Green corridors have always been a critical part of many successful cases of organ donation and transplantation. Recently, twin green corridors gave a fresh lease of life to three patients in Madhya Pradesh.
A resident of Mahidpur in Ujjain district, Vishwas Joshi, was declared brain-dead in Choithram Hospital. After obtaining consent 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.
‘Two green corridors were created in Indore to transport a liver and a kidney harvested from a 42-year-old donor from a hospital to the airport within 10 minutes.’
After the 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.
"Two green corridors (freeways that scan red lights) were created. A 13-km-long from a private hospital to the (city) airport by which the liver was transported in 7.5 minutes. Another 10-km-long corridor was laid to a private hospital by which a kidney was carted out in 7 minutes," said Sanjay Dubey, Divisional Commissioner.
