Hyderabad: Brain dead man gives new life to 8 persons | Published: 15th September 2020 | Posted Date: Tuesday 15th September 2020 10:50 PM

Hyderabad: The family members of a 36-year-old bank manager, Kanumuri Seetharamaraju, who was declared brain dead by attending neurologists at Global Hospitals, Lakdikapul, have donated the organs of the deceased under the State-run Jeevandan organ donation initiative.

On Monday evening, the Hyderabad traffic police provided a green channel for quick transportation of the live donor heart from Global Hospital, Lakdikapul to Care Hospitals, Banjara Hills, a distance of 3.6 kilometres that was covered in four minutes between 9.32 pm and 9.36 pm, Jeevandan officials said.

The Hyderabad traffic police also provided a green channel to transport live donor liver from Global Hospitals to KIMS Hospital, Secunderabad, a distance of 6.7 kilometres that was covered in six minutes between 9.47 pm and 9.53 pm, officials said.

On Friday, September 11, Kanumuri Seetharamaraju, a bank manager in Union Bank, Solapur, Maharashtra, was returning back to Hyderabad in a cab. At around 2.30 pm, the private cab was hit by a truck in the outskirts of Solapur city. The bank employee was rushed to a local private hospital and given emergency treatment. With no improvement in health condition, Seetharamaraju was shifted and admitted to Global Hospitals, Lakdikapul at around 3 pm on Sunday, September 13.

After nearly 28 hours of critical care including ICU treatment, at around 1.35 pm on Monday, the neuro-physicians at Global Hospitals declared Seetharamaraju as brain dead due to severe head injury.

A series of grief counselling sessions were conducted by Jeevandan organ donation coordinators and hospitals officials for the family members and other relatives of the bank employee. Consent to donate organs was given by his wife Naga Swetha and other family members.

The surgeons retrieved two kidneys, two corneas, liver, heart and two lungs (in all eight organs), which were sent to other transplant centres, based on the organ donation guidelines framed by Jeevandan committee.

Organ donations pick up pace

After a lull due to Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown restrictions, the pace of organ donation and transplantation has picked up pace in Telangana State. Thanks to the initiative of Jeevandan officials, in the last few days, transplant centres i.e. private hospitals in Hyderabad managed to retrieve 13 donor organs and distribute organs based on the guidelines to needy patients. In July and August, authorities could not manage to take up organ donation due to Covid-19 and lockdown restrictions.
