Since everything in our body is made up of cells, any injury or disease placed upon it will definitely affect its job, and our bodily organs do serve a specific function, some more critical to survival than others. An example of this is the heart, which keeps us alive, it is definitely more important than the sex organs which you can survive without if it ever needs to be removed, although many would disagree with that one, you can get the point. There are several factors to consider when looking at the potential final outcome after an injury or a disease affects the cells of the organs.
- The age of the patient will play a big role in whether the problem will progress or not. Younger people usually recover from injuries and sickness faster. Those approaching their senior years recover at a much slower rate.
- The degree of damage on the cells, tissues, and organsgives a hint of how the body will react to its recovery or failure. The type of disease should also be determined.
- The financial factor is a huge consideration. The family’s ability to pay for the treatment may determine whether the patient lives or dies. In today’s world, everything has a price and hospitals are all too willing to let you go if you can’t pay for your medical bills.
So, it is the correct balance of all these factors that may determine whether the patient endures a slow death through organ failure or live on to have a full life.
