I would love to give my husband my lung - I have two that work well. How do I begin?
Living lung donation involves two adults each giving the lower right and left lobes Donor lungs must be the right size and volume. Potential donors undergo a series of examinations and tests including chest x-ray, pulmonary function test, ventilation-perfusion scanning and computed tomography(CT), cardiac stress test.Donating a lung is far more risky than live kidney donation and the risks and benefits will need to be fully discussed with the transplant team.Contact transplant centers for additional information about lung donation. You can find statistics and information about living donation on the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) web site at www.transplantliving.org. Talk to your local transplant center for more information about lung donation.If you need assistance to find a local centre, please advise your Zip.
