I truly believe someone can improve his/her own life by improving his/her knowledge. Since i was in medical school and later on continued my training that led me to become a transplant specialist, I found one recurrent problem that impacted medical results : Patient Education. I found over and over patients run into serious medical problems because they did not know enough about their illness. In the transplant field this lack of education can even be life threatening. This is why I wrote this book. This book's aim is to provide you with education and knowledge on the common events, complications, precautions,etc after a kidney transplant. The ultimate goal is to help you succeed after a kidney transplant.This educational material includes five main sections and there is no set order in which you can start.SECTION I: THE BASICS BEFORE KIDNEY TRANSPLANT: Introduction about how the kidneys works and what their main functions are, the usual labs that doctors use to evaluate kidney problems.SECTION II: FIRST 100 DAYS AFTER KIDNEY TRANSPLANT: Day by day explanation following transplant. We concentrate on important events that impact patient and graft’s survival. We provide helpful insights on important topics daily; most often in chronological occurrence.SECTION III: HOT TOPICS IN KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION: A list of more than 100 topics is explained putting emphasis on prevention.SECTION IV: GERIATRIC ISSUES AND THE ROLE OF PALLIATIVE AND HOSPICE CARE: Here we discuss, important considerations for older adults with kidney disease, what happens when a transplant fails and the role of palliative / hospice care.SECTION V: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS AFTER KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION: A list of Q & A that have been carefully selected from staff with several years of experience in the transplant field.SECTION VI: WHAT LIVING KIDNEY DONORS NEED TO KNOW: We discuss important current aspects of kidney living donation and provide important tips to living donors.I hope you enjoy reading this book and that it helps you understand more about how a kidney transplant impacts recipient’s life. My wish is that this book will help you gain the most of this precious gift (transplant).Fidel Barrantes, M.D.

TIFFANY BLUE NURSE GIFTS - We harvest our necklaces from only the finest California Red Wood Forest old-growth necklace trees, which are free-range, grain-fed and naturally fertilized only with sparkly unicorn droppings. Our studio is smoke, pet, radioactive, and Britney Spears music-free, and we speak in soft, gentle tones around our mugs so as not to alarm them during the printing and birthing process. Our heat presses were hand-crafted in the 15th century by Venetian squid ink pasta makers (who had lots better to do since black squid are camouflaged by the famously muddy waters), using wood reclaimed from New England red brick mansions. How they did this, since they were in Venice and the barns were in New England, we don't know, but that's what they told us. Actually, all of our necklaces are printed in the United States with non-toxic, earth-friendly inks and provide hard working Americans job stability along with the ability to make you laugh and smile. The printing is permanent and will not come off even after numerous washings, as we hope your smile will be also after your purchase. Your satisfaction is our mission, we guarantee our products. Absolutely love your order or contact us and we'll make it right. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
Why has Egypt, a pioneer of organ transplantation, been reluctant to pass a national organ transplant law for more than three decades? This book analyzes the national debate over organ transplantation in Egypt as it has unfolded during a time of major social and political transformationincluding mounting dissent against a brutal regime, the privatization of health care, advances in science, the growing gap between rich and poor, and the Islamic revival. Sherine Hamdy recasts bioethics as a necessarily political project as she traces the moral positions of patients in need of new tissues and organs, doctors uncertain about whether transplantation is a good” medical or religious practice, and Islamic scholars. Her richly narrated study delves into topics including current definitions of brain death, the authority of Islamic fatwas, reports about the mismanagement of toxic waste predisposing the poor to organ failure, the Egyptian black market in organs, and more. Incorporating insights from a range of disciplines, Our Bodies Belong to God sheds new light on contemporary Islamic thought, while challenging the presumed divide between religion and science, and between ethics and politics.
