When will my heart be OK?
When will your heart be okay?
This is the question many of us face after being told our heart was “broken” by a procedure to repair a torn heart valve.
What happens next is one of the most complex and difficult medical decisions that any patient faces.
Here are some of the answers.
What is a heart transplant?
A heart transplant is a surgical procedure to replace a defective heart with a healthy one.
In this case, a donor’s heart is replaced with an artificial one.
A donor heart is a normal heart and will function normally.
The transplant is done at the donor’s own hospital and then sent to a laboratory where it is carefully monitored by an independent cardiologist.
The lab will then check the heart’s condition to make sure it is functioning normally before it is removed.
A heart that has been damaged or has a damaged valve will be put into a ventilator to reduce pressure.
Once it has been put into the ventilators, the patient is given an infusion of a synthetic blood product to restore their blood supply.
In the event that the patient’s heart has been destroyed by a medical procedure, they can be restarted with a new artificial heart.
Is a heart donation worth it?
There are many different kinds of heart donations.
Some hospitals are willing to accept donated hearts for heart transplants.
Other hospitals, like McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont., will not accept hearts.
If your hospital is willing to offer an organ transplant, ask about how long the transplant will take and what the donation will cost.
The most important part of the procedure is that the donor heart can function normally again after the transplant.
There is some debate whether it is worthwhile to donate a heart to a person who is terminally ill or in an advanced stage of heart disease.
If you are a donor, ask if the organ is needed immediately, and whether it will be donated for long-term use.
If it is not, the donor may have a future organ transplant but the donation might not be a good one.
Do I need to be a member of a religious group before I donate my heart?
A lot of people have no idea what it means to be part of a faith community.
If a heart is donated to you, you are probably not part of any religious community.
However, if your religious affiliation does not have a clear code, you can ask about your religious beliefs and if you are in a religious community, what is your relationship to it.
How do I know if my donation is legal?
A donation of a heart can be legal, but you will need to ask your local hospital about the legality of your donation.
You can also ask your insurance company to check your insurance policy to make certain your donation is compliant with the law.
What are the risks of donating a heart?
If you choose to donate your heart, there is some risk to your health.
Heart transplants can cause blood clots in your heart and blood vessels to burst.
Some people are at increased risk for developing heart problems, such as a heart attack.
Other serious complications from heart transplans include: heart valve damage (e.g. heart failure)
