Machine Perfusion of Livers
Liver Machine Perfusion devices such as OrganOx’s Metra and Organ Recovery System’s Liver Transporter are innovative technologies that can increase the success rate of liver transplant programs. However, the program’s success depends on the technology and the team of medical professionals managing it. Here are some benefits of having a well-trained crew when creating or managing a machine perfusion program.
Expertise in operating the machine
The success of the machine perfusion program depends on the operator’s knowledge and expertise in managing the machine. A well-trained team can efficiently operate the device, identify and respond to any issues, and make necessary adjustments to the perfusion parameters. Our Preservationists can significantly reduce the risk of machine malfunction, which could lead to liver damage and, ultimately, transplantation failure.
Efficient use of time
When managing a machine perfusion program, time is of the essence. A well-trained team can quickly and efficiently optimize perfusion parameters and continuously monitor the liver’s function in real time, providing your team with valuable feedback. Our staff ensures that the liver is preserved and ready for when your recipient is.
Consistent and reliable results
A trained crew can ensure consistency and reliability in the perfusion process. They are knowledgeable in the latest techniques and technologies and can maintain a high standard of care, ensuring the liver’s quality is preserved consistently to your specific protocols and standards. Reducing cold ischemic time or properly perfusing the liver at a designated temperature and increasing the success rate of the transplant can lead to improved liver function, reduced risk of complications after transplantation, and ultimately, better patient outcomes.
A trained crew managing and assisting your liver machine perfusion program can also increase cost-effectiveness. Let us at GSP demonstrate our expertise, which can optimize the perfusion process, get your program started confidently, minimize waste, and maximize the number of viable livers for transplantation. Our expertise in operating the machine, efficient use of time, consistent and reliable results, and cost-effectiveness can significantly increase the success rate of liver transplantation and improve patient outcomes.
