Organ Preservation Systems, Cold Perfusion

Definition : Organ preservation systems that provide oxygenated cold perfusion to the organ. These systems typically include a free standing or mobile unit (e.g., a cart) consisting of a combination of a small refrigerator, a continuous pump, and a dual chamber container (one chamber is intended for the organ and the other chamber includes a membrane oxygenator, a heat exchanger, and a bubble trap). The dual-chamber container, after filling the lower chamber with ice, may be used as a portable unit for transportation if used in combination with the continuous pump. Cold perfusion organ preservation systems that include an oxygenator are mainly intended to preserve kidneys, but may be also used for other organs such as liver, pancreas, and heart. These systems are used to keep organs viable for a period of time (a few hours) in a healthcare facility while waiting for the transplantation procedure and/or for transportation of organs between facilities (e.g., from the donor place to the recipient hospital).
