keep the heart in a box! ❤️
Here’s a donor heart perfused with the Organ care system, which keeps it warm, perfused with oxygenated blood and functioning as they would inside the body while they are transported for transplant instead of putting them on ice as has been the standard for years!!
Heart transplantation is the gold standard treatment for end-stage heart failure.
One of the limiting factors of maximizing donor heart utilization is distance between the donor hospital and the recipient hospital.
Traditionally, the donor hearts are harvested and transported in a cold storage.
Prolonged cold ischemia time is known to be one of the risk factors for primary graft failure and early mortality. Therefore, donor hearts have been allocated to the recipient hospitals at the distance at which transport does not take long especially for recipients with mechanical circulatory support or from marginal donors.
An Organ Care System is the only ex vivo heart perfusion platform with warm, oxygenated, and nutrient-enriched donor blood. With the organ care system, warm oxygenated blood is pumped into the aorta, perfusing the coronary arteries.
The coronary sinus flow then passes through the tricuspid valve and is ejected by the right ventricle into a pulmonary artery cannula, and returned to the blood reservoir.
The perfusate includes insulin, antibiotics methylprednisolone, sodium bicarbonate, multivitamins, and fresh donor blood. Pulsatile flow is generated by a diaphragmatic pump. The system shortens the cold ischemia time by maintaining the heart in warm perfused state during transport and might increase safe retrieval distance, decrease the incidence of primary graft failure, and potentially allow for increase in number of heart transplantation.
Long road ahead...
Sometimes life can be very lonely and it is a long road ahead of us. That road might be all on your own.
But, you can do it....
You can do what is best for you .
It’s not selfish. Your the only one who is going to look out after you.
Fuck the nay sayers! Their not living your life. If they are a naysayer their negative. Get them out of your life.
You are assume! You can do it!
Have a blessed day everyone.💁♀️
A green corridor is a demarcated, cleared out special road route created for an ambulance that enables retrieved organ or organs meant for transplant to reach the destined hospital.
The increase in the numbers of green corridors shows that the process of organ donation and transplantation has become a lot more efficient.
From merely allocating the organs within the city, the Zonal Transplant Coordination Centres are ensuring that the organs are utilised in the best possible way by reaching out to other cities and States depending on the availability of recipients
When a patient is declared brain dead and his family consents to an organ donation, the availability of a recipient is first checked within the city, State, western region and then nationally
Green corridors require a concentrated effort from transplant coordinators, local police, traffic police and airport staff
Green corridors require a concentrated effort from transplant coordinators, local police, traffic police and airport staff.
Experts say that awareness of the general public towards green corridors is also important.
The donor institute has to coordinate with different State police authorities, airport authorities, airport security, Central Industrial Security Force and the recipient institute, all within the possible shortest duration to keep the organ viable.
The Unified Traffic and Transportation Infrastructure (Planning and Engineering) Centre approved the Integrated Transit Corridor Development and Street Network or Connectivity Plan for the Rohtak Road-NH-10 corridor.
studies suggest that the shorter the wait between harvest and transplant, the better the odds are of the surgery being successful.

Oh oui mon petit chat... L’histoire de Juju, c’est l’histoire d’une jeune femme qui aima tellement, tellement, que son cœur ne fût plus assez suffisant pour tout enfermer. Il lui fallut un nouveau cœur, pour continuer d’aimer, encore plus fort. 💕
