Two brain-dead donors save fourteen lives in Karnataka


On 16th August 2021, Lawrence (40) from Hunsur and Shobha (48) from Kushalnagar met with a road accident and suffered severe head injuries. They had been moved to the Intensive Care Unit at BGS Hospitals, after being in another private hospital in Mysuru.

 Despite all efforts to save them, both the patients were declared brain dead, said N.G. Bharateesha Reddy, Vice-President and Unit Head, Apollo BGS Hospitals, Mysuru. The two deceased became potential donors after both their family members voluntarily gave their consent. The organs were retrieved and distributed to the waitlisted patients under the aegis of Jeevasarthakathe and State Organ and Tissue Transplant Organisation.
