Apply for an organ donor card

Description

Organ donation is a very personal matter. For or against - this is a decision that no one can take away from you. Some people are uncomfortable with the idea of having an organ removed from them after death. Others have the feeling that by organ donation they can do something for other people even after their death.

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

In addition to living people, 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 dead person, in the case of an existing consent, various examinations are carried out immediately before the removal of the organ in order to check its functionality.

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