MAZATLAN. – Did you know that when a person dies and donates his organs, he can save up to a thousand lives? That is the importance of having a culture of donation.
But did you know that there are two types of donation? The president of the Ale Mazatlán Association, Verónica Olvera, specified that there are two forms: tacit and express.
Tacit donation is when a possible donor or donor has not stated in a document the refusal so that after his death, his organs are used for transplantation. The aforementioned consent will be necessary to obtain it from the following persons who are present: the spouse, the concubine, the concubine, the descendants, the ascendants, the siblings, the adopted, or the adopter. If more than one of the aforementioned persons is present, the corresponding priority will be applied according to the level of kinship.
On the other hand, an express donation is the action of expressing in writing or verbally, the will to donate their organs in life or after their death. It will be considered a broad donation when it refers to the total disposition of the body or limited when it is only granted with respect to certain components.
What organs can be donated?
The organs that can be donated are the kidneys, liver, heart, pancreas, stomach, intestine, and lungs. In addition, much-needed tissues such as bone, corneas, and heart valves can also be obtained from a donation.
Now, to be a voluntary donor of organs and tissues, anyone can consult the website of the National Transplant Center: https://www.gob.mx/cenatra or visit the IMSS page in the link: http:/ /www.imss.gob.mx/salud-en-linea/donacion-organos , in order to register the data to be accredited as a donor.
