New machine 'could quadruple' transplants

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"The number of heart and lung transplants could quadruple thanks to a "reanimation" machine used in a pioneering operation, a hospital says.

"The device, developed at Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridge, managed to pump oxygenated blood into both organs in a world-first procedure.

"The machine can revitalise deteriorating organs allowing "donation after circulatory death" (DCD).

"Hospital surgeon Pedro Catarino said it was like "recharging the batteries"."
