Organ Transplant & Procurement Air Ambulance
AIR AMBULANCE TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS FOR ORGAN TRANSPLANTS
Organ transplantation is one of the significant advances in modern medicine. Organ and tissue donation helps save lives, restore health, and enhance medical care. The need for organ donors is much greater than the number of people who donates. In the United States, approximately 21 people die per day waiting for an organ, and more than 106,000 men, women, and children wait for life-saving organ transplants. 83% of the waiting list wait for a kidney transplant. It is estimated that every donor can save up to 8 lives and enhance the quality of life of at least 75 more.
