A transplant is when we replace organs and tissues that do not work.
We have found information and done surveys and graphs in order to
What is a transplant?(Longer answer):
A transplant is when we replace organs or tissues that do not work
with ones that are healthy. Transplants are possible thanks to
Healthy organs and tissues come from people who choose to
donate part of their body to help someone else when they die.
Sometimes, the donor can still be alive, for example, in the case
of liver or kidney transplants.
What is the difference between transplants practiced in live patients
and in death patients?
That when your alive you only can donate organs that are duble and
When you are dead you can donate all your organs.
What are the most common transplants in the U.S.A ?
In 2013 there were more people who needed kidney transplants.
There is alot of difference between kidney transplants and the rest of the organs transplants.
The USA is the 7º country that more transplants has had
If you look at the graph you can see that each year the people need
more transplants. (Graphs can not be shown)
We think that each year there is more population This is why each
year it gets biger.
In this graph are people that we interviewd and their answers. (Graphs can not be shown)
In this graph you can see that there are more children and adults
that said yes. (Graphs can not be shown)
The people who said yes we think that its a very good opinion and
people who said no we think that its not a very good chooice.
We think that its good that some people say yes to donating
organs to other people because it helps people in need.
We learn about the most important transplants in the USA and
about working in group.
We think that thanks to this type of work we can learn more about
things of another country, we think that working about this
makes us realice that lots of people need us and that its good
learning about transplants.
Now you are saying that you don't want to donate but when
you need someone to donate for you, you will remember that day that
you said no and you will regret it.
Working together is better!
