Help-Transplant Team Info

Posted

For an independent study, I'm considering looking into the role of the nurse as a member of an organ transplant team. Any info., pointers to other sites, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks......Howard

Hey Howard~

I used to work at Gift of Life Michigan, the organ donation and transplantation place here in MI. The people there were great, and I'm sure that someone would love to talk to you. Check out http://www.giftoflifemichigan.org

Howard,

I am a kidney transplant patient if you need the patient's point of view.

Organ Transplant, from the beginning of the procurement or as part of an OR team that is doing either the harvesting or the implantation?

The jobs can vary widely.............

Hi Curlyfries......I definitely need the patient's point of view along with some solid pointers on post op care beyond ambulation, temperature, vs's.

I will assume care of a 7 day post op patient. What meds, rejection signs, outputs, etc. can I expect within acceptable parameters.

I am looking for all the info I can get.

Thanks
