Transplant Wait List Watch 2016 #1

OPTN 3-18-2016

 

Today, March 18, 2016, OPTN’s website states there are 78,104 *active* folks on the transplant wait list.

The total of active and inactive folks totals 121,424. Remember: inactive candidates/registrants can’t undergo a transplant even if an organ becomes available. So, the wait list is artificially inflated by 35.6% 

Today’s stat is a decrease of 1.2% over the prior check-in on October 19, 2015, and an increase of 7.98% from our first check-in on April 29, 2011.
