This article from American Journal of Transplantation, A journal utilizing the statistics which
demonstrates the positive impact from living donors over the last 12 years, the negative decrease
in donors over the past 12 years. The Percentages of living donors from racial minorities has
endured unaffected over the past 5 years, Although, African American donors has decreased.
High risk donors has increased over time but people continue to accept the high risk organs
because they do not have much of a chance to get a better organ because of the organ shortage.
There is a growing gap between the number of people waiting for a transplant and people who
actually get the transplant causing thousands of deaths per year. Organ transplants are successful
they save and transform thousands of lives each year. Klein gave us straight research on
important aspects of the organ donation topic.

David Shaw, wrote an article titled Organ Donation is the Right Decision: A Delicate Truth
which was published in the Intensive Care Medicine Journal in 2015. The article title pretty
much explains itself, Shaw wrote this article to get more insight on organ donation. The article
explains the many ways organ donation is used to save a life. Shaws main focus of the article
was discussing the impact organ donation has on children. He believes children are the future
and if donating your organs after death means saving a childs live then everyone should do it
because it has no effect on you. Shaw surveyed one million people in a population asking if you

see a toddler fall in ten feet away from you. The water is only one foot deep and theres no risk
of you drowning. Should you save the child (Shaw, 1488)? Everyone answered yes as expected
then he asked are you an organ donor or plan to be? Only 43.2% could answer yes. Shaw ended
his article listing the requirements/ qualifications needed to become an organ donor.

Journalist Michael Oliver and his colleagues focused on the religious concerns that may arise
during the organ donation debate. Religion is a part of most people lives and different religions
have different judgements on organ donation. Oliver discussed a synopsis on different religions
and their attitudes on organ donation. The article describes the lack of education on organ
donation as one of the effects of why there is a shortage. Other reasons of shortage could include
not enough matches, higher need then donors and fear. Oliver and his colleagues ensure that they
highlight the applied points for health care specialists who are involved in organ donation and
transplantation. Awareness of these actualities may provide a background to deal with these
issues professionally and properly.

In this article, Claudia H Marck and her colleagues intended to describe the experiences of
families of possible organ and tissue donors eligible for donation after circulatory death or brain
death. Families discussed many ways to decide after death whether or not to be an organ donor,
their medical attention, the methods of consent and donation would be vital to their outcome.
They expressed the need for organs and the ways people decided to donate versus people who
did not want to donate their organs. Many expressed that individuals would benefit from being
able to know to ask questions and explain possible mistakes. Marck and her colleagues explained
that there are typically misunderstandings concerning organ donation because there is not enough
information given on the subject. Despite some obvious difficulties individuals are hopeful to
obtain an organ.

This article written by Chien Yu-Hung and Wen-Te Chang clarifies the idea of the countless
individuals internationally being disinclined to being an organ donor because they are not first
educated on the subject. Their study shed light on their idea of paying college students for their
organs. This is a good idea because there would be less of a shortage and would give college
students the funds they may need. Their study proved that paying people for their organs creates
more organ donation and limits the shortage. Their study examines messaging strategies. Some
claims of developing actual positive organ donation materials to make people feel more
comfortable about organ donation.. Chien Yu-Hung proves the difference in educating donors
versus leaving them uneasy about their organ donation decision.
