How long can donated organ last outside the body?

'Lung In A Box' Keeps Organs Breathing Before Transplants

The company TransMedics in Andover has developed an experimental device that keeps hearts and lungs alive while they're transported from the donor to the recipient.

Known as the Organ Care System, the device circulates blood through the lungs and pumps oxygen through the lobes. So the lungs can breathe outside the body.

The machine isn't yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the U.S. But eight hospitals around the country are testing it out in a clinical trial.

I recently started to re-study anatomy and physiology and pathophysiology. The more I studied the more I started to question my atheism.

There are so many different processes going on in the human body and they all have to work in tandem in order for one to live from day to day. I have started to feel that it was by design and not just mere coincidence.

I used to have a faith but not a deep conviction. I have always been turned off by blind faith having watched many patients suffer because of their beliefs. Now I am starting to see that there is a God and maybe its time to start to have a relationship with him.
