Organ transplantation: Special consideration for kids
from By Dorothy L. Tengler
From Aug. 29:
Nearly 120,000 men, women and children currently need life-saving organ transplants. Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list. As of March, 1,760 of these patients were pediatric. But just how long do children have to wait, and how is the process different for them than for adults? New ethical questions have been raised, surrounding the recent lung transplantation case of 10-year old girl Sarah Murnaghan from Pennsylvania.
