Abstract:

Considering scarcity of human organ for transplantation, it is important to make sure that, every available organ is transplanted without wasting it. It gives better life for someone who is waiting for it. Organ from brain-dead patient is a major source of organs. So, it is important to monitor and maintain the health of the organ of a brain-dead patient while his heart is still beating. A centralized system to monitor and alert about the health of the organ is best suited solution to make sure organ is well kept till it is transplanted. This paper gives an approach based on Health Level 7,Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (HL7 FHIR) for such a system which is centralized and uses new age technologies to make sure physiological parameters of organ from brain dead patient are monitored automatically and alerts are provided to the care givers in case there is any deviation of the monitored parameters.
