Follow @wcbiweather on facebook, twitter, instagram, and the wcbi news app this week in health talk with baptist we've been discussing the importance of becoming an organ donor..

Tonight we look at the organ donation process..

Hi i'm shelly kidder, a nurse in the education department at baptist memorial hospital golden triangle and a first responder for the mid-south transplant foundation.

Tonight we will be discussing how the transplant process works.

Even though millions of people have registered to be an organ donor, very few die in a way that lets them share the gift of life.

Let's look at how the process works.

The process of donation most often begins with your consent by registering in your state.

In order to be a deceased donor, a person has to die in a very specific way or is put on artificial support to keep blood with oxygen flowing to the organs.

After a series of tests to determine brain death, the hospital notifies the local organ procurement organization or opo.

The opo searches to see if the deceased is a registered donor.

If so, that will serve as legal consent.

If the deceased is not registered and there is no other legal consent such as a notation on the driver's license, the next of kin will be asked.

After authorization, a medical evaluation takes place and the matching process begins, with a search of the national database of all patients in the us waiting for a transplant.

While the search for a matching recipient is under way, the deceased donor's organs are maintained on artificial support.

A transplant surgical team replaces the medical team.

The surgical team removes the organs and tissues from the donor's body in an operating room, and they are transported to the hospitals of the intended recipients.

The transplant operation takes place after the transport team arrives at the hospital with the new organ.

The recipient may already be in the operating room awaiting the arrival of the lifesaving organ.

If all goes as planned, the organ donor has possibly impacted the lives of up to eight people with his or her gift of life.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist.

Bobbie's going to take over the ropes here.

I also don't know what these are.

These come from the som select blind six.

They give you six wines each month to let you blind taste, already covered.

So at the end i'm going to let you open it up.

So we have no idea what she's about to pour.

Do you know what it is ty?

The secret is that you're actually pretty good at these tastings.

Well every time is a challenge.

A lot of steps to go through more of a process of elimination.

This is a subscription to help sommeliers blind taste which is useful in my market.

Which by the way congratulations.

You just took a big exam in south carolina and passed.

When bobbie said blind taste i thought we were going to be blind folded.

We're going to guess what we might taste and what the grape is.

Look he's a professional swirler.

You can tell with the color is kind of straw, yellow, so that's going to narrow it down the type of variatal.

I let barbara get into the details i just go by the texture and the smell.

I'm going to throw this in the camp of it can be charonday, pinot gris..

I think it's a riesling but that's my guess.

I'm jump to the conclusion.

Honestly it smells like chardonay.

Now we have red one.

Again y'all we have no idea what these are.

Chefs are just naturally good at smelling things.

Pinot noir, gamay... it's light in color.

It's very juicy.

I've had this wine before.

I have had this exact wine.

It'll be one of our executive producers favorites i'll tell you that.

We'll go with ty on the first one and bobbie on the second.

That's open up the select.

In there, it'll show you the answers you're looking for number three and four.

Chenin blanc.

And you guys won't believe this bobbie was right on the second one too.

It's a pinot noir from santa barbara.

I swear i had this wine.

I sent this to you.

It's tyler.

It's ironic cause you can't get this here.

See tyler it was meant for you to be here.
