Organ Transportation Gets an Upgrade

The days of television medical dramas consisting of transporting organs in a ratty cooler filled with ice are no more. The TransMedics Organ Care System is the latest and greatest technology used to preserve organs while being transferred to a new body. It works by pumping warm, oxygenated, nutrient rich blood throughout the organ while on the journey to its new owner. This helps prevent any kind of organ damage or deterioration that may occur during transportation when the organ happens to be missing the body it used to be housed in.
