Organ Donation and Advanced Air Ambulances: Meeting a Critical Need

Organ donation and the advanced air ambulance industry are closely intertwined. Not only are air ambulances are often used to transport donated organs for transplant, but patients in need of an organ may also travel via air ambulance so that they can receive a transplant.

Organ transplant waiting lists are long – currently more than 100,000 people are on waiting lists in the U.S. – and the people who need new organs are in desperate need. So when a match is made between a donated organ and a person on the transplant list, time is of the essence. Often, air ambulances are used to transport the life-saving organs (such as kidneys, livers, lungs, hearts, and eyes) to the patients who need them.

In addition, patients may sometimes need to travel so that they can receive an organ transplant. For example, a person living in another country may travel to the United States for a transplant operation. In other cases, a patient may need to travel from their current location to a medical facility (such as a transplant center) where the operation can be performed. Whatever the situation, air ambulance providers like MedFlight911 work to make sure that these patients get the organs that may save their life.

Whether transporting an organ or a patient, these are high-stakes long-distance medical transports, since it's critical to get the organ to the patient as quickly as possible. Every day, 18 people die while waiting for an organ transplant, so when a match is made, everyone involved – doctors, patients, and the entire air ambulance team – wants to get that organ to that patient is order to save a life.

While some people might find organ donation frightening or a little unsettling, the fact is that it is a well-established medical practice that helps to save lives; a single donor can help up to eight people. By signing up to be an organ donor, you can help someone else live. Everyone can register to be a donor – age and current health status won't necessarily disqualify you. Learn more about organ donation and how to register to become a donor at www.organdonor.gov.
