How to save a life with a heart transplant
The odds are very high that if you’re on a waiting list for a heart surgery, you will get one.
But that does not mean you can’t save a loved one’s life.
The heart transplant process is an extraordinary process.
There are so many different options available for heart transplants, and a heart patient’s life can depend on the outcome.
Here are some tips for dealing with the daunting decision to save someone’s life: What’s the procedure?
Heart transplantation involves placing a healthy heart in a recipient’s chest and moving it out of their body.
You may be told that the transplant will take place in two to six months.
In reality, the transplant is about two weeks, and it can take weeks to get the new heart inside the recipient’s body.
What’s going to happen after the transplant?
Some people may have difficulty breathing, and some may have symptoms for weeks or even months afterward.
You’ll also be given a heart patch that will help you breathe for about two days after the heart transplant.
After the patch is removed, the new recipient may have trouble breathing.
After about six months, the donor may need to have their breathing tube tied up so they can breathe again.
After four to six weeks, the recipient may need the heart transplanted again.
If the donor is not willing to have the heart removed, a second heart may be implanted, and then the donor will need to undergo another surgery and have their lungs removed.
What happens if the heart is removed?
If the heart does not survive the transplant, the heart donor may die.
But, the organ will eventually be returned to the heart patient.
In a few rare cases, heart transplantation is a viable option for patients who have a heart condition that prevents the donor’s heart from beating.
If you have heart disease, you may be able to save your own life.
Some patients may be prescribed medications to slow the heart’s rate of heartbeats and help keep it alive.
You might also be able use stem cells to produce new heart cells that can be used to replace damaged heart cells.
You can also receive stem cells from other organs, or from a donor heart, for transplantation.
What are the risks?
Heart transplants are risky, even for patients whose hearts are still strong and functioning.
The risks include: Death or injury to the donor heart after the procedure
