Due to recent advances in medical field, organ transplant has become possible to patients with organ failure. In earlier times, this was not discovered and many people had died or suffered from kidney failure or arthritis problems or many other organ failures. This surgery has brought about a lot of changes in patients’ lives and has lit their life with good health and hopes. The organ transplants though becoming common, definitely costs a fortune. If you are on a break in your career, it is safe to possess a health insurance for unemployed so that you need not evacuate your money fully or end up in debt if you get victimized.

Organ transplant means replacing a damaged organ of a patient with a healthy organ of a donor. This donor may be a living person or a dead one. So far, as per the latest development in medical field, the organs that can be transplanted are heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, intestine, pancreas and thymus. Of all the above, kidney is the most widely transplanted organ. Tissue transplantation is also being done for bones, tendons, cornea, skin, heart valves and veins. Among the above, cornea and musculoskeletal grafts are the widely transplanted tissues.

There are certain problems that exist during transplantation of organs and tissues. The body that is receiving the organ has to accept the donor organ failing which the transplanted organ should be removed immediately. This can be reduced by analysing the donor-recipient match and through the use of immuno-suppressant drugs. The medical team from Japan has now successfully created a fully functional human liver from stem cells. The scientists achieved this by transplanting induced pluripotent stem(iPS) cells into the body of a mouse which grew into a small working human liver. The iPS cells which can be extracted from human adults has the capacity to develop into any body tissue.

Certain organs like liver does not show any symptoms before it fails almost fully. Under these circumstances, doctors may advise liver transplantation depending on the condition of the patient. If you encounter any such situation while on a career break, you should not be stupefied as this can happen to anyone. Possessing a health insurance for unemployed is a wise option. This insurance can be taken for period of 1 month upto 1 year.
