Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 16 Aug,2019

Mr. Dharma, 29-years-old from Mysore, met with an accident near Chunchunkatte, KR Nagara Taluk and was brought to Apollo BGS Hospitals, Mysore at 8:15 pm on 14th August 2019 in an unconscious and critical condition. Initial CT scan showed severe traumatic brain injury. Patient was shifted to ICU for life support & intensive care. He was kept on life support the whole night and the patient was in a very critical state.

Patient was declared brain dead due to brain stem failure, as per the hospital protocol stipulated by the transplant of human organs act 1994 by panel list doctors at Apollo BGS Hospitals, Mysore. Mr. Dharma was healthy before the incident and further tests confirmed his eligibility for organ donation. Attenders were counseled for organ donation as per the defined protocol, and subsequently the deceased patient’s brother & relatives came forward to donate Mr. Dharma’s organs. As per organ donation protocols, officials from Jeeva Sarthakathe which was earlier known as ZCCK initiated the process as per the organ recipients waiting list.

Apollo BGS Hospitals, Mysuru is very thankful to the deceased family for coming forward for this noble cause and promote Organ Donation!
