First time in America, The heart stopped working, giving oxygen, blood and electrolyte and again start beats of heart


First time in America, The heart stopped working, giving oxygen, blood and electrolyte and again start beats of heart



Duke is the first American hospital to be transplanted by cardiac death from a cardiac death.
The technique was first devised at the Royal Papworth Hospital in the UK in 2015, the Royal Hospital has so far extradited more than 75 such hearts.

 Doctors at Duke University in American have succeeded in beating the dead man's heart again. The technique was first devised at the Royal Papworth Hospital in the UK in 2015 and now Duke has become the first American hospital to successfully transplant a heart from a deceased cardiac death (SCD) into another person's body.

In fact, after SCD, the person's heart stopped functioning and blood flow to the body stopped. After this, the doctors beat the deceased's heart again by giving him blood, oxygen and electrolytes. Prior to the transplant, the team filmed a heartbeat video that went viral on social media.


Heart gets little oxygen after death


According to Doctor Jacob Schroder, a member of Duke University's surgery team, the brain dead person's heart was extradited, with the rest of his body also functioning. Time plays the most prominent role in organ donation .As soon as the person dies. The supply of oxygen stops. This causes the tissue to end faster and reduce the heartbeat. When the heart stops stopping after natural death, there is still a small amount of oxygen reaching the heart.

This way  heart beats again


As doctor Jacob Schroder pointed out, the heart is kept in an extremely cold environment to protect against infection. This is an organ that can function outside the body for 4 to 6 hours. For this, the heart was removed from the body of the deceased and immediately connected it to the tube connected to the machine. The machine supplied blood, oxygen and electrolytes to the heart. He immediately started beating. This technique is called perfusion. It was first used in the UK in 2015. Since then, the Royal Hospital has extradited more than 75 such hearts that had stopped circulating blood in the body.

Heart's first extradition took place in 1967


He was extradited to South Africa in 1967 for the first time in the world. A year later, doctors at Stanford University succeeded in transplanting hearts in the US. Since then, more than 3400 heart transplants have taken place in the US .Although extradition of the heart is normal now, but its availability is still a challenge.

Less than 45% of people in the US register organ donation


Not only in America, a large number of liver, kidney donates are donated by organ donors in the world, but the heart donor is still very less. In the US alone, less than 45% of people register themselves for organ donation.
