One donor can help one recipient enjoy a better quality life. By donating organs you will be able to save lives and that will make you a true hero to that person and their family. If you have ever known someone who has received an organ, then you will know just what an incredible gift this is. If you can save someone from dying, then of course most of us would see this as a highly positive thing. If you were dead and your organs were in a good condition there is no reason for you to keep them for yourself, especially when your organs can save some people from dying.
The body parts and organs that were named have been successful in treating the patient’s condition. Discuss whether or not these artificial organs can permanently replace the original human organ. I believe in this day and time, that completely ruling out regular transplant would not be fair because there are so many people waiting for a transplant. I feel as though artificial organs cannot permanently take the place of original human organs because a patient might not react as well to an original human organ rather than an artificial one. My theory also is that eventually people will start bidding on artificial organs and the richer people will have say over a family that doesn't have a lot of money.
11/02/11 Reflection of Service Learning St. Baldrick’s Event At the St. Baldrick’s event I learned about the many effects of many different types of cancers. This experience influenced me in many different ways. It made me want to give help to everyone because anyone could need it but sometimes you can’t physically tell how. It made me feel like offering help to everyone. It made me happy for the survivors but also sad that they had to be put through such a traumatic life experience.
They both have the concept of saving a life, but just have different ways of doing it. Patch’s is more of the unorthodox practice and can go really great, or go really sour. If Patch has a more understanding of personal information about a person, then he can rule out certain diseases or treatments needed for the patient. By doing this, he can save lots of time and possible save a life if under a time frame. But if Patch was too attach to the patient, he could also make a totally wild off the chart procedure and could cause more damage or be fatal to the patient.
Meth addiction harms the body in a horrific way, the drug is made up of chemicals that can kill a person also leading to the addiction, and in order to get over the drug it’s a continuous battle the person must want it for themself, and have the strength over their own mind they can’t be weak or they will fail and relapse. In the beginning use of Meth there are not many changes in appearance, but within a couple months a person’s whole appearance can be changed. The body tends to get very thin, and for most people their skin starts getting picked at leaving open wounds. The appearance can change so fast that the person may not even be recognizable. Not only does the appearance change so do the mind.
Even though it is already legal, at first when it became legal it spread around quickly. The fear was that doctors would be basically killing patients who maybe have psychological problems and have nothing to do with being physically ill. There was a statement made where it said: “Dutch doctors have gone from killing the severely ill, to the disabled and even the depressed who aren’t physically sick.” In addition too, this case about assisted suicide is iffy because under age patients like 18 year old may ask for it if they do have a problem and are in contact with a physician. The problem with that is maybe they aren’t sure of what they want and are taking the toll on their lives. The way of looking at this is giving medical care and love and compassion to these people.
Their condition might take an unexpected turn; or they might change their mind about a treatment; or a treatment might have disappointing effects. In these and similar cases, withdrawal of a treatment after trying it will be acceptable legally and ethically. If the team believes that a treatment could do some good, it would be unacceptable not to commence it on the basis of a false fear that it would not be possible to stop the treatment. Special legal procedures are associated with decisions relating to patients in a persistent vegetative state (BMA 2007). Intention Charges of murder and voluntary manslaughter require an intention to kill or harm on the part of the accused.
In my own community, several people have needed transplants in order to live. In this kind of situation, the community is affected along with the family and patient; people experience first-hand the terrible feeling of waiting for an organ or tissue match. When these people were in need of a donation, the community became more involved with the transplant process, and many people who had previously not considered donation signed up to be organ or tissue donors. Many people felt that they had a duty to become donors; perhaps this idea of personal duty is correct. I think our society has a responsibility to take care of its members, and that responsibility extends to organ and tissue donation.
Organ Donation, Selling, & Human Trafficking Impact on Personal (Ethical) Values When thinking of organ donation, most people just think of donating your organs after you die or when someone desperately needs it. It saves lives but, when looking at a wider picture we see not only donating. For example, selling and human trafficking is happening as well. Depending on personal or ethical values, makes the difference of how each of these may impact people. The processes of each, donating, selling, and trafficking can change the people’s opinions or values.
