Heart in a Box Saves Lives

Rob Evans needs a new heart.  He is like thousands of others who are waiting for a new heart via a heart transplant.  But one thing is different with the heart he is about to receive; a breakthrough technology has kept the donor heart beating in a special box designed to keep the heart beating so that it keeps its viability longer and makes the transplant process more likely to be successful.

Meet “Heart in a Box”

It only makes sense that a heart kept warm and beating with blood would be in better shape than a heart put on ice.  See the amazing heart in a box below in this excellent video from UCLA Medical.
