Visu canvasses for organ donation

The veteran actor shares his experience and difficulties associated with dialysis

Quote:
Award-winning playwright and film personality Visu spoke movingly on the subject of organ donation at a gathering for donors and recipients hosted by Kauvery Hospital at Hotel Sangam here on Sunday.

“I have heard applause for actors like Sivaji, Kamal, and Rajini, but the applause these doctors are getting is the most heartening, because they have really been life-savers,” said the actor, who has been on dialysis for the past one-and-a-half years and who has also survived throat cancer.

Sunday’s event, held to observe World Kidney Day, saw the launch of a renal disease-themed mobile phone application in Tamil, an organ donor registry through donor cards, and the ‘Kauvery Kidney Care’ manual by the hospital, which has centres in Tiruchi, Chennai-based non-profit transplant organisation Mohan Foundation and the Rotary Club of Tiruchi – Elite were co-hosts of the evening.

Water bottles were distributed with the catchy slogan ‘Ka, Ka, Ka, Po’ (‘Kallum Karainthu Kaanamal Pogum’ which translates to even stones will dissolve and disappear) to educate the public on the importance of keeping the kidneys hydrated.

Dr. S. Manivannan, Joint Managing Director, Kauvery Hospital, joined the transplant team comprising Dr. (Ms.) S. Senthil Kumar, transplant surgeon, S. Kandasamy (nephrologist), T. Rajarajan (nephrologist) and N. Karthikeyan (urology consultant) on stage, where a kidney donor, two kidney recipients and an eye transplant recipient were introduced to the public.

“We have noticed that the bonding between donor and recipient increases after the operation, especially if they are close relatives,” said Dr. Rajarajan. “Usually it is mothers who volunteer first to donate their kidney to their ailing children.”

Visu held the floor for the concluding part of the evening as he detailed his battle with throat cancer in 2010 and of late renal dysfunction that requires regular dialysis.

“I used to smoke at least 60 cigarettes a day from 1961 to 2010. It was only when I was diagnosed with throat cancer did I realise how tough the treatment was going to be. I was confined to my home for nine months. My voice, my trademark, went away. It was as if Visu had been erased from this world,” the actor and talk show host recalled.

“Though I was able to beat back cancer, I have been suffering due to kidney disease for the past year and a half. Dialysis is arduous. It doesn’t allow me to travel like before. I refused to consider a transplant, probably because I was not well-informed about the subject.

But now, after meeting so many people in Tiruchi who have recovered after receiving a kidney, either from a live donor or a cadaver, I’m considering opting for a transplant too,” he said.




Trichy is already in 3rd Place in TN with respect to number of Organ Transplants are done :)

Organs of farmer harvested---Liver Transplant done at Cethar Hospitals and Eyes at AG Eye Hospital

Quote:
Doctors at a private hospital here harvested the vital organs of 60-year-old man, who was declared brain dead after suffering severe brain injury in an accident, and sent them to various hospitals for transplant on Saturday.

R. Manoharan, an agriculturist who was also running a voluntary organisation in Nagapattinam, met with an accident on Thanjavur-Nagapattinam highway and was admitted to the Government Hospital in Thanjavur on Wednesday. Investigations revealed he had suffered severe brain stem injury and was declared brain dead on Friday.

Mr. Manoharan, who was the son of Nagai Rengasamy, a freedom fighter, had registered his name for donating his body after death. As per his wish, his son Dr. Prabhu, a casualty medical officer, at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital in the city and his daughters, approached the Cethar Hospitals to retrieve the organs.

The patient was shifted to the city hospital and his liver, kidneys, and eyes were harvested. The liver was used for a patient with end-stage liver disease requiring transplant at Cethar Hospital.
The kidneys were sent to Meenakshi Hospital in Thanjavur and Kidney Care Centre, Madurai.

Both the eyes were sent to AG Eye Hospital, Tiruchi.

A Singapore-based non-profit organisation has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Tamilnadu Government to launch a 3-year project aimed at enhancing maternal and child health services in the state.

The project seeks to address gaps in healthcare practice to tackle the maternal and infant mortality in parts of Tamilnadu like Trichy and Chengalpattu, said Singapore International Foundation (SIF) Senior Manager Volunteer Cooperation Programmes Division Elaine Ng.

"We have recently signed the MoU, we have started initial activities already, we will roll out the full programme very soon...," she said. The foundation is also in talks with government of Karnataka for a similar project in the state, she added. The project is designed to engage and share knowledge with the Health and Family Welfare Department of Tamilnadu, the hospitals and primary health centers, to upgrade the antenatal and maternal child health services in the government healthcare institutes.

Also, enhancing management of obstetric and neonatal emergencies; enhancing specific management and leadership skills and practices to support clinical outcomes such as QC (quality control) framework, HR management and continued education for healthcare workers, are part of project, they said.

The project aims to train more than 600 health care professionals, senior health nurses and midwives from at more than 25 institutions and primary health care centers in Tamilnadu.

Motor Ambulance Scheme to be Introduced in Trichy soon


Quote:
சென்னையை தொடர்ந்து திருச்சி, மதுரை மற்றும் கோவையில் ‘மோட்டார் சைக்கிள் ஆம்புலன்ஸ்’ திட்டம் விரைவில் அறிமுகப்படுத்த திட்டமிடப்பட்டுள்ளது.

‘மோட்டார் சைக்கிள் ஆம்புலன்ஸ்
‘108’ அவசரகால சேவையை அனைவரும் விரைவாக பெறும் உயரிய நோக்கில், அவசரகால முதலுதவிக்காக ரூ.70 லட்சம் மதிப்பீட்டில் 41 இருசக்கர வாகனங்களின் ஆம்புலன்ஸ் சேவையை, பொதுமக்களின் பயன்பாட்டிற்காக முதல்-அமைச்சர் ஜெயலலிதா கடந்த மாதம் 8-ந் தேதி தலைமைச் செயலகத்தில் கொடியசைத்து தொடங்கிவைத்தார்.

அவசரகால முதல் உதவிக்கான 41 இருசக்கர வாகனங்களில், 31 இருசக்கர வாகனங்கள் மோட்டார் சைக்கிள் வடிவிலும், 10 இருசக்கர வாகனங்கள் ஸ்கூட்டர் வடிவிலும் அமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன.

ஆடவர் மட்டுமின்றி, பெண் அவசரகால மருத்துவ உதவியாளரும் இயக்கும் வண்ணம் இவ்வாகனங்கள் வடிவமைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன.

600 பேருக்கு முதல் உதவி
இந்த திட்டம் தொடங்கி நேற்றுடன் ஒரு மாதம் நிறைவு பெற்றுள்ள நிலையில், இதுவரை 600 பேருக்கு முதல் உதவி அளிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. கும்பகோணம் மகாமகம் திருவிழாவின் போது 12 நாட்களுக்கு மோட்டார் சைக்கிள் ‘ஆம்புலன்ஸ்’ சேவை பொதுமக்களுக்கு அளிக்கப்பட்டது.

இருதயம், மூச்சுத்திணறல், ரத்தகொதிப்பு, சர்க்கரை வியாதிகள் உள்ளிட்ட பல்வேறு நோய்களை கொண்ட 330 பக்தர்களுக்கு உரிய நேரத்தில் முதல் உதவி அளிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.

இதுகுறித்து மாநில தலைமை ‘108 ஆம்புலன்ஸ்’ இயக்குனர் பி.விஜயகுமார் கூறியதாவது:

87.3 சதவீதம் சாலை விபத்துகள்
87.3 சதவீதம் சாலை விபத்துகளில் சிக்குபவர்களுக்கு ‘108 ஆம்புலன்ஸ்’ சேவை கிடைப்பதன் மூலம் உயிர்கள் காப்பாற்றப்பட்டு வருகிறது. மீதம் உள்ள 12.7 சதவீதம் விபத்துகளில் சிக்குபவர்களுக்கு போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடி உள்ளிட்ட பல்வேறு காரணங்களால் ‘ஆம்புலன்ஸ்’ சேவை கிடைப்பதில் சிக்கல் இருந்து வருகிறது.

போக்குவரத்து நெருக்கடியான இடங்களில் நடக்கும் விபத்துகளில் சிக்கும் அனைவருக்கும் ‘ஆம்புலன்ஸ்’ சேவை கிடைக்க வேண்டும் என்ற உயரிய நோக்கத்தில் சென்னையில் மோட்டார் சைக்கிள் ‘ஆம்புலன்ஸ்’ சேவை அறிமுகப்படுத்தப்பட்டு உள்ளது.

கோவை, மதுரை, திருச்சி
சென்னையில் கோயம்பேடு, அசோக்பில்லர், மயிலாப்பூர் உள்ளிட்ட கூடுதலாக மக்கள் மற்றும் வாகனங்கள் வரும் 20 இடங்கள் தேர்வு செய்யப்பட்டுள்ளன. இந்த இடங்களில் விரைவில் இருசக்கர மோட்டார் ‘ஆம்புலன்ஸ்’ சேவை தொடங்க திட்டமிடப்பட்டு உள்ளது.

சென்னையில் இவற்றின் பயன்பாடு நன்றாக இருப்பதால், திருச்சி, மதுரை மற்றும் கோவை ஆகிய 3 மாநகராட்சிகளில் விரைவில் தலா 2 அல்லது 3 மோட்டார் சைக்கிள் ஆம்புலன்ஸ் சேவையை முதலில் தொடங்க உள்ளோம். அப்பகுதிகளில் தேவை மற்றும் வரவேற்பை பொறுத்து அதிக எண்ணிக்கையில் மோட்டார் சைக்கிள் ஆம்புலன்ஸ்களை இயக்க உள்ளோம். இந்த சிறப்பு சேவை மூலம், பல்லாயிரக்கணக்கான உயிர்கள் காப்பாற்றப்பட்டு வருகிறது

இவ்வாறு அவர் கூறினார்.
