Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
Simon Messer, a specialist trainee registrar in cardiothoracic surgery and a researcher on heart donation after cardiac death (DCD) at the Royal Papworth Hospital in the UK, presents his center’s experience on DCD heart transplantation as means of increasing the donor pool and reducing the waiting times for heart transplant recipients.
This lecture was presented during the Glasgow Cardiopulmonary Transplantation and Mechanical Circulatory Support Symposium, a one-day symposium held at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Glasgow, UK.
