Organ transplantation

Some 300 people in Sweden die every year under such circumstances that a transplantation could be possible. Only about half of these will become donators.

Organs in a dead body

A person whose organs may be transplanted has to die of total infarct of the brain, whilst connected to a respirator on an intensive care unit.

This circumstance is essential for the organs not to suffer injuries due to lack of oxygen.
