When you decide to donate an organ that could make someone normal again, you are actually giving the gift of life, even after you are long gone. Organ donation is the preservation of organs after someone's death, and a cause supported by many people around the world.
Read on to find out everything there is to know about organ donation!
- What is Organ Donation?: Organ donation is the process of pledging your organs through recognised institutions, so that the same may be used after your demise. This pledge usually allows the transplant of healthy organs as well as tissue that can be used to benefit someone who has been going through life without the said organs or without properly functioning ones. While some donations like the kidney as well as some part of the lungs can be done while the donor is still living, most of these transplants happen after the person's death.
- Types of Donation: There are three ways in which one can donate organs. The first is brain stem method where the person's brain activity has stopped due to an injury. In such a case, the heart and other organs may still be working due to life support system like a ventilator. The next method is circulatory death where a cardiac arrest gives rise to the complete loss of function in one's heart and lungs, which can lead to a state where the person cannot be revived. The third kind is living donation like kidney transplant or a small section of one's liver or lungs.
- Importance of Organ Donation: The importance of organ donation cannot be stressed enough. This potentially lifesaving act can help in bringing back someone's sight or give them a heart that beats normally. With organ donation like kidney transplant, one will not need to go through dialysis again. Also, organ donation can save much time, money and effort in painful treatments and give the person a whole new lease of life. It is also important because it ensures that the vital organs are used by a needy person even after the death of the donor.
- Importance of Physical Health: The physical health of the person is important in such cases because the donation should not have negative implications for the wellbeing of the patient. Through a system of donor assessment, the donor is checked for infections and other ailments including HIV so that the same are not passed on to the patient.
- Organs that you can donate: Starting from the eyes to the kidney, lungs, heart, pancreas, intestines, bones, as well as bone marrow and even the skin and corneas, one can donate a number of organs. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Adult orthodontics---An insight
A few decades ago, orthodontic treatment was not frequently undertaken for adult patients but the number of adult patients nowadays receiving orthodontic treatment is increasing day by day. Most of the adults (18-40 years) who have not received orthodontic treatment as children or young adults due to financial restrictions or lack of awareness, now want to seek orthodontic treatment as they have become financially independent and are more aware of their looks. Their main goal is to correct their malocclusion, their smile, appearance & their quality of life.
Adult orthodontics demand additional skills to bring out the best possible outcome in most of the cases as most adults in both the younger & older groups fairly understand what they want as outcome of the treatment. Although buccal fixed metallic braces are efficient treatment systems, these motivated adult patients have some concerns about the appearance of conventional orthodontic braces. The demand for an invisible orthodontic treatment comes from adults who are concerned about the reaction of others to obvious orthodontic treatment either due to peer pressure, demands of their working atmosphere other constrains. Nowadays, there are 3 main options for adults to undergo orthodontic treatment:
- Ceramic braces: These are brackets made of tooth colored material placed on the outer side of teeth. They do mask the metallic smile of course, but these are not totally invisible.
- Lingual orthodontics: These braces are placed on the inner side of teeth, so these are not visible at all but patient need more adjustment time in them due to the close proximity of tongue. These are more technically difficult for the orthodontist to use efficiently orthodontists do need to have special training to master this technique with a long steep learning curve.
- Clear aligners: These are transparent appliances which are snapped over teeth for treatment. These appliances are efficient effective for non-extraction treatment with mild to moderate malocclusions but still have a long way to go before they can be successfully used to treat difficult malocclusion cases. Further developments in technique technology may overcome these limitations.
- Summarizing, it can be said that treatment options are numerous. Depending upon the patient’s expectations as well as the financial aspect complications of the case, your orthodontist will suggest you the treatment mode best suited for you. However, its absolutely necessary that patient realizes that the skill competence of a trained certified orthodontist is the most important factor in the success of the treatment.

I am 28years old. I have a breast pain on left side. It is common for me before period. But now the left breast has been swollen than right one and has a pain. Last tym I have periods on 20th august. Is that normal?
Do you feel a slight twinge of pain in your breasts whenever you jump or try to reach something in a top cabinet or whenever you get a hug? annoying isn’t it?
This might also become a reason of great concern as you may get dreadful thoughts about breast cancer. But do not worry. Breast pain is a quite common problem faced by women at least once during their lifetime and alone it is not usually a sign of breast cancer.
Breast pain (or mastalgia) is characterized by any feeling of discomfort, pain, or pressure in either of the breasts. These discomforts can become as severe as an intense, ardent pain that radiates throughout the chest and they might interfere with your daily activities. While there are several possible reasons for feeling pain in the breast, the most common one is hormonal imbalance, particularly during puberty, pregnancy, post-partum – including breastfeeding – and menopause.
Mastalgia can also be broadly divided into cyclical and non-cyclical causes. Cyclical mastalgia (breast pain) usually occurs because of hormonal fluctuations and the intensity of pain varies according to the menstrual cycle. On the other hand, non-cyclical mastalgia usually occurs because of musculoskeletal causes and the pain persists all throughout the month.
Cyclical breast pain:
1) Is more common and usually occurs about five days prior to the start of your period
2) It usually subsides after periods start
3) It usually resolves in women when they hit menopause
On the other hand, non-cyclical breast pain:
1) Is less frequent than cyclical
2) Has a shorter duration of symptoms
3) Usually affects one side and 50 percent of the pain tends to subside spontaneously
How to diagnose breast pain?
For the correct diagnosis and management of breast pain, it is important for the doctor to know certain points regarding the pain like:
1) Duration of pain
2) Location – restricted to one point or spread over the entire breast
3) Intensity of pain
4) Fluctuation in intensity of pain over a few days
5) Radiation of the pain – is the pain running to some other site from the breast
6) Is there a lump associated with the pain? usually, breast cancer does not lead to pain in the initial phases
7) What makes the pain better
8) What makes the pain worse
These facts along with clinical examination and an ultrasound/ mammography help the doctor in determining the cause of breast pain. The above-mentioned points can easily be maintained in a “pain diary”.
You can use this diary to record your pain and what you did to ease it each day. This will help your health care team understand your pain better.
This information will help your doctor in:
1) Assessing the cause of pain
2) Judging the response to therapy
So the next time you visit your doctor with complaints of breast pain, make sure you maintain a ‘pain diary’ so that your treatment can proceed smoothly.
As mentioned above, pain isn’t usually a sign of breast cancer but it’s better to talk to your doctor to rule out if anything serious. If your breast pain is sudden and accompanied by severe chest pain and numbness in your extremities, seek immediate medical attention. These symptoms can indicate a heart attack.
