In collaboration with Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network, we’re proud to provide two videos around kidney perfusion on the Organ Recovery Systems Client Community!
Kidney Perfusion Improves Transplant Success describes how Gift of Hope uses HMP technology in their organization. Learn more about machine perfusion using LifePort® Kidney Transporter and how it helps transplant teams improve patient outcomes and save lives.
In Kidney Perfusion Improves Patient Outcomes, earn CEUs while diving into how Gift of Hope is reducing delayed graft function by using LifePort Kidney Transporter.
Let us know what you think, and keep sharing the knowledge!
Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network coordinates the organ and tissue donation process and provides education about the importance of organ and tissue donation to the public and healthcare professionals in Illinois and northwest Indiana. Since 1986, their efforts have saved the lives of more than 23,000 organ transplant recipients and improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of tissue transplant recipients.

Brief Bubble and Intermittent Surface Oxygenation Is a Simple and Effective Alternative for Membrane Oxygenation During Hypothermic Machine Perfusion in Kidneys
A study by Darius et al. sought to evaluate the use of direct bubble and intermittent surface oxygenation during continuous HMP as an alternative to using a membrane oxygenator. They evaluated the renal flow, resistance and concentration of pO2 in the perfusate as...
Intermittent Surface Oxygenation Results in Similar Mitochondrial Protection and Maintenance of Aerobic Metabolism as Compared to Continuous Oxygenation during Kidney HMP
A study by Darius et al. evaluated the metabolic effect of a short interruption of surface oxygenation compared to continuous surface and membrane oxygenation in a pig kidney model. They looked at ATP levels as well as the pO2 measures, renal flow and resistance, and...
First clinical kidney transplantation series using brief bubble and direct surface oxygenation as alternative for membrane oxygenation during HMP
A study by Darius et al. reported on the first 5 cases of using the method of bubble and intermittent surface oxygenation during HMP in human renal transplantation. This case study provided information on 3 DCD donors of which 5 of the 6 kidneys were allocated to...
