Heat Control and Sensing during Electromagnetic Recovery of Cryopreserved Large Organs
It has long been recognised that a nation-wide system of banks in which human organs could be stored in readiness for implantation would substantially enhance health care delivery. Research efforts directed to transforming this desired capability into a reality have focused on investigating techniques by which organs can be satisfactorily received, typed, stored for extended periods, and then rapidly recovered for implantation. Satisfactory techniques for organ receipt and typing are generally available, but much research is still needed in the areas of organ storage and recovery.
