Why so many for one heart?

I thought about the patient, too. Very depressing. Hope they can still use it.

from the post

transplant operations must in principle be completed within four hours of organ removal.

that would be impossible to achieve even with the donor and recipient were even in the same hospital.

I don't that is true in practice.

Their called organ transport teams. Human organs are extremely valuable. They are worth their weight in gold

In the west where organ transplants have been happening far longer and in greater numbers it wouldn't take a team of 7 to transplant a heart. Sometimes a guy on a motorbike gets it done.

Do you carry a donor card, I do it's on my National Health Card.

I absolutely refuse to be an organ donor not because I mind donating organs but because how they treat the body after organs are removed.

I thank these people who carry emergency items to save lives, but its totally possible not all 7 were doing a single task isn’t it?

If an ambulance with 4 staff crash going to save you, THEN perhaps ask “why so many?”

pilot, co-pilot, doctor, nurse max needed. Really only need the pilots to deliver the organ.

It’s a absolutely tragedy being. I seriously condole on this helicopter accident and total about issue.

Not had a co-pilot on helicopter rides I've been on.

Horrible outcome likely for the intended transplant recipient, but it's great that nobody was killed in the crash.

Harvesting of organs is not necessarily donor constrained, according to Ishiguro Kazuo.

Someone took a video of the Helicopter heading down - it looked pretty scary, though at least the Pilots managed a Safe landing in the situation, things could have been a lot worse otherwise.
