Help Pitt Researchers Keep Organs Alive for Transplantation
A new system for organ preservation based on machine perfusion with a cell free oxygen carrier solution at subnormothermic temperatures provides effective oxygenation to the organ even though itís outside of the body, a process which alleviates the damage that comes with prolonged storage on ice. Today, researchers want you to join their transplant team by visiting engage.pitt.edu/organicu and making a gift to support this important life-saving work.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Wound Healing
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a type of treatment in which patients enter a chamber and in that chamber they are kept at a higher than normal pressure and they are allowed to breathe pure oxygen. This results in a much higher than normal oxygen concentration in their blood, and that increased oxygen gets out to their tissues.
