A donor heart beating in a mechanical system which keeps it warm, oxygenated, with nutrient enriched blood pumping through.I’m too fascinated to not to reblog this again
ok, thats really cool
I’m not sure whether to feel fascinated or a tad disgusted-
The new technology is remarkable.
This is so wicked cool
actually, it isn’t technology that keeps it beating
the heart has an intrinsic ability to beat - which is to say that it does not depend on neural impulses from the brain to continue beating (while regulation of heartbeat is another topic entirely)
so it will continue to beat even if all nerve connections are severed, as long as it is supplied with nutrients, oxygen, and warmth
The way I think about this, besides technology being amazing, is that you can keep going without the things you once thought you needed.
As long as you have the basics?
Or am I just crazy
actually in love with this. so fascinated.
Guys, it’s heart in a box #GreysAnatomy

when parents tell you not to do the thing but 5 seconds later they do the thing
every single one
I just want to disappear. I’m tired of being manipulated and taken advantage of. They all know I’m relatively selfless and just want to do things for other people and if I don’t I feel guilty. So whenever I decide to say not and put my foot down they call me selfish. They all need me. But none of them want me. And I think that is the most painful realization of my life.
