Organ Procurement System book

Organ Procurement System book. The organ procurement system in the United States has failed patients awaiting transplants, as evidenced by years-long waiting lists, with many patients declining in health or dying before a suitable organ donor is found. A. Barnett is a professor in, as well as the chairman of, the Department of Economics, International Studies, and Public Administration at the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. A summary of the book follows.

In this study, David L. Kaserman and A. Barnett trace how the current organ shortage grew from a public policy . Barnett trace how the current organ shortage grew from a public policy based more on accident than design. The earliest transplants were of kidneys donated by a living relative, so no shortages or waiting lists existed. In addition, in 1984 Congress passed the National Organ Transplant Act, which prohibits payment to organ donors to increase the supply of organs for transplantation. Kaserman and Barnett show that Congress’s prescription of a market for organ procurement has been an abject policy failure.

This was a book discussed in an economics class I took at Auburn University and I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Kaserman come and give a lecture on the topics covered in this book before he passed away due to the kidney problems he suffered. His lecture and this book changed my way of thinking and really opened my eyes to the way organ donation is conducted in America. After reading this book I went directly to the DMV and registered as a donor.

A quite complcated book...I'm not sure that I agree with the message, but something should be done to obtain organ donors. I agree that altruism does not work in America for the reason that people are generally ignorant to what being a donor entails, or just don't care as is shown in the England studies. My feeling is that general rules and rights need to be changed to make up for the huge deficit. For one thing, obtaining a drivers license should guarantee the person as a donor unless there is a definite objection. It works in Spain and Austria and Belgium.
