Donated organs could be preserved with new machine

Posted on

The University of Washington is participating in a study that seeks to test new technology to preserve donated organs.

UW is one of seven medical centers involved in a study to test a machine called OCS. It circulates blood, plasma, and protein through a donated liver to prevent the cells from dying.

The study is in its first phase, but doctors say the results are promising.

Paul Hamilton is one of the patients who has benefited.
