In the last three years or so, the news about Green Channels for Live Organ Transportation has become very frequent in the media. Only on Tuesday, a green channel has been arranged to transport the heart from a private hospital in the city to the NIMS in just 12 minutes. A brain-dead constable's heart has given a fresh lease of life to a 30-year-old painter. The man got registered with the Jeevandan Cadaver Transplantation Programme of the state government and received the organ within a day of registering.


This is just an example and is one of the many transplantation services happening in the city. The city has become a haven for transplantation services of liver, kidney, heart, and pancreas, among other organs. There has been increasing awareness among hospitals and patients about brain death cases.


The Jeevandan Cadaver Organ Transplant Programme which started in 2013 has become very helpful. Hospitals are trying to create awareness in the families of braindead patients. They are carefully maintaining the organs until they receive consent for donation and the recipient is ready.


"When a patient is declared braindead, the body becomes unstable and the organs start to deteriorate. They should be maintained until the consent is received and the recipient is ready. Once they are in place, the transportation is being planned with the police department and Green Channels are arranged.There are instances in recent times where Metro Rail Services are also used for transportation.


The city hospitals have experts handling complex organ transplantations with utmost precision. As a result, there is a huge influx of patients from other states as well to the city hospitals. "Hospitals of other states sent their patients on air ambulances after confirming the availability of organs. The trust is high on the systems here right from the donations to transportation to transplantation," a source in Yashoda Hospital tells us. The success of the city on this front can be attributed to the excellent work of the medical and police personnel and the coordination between them. 


The awareness is increasing in the people about organ donation which is important of all. In 2020, nearly 257 organs were donated by 75 individuals. The numbers were less because there were fewer accidents and injuries leading to brain deaths since the state is under Lockdown and the vehicular movement is also less due to Work From Home Culture. But then, the demand for lung transplantation has increased as there were more cases of lung damage caused by Covid-19.
