Abstracts
The comprehension of death, confidence in diagnosing brain
death and confidence in the health system have a very
important role in a person’s decision regarding organ donation.
The results were obtained by statistical analysis of a
questionnaire. When making the decision about organ donation around 30% of the examinees are concerned about the
insufficiently exact definition of brain death, while 27,8% fear
the possibility of life being deliberately taken with the purpose of
organ selling, and 14,5% are concerned about what will
happen to them after death. With regard to religious
orientation, the Jewish and Muslims more often express concern
because of the insufficiently exact definition of brain death;
Roman Catholics, Orthodox Christians and atheists are
concerned about the doctor not struggling for their life in the
case of a coma or similar health problem, while Protestants and
atheists were more commonly worried about the possibility of
deliberately taking life with the purpose of organ selling, and
Jews because of the fear of what would happen to them after
death. The diagnosis of brain death and the conditions which
have to be fulfilled in that case, have to restitute order and
safety in organ transplantation from the deceased person and
also very important is the task of public education about organ
transplantation.
