Apply for an organ donation card

Description

Organ donation is a very personal thing. For or against - this is a decision that no one can take away from you. Some people find it uncomfortable to think that an organ is taken from them after death. Others, in turn, feel that by donating organs, they can do something for other people even after their death.

In any case, the need for donor organs is high, and many people have been waiting for years for a suitable organ. In order to help them, it is important to decide for or against organ donation and to record the decision in an organ donation card. This will ensure that the doctors will act according to your wishes.

In addition to the living, the donors of organs are also people whose brain functions have already been extinguished, but whose cardiovascular system is still artificially maintained.
For successful organ donation, it is essential that donated organs are healthy and functional. Therefore, in the case of a brain death in the case of an existing consent, various examinations are carried out immediately before the removal of the organ in order to check its functioning.

Further information on organ donation can be obtained from the Federal Centre for Health Education.
