Re: [IP] ER and Organ Donor



Okay.. On the topic of organ/tissue donations.
They can use ALMOST everything from the body
Bone,
Nerves (for progressive Ulnar Neuropathy not caused by diabetes)
Heart,
Liver, which can be sectioned off to fit 2 people as the Liver is the ONLY 
organ in the body to regenerate
Lungs,
Kidneys
Eyes (aka Cornea's)
and Most important...
the LARGEST organ of the body THE SKIN

what some do not know, is if you have a son, and you do a circumsision, the 
foreskin of the newborn childs penis can also be used.. It is used to grow 
donor skin as is the skin of the person that has passed away and has agreed 
to becoming a organ/tissue donor.

United Network for Organ Sharing http://www.unos.org/
How to Become an Organ and Tissue Donor http://www.organdonor.gov/

Thank you for allowing me to share some of my knowlage to the IP site
>>Even the skin can be used.  I didn't know that.
