelies it uses. Who ca doate orgas Ayoe of ay age ca doate orgas ad tissues. It is the health of the door that is most importat. How to become a orga door If you are iterested i beig a orga door, here are some steps you ca take. 1. Lear: Fid out as much as you ca about orga doatio. Thik about whether you wat to doate all your orgas or oly specific oes. 2. Decide: Oly you ca make the right choice. It must be a decisio that both you ad your family are comfortable with. You may chage your mid at ay time. 3. Act: If you decide you wat to doate your orgas (ad tissues) after your death, you must register your decisio o your healthcare card, driver s licese, or with your provicial door registry.
