Who can donate organ
People of all ages can be considered for donation. At the time of death, age and medical condition will determine the organs and tissues that can be donated and the treating doctor can explain it upon your queries.
Organ donation is only possible when a person is on a ventilator (breathing machine) in an intensive care unit, usually with non-survivable brain damage. Organs will need to be removed by the surgical teams within a few hours. This is a respectful process, carried out with care, using normal operating procedures.
