Organ Transplant Patient Home Page

Carl Hart <chartsf@hooked.net>:
There are numerous sites with transplant information; some pages are
dedicated to health care practitioners, others to patients and their
families. However, I found the information to be piecemeal, in no
logical order. I began to think back to my own experience with my
father's heart transplant: What information could I have used, and when
could have I used it? Thus, I recognized that one way to present this
information logically was to present it in a chronologically based Table
of Contents:
after the shock of the diagnosis and prognosis;
becoming informed about the procedure;
determining where the transplant may take place;
qualifying for the treatment (i.e., meeting the medical and
insurance/financial criteria);
entering the transplant program;
undergoing the transplant procedure; and,
complying with the aftercare instructions and addressing complications.

saving and improving lives by closing the gap between the number of organ

actually occur.
