The Procedure For Organ Donation After Someone Dies?
Good morning, I want to ask What is the procedure for organ donation after death in Indonesia, is there a special institution that regulates it and how is it registered? thanks.
Hello Putri0206, Thank you for the question.
Organ donation is a procedure to donate organs for others to save or improve the quality of life of others. Organs are taken from the donor's body and grafted into the body of another person who has organ failure. Almost everyone can do an organ donation but depends on the way the person died and the condition of the tissue / organ to be donated. Organs or tissues that can be donated are kidneys, heart, lungs, liver, pancreas, heart valves, skin, eyes, bone tissue. A person can donate his organs after being declared brain dead by a doctor at the hospital. The doctor will usually do several examinations to ensure that someone has experienced brain death. Usually there is a certain period so that the organ to be donated is still in good condition after someone is declared brain dead. Unfortunately, organ donation is still a rare and controversial matter in Indonesia. There are no specific institutions that regulate organ or tissue donors. The existing institution is an institution to regulate eye corneal donors, namely Bank Mata Indonesia. Please try to contact the institution to find out how to register to become a donor of the cornea of the eye.
Hopefully this information is useful.
