Which Organs Can You Donate & Still Live? - Anatomy Physiology

By Michelle Taylor

With the furtherance of todays engineering science in both practice of medicine and scientific discipline, its not stunning to hear that we can survive and operate rather comfortably without several of our organs. Personally I prefer to remain all of mine. There are instances though that removal of an organ can actually save a life, for instance, if the organ is inflammatory. Many individuals ask so if you can survive and work without so many of the organs why did we have them in the first place? What Is More, they have their own arenas in our body.

Some organ removals are quite ordinary and some of us have already seen this. There is the tonsil and adenoid removal that seems to be a childhood occurrence rather than in adulthood. The function of the tonsils is to aid to forbid the invasion of bacteria from getting in through the mouth and nose, where it can sometime go on to do harm to some other areas of the body. The adenoids assist to prevent it from entering the nose. Sometimes these organs get so filled, and went sick from being incessantly inflamed so they cannot do their job correctly. So the most manageable answer was to plainly remove them. In todays medicine this is not done so freely as it once was. The human anatomy is being looked at much closer by many scientists.

The appendix is another organ that looks to be usually removed. If you were to talk to an individual who has had a binge of appendicitis ,before having the appendix removed, they will tell you they dont miss it all. Acute appendicitis is really really painful. The task of the appendix for some years was never clear. After all they were part of the human anatomy and thats all that seemed to matter. Now in recent studies medical scientists believe they may have found the very cause and role of the appendix.

They now believe that it is the appendix job to manufacture good bacteria that must be found in the gut. This good bacteria is very important to keeping absolute health and body procedures. There are instances when the gut gets exposed of the good bacteria, possibly through unwellness or disease. This is where the appendix gets in, to multiply the good bacterial so in re enters the gut and gets it back performing normally once again.

Some Other common organ removal, amongst women is the removal of the womb. At times in this procedure, the ovaries which are a region of this may be remain. Then on the other hand, at times the ovaries are taken out and the womb left. We all know that these are reproductive organs and formerly they have processed their aim, its no problem getting rid of them. This is not actually completely true. This organ play a big part when it comes to female hormones, and affects the menopausal stage a woman goes through.

So you can see that these are some of the more ordinary organs that can be quite well removed and our bodies still operate without them. Then also you can visualize that they all do serve a very important purpose. This raises an amusing question. Although we are well without them, would be all that more in even better health, if we still had them?
