‘Green corridors’ help rapid transport of organs


Indore: Giving a fresh lease of life to three patients, two ‘green corridors’ on Tuesday helped in rapid transportation of organs taken from a brain-dead patient in an Indore hospital in Madhya Pradesh.

A resident of Mahidpur in Ujjain district, Vishwas Joshi, 40, was declared brain-dead in Choithram Hospital here on Monday evening.

After his kin expressed their wish to donate his organs, a liver patient in Delhi and two kidney patients in Indore were shortlisted for transplantation on the basis of their blood group.

On Tuesday morning, after the needed organs were harvested, two corridors — one from the hospital to Indore airport and another to a nursing home in Greater Kailash area of the city — were created for their transportation.

Traffic on both routes was disrupted for only eight minutes during the whole process.
