Speaker: Lisa Schaffner
Topic: LUNG TRANSPLANTS: What UNOS is doing to Find Your Perfect Organ
Lisa Schaffner speaks at the Nov 2014 Breath Matters meeting at Chippenham Medical Center in Richmond, Virginia. She speaks on the topic of UNOS and its efforts to match life-saving organs between deceased donors and those on the national organ donation waiting list maintained by UNOS (United Network for Organ Sharing). UNOS works with important organs such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, pancreas, liver and intestines.
In particular, Lisa Schaffner speaks on lung transplants, how lungs are donated, how they are matched to people in need, and the pitfalls and difficulties of providing successful organ transplantation.
