Life-saving Breakthrough: Drones and Organ Transplants
breakthrough: an important development or discovery that helps to solve a problem or improve a situation
In September, a drone carried a human lung between two Toronto hospitals in just 5 minutes this past. This trip would have taken 25 minutes by car. This is a major breakthrough for lung transplants as these organs can’t stay on ice very long. Researchers are now working to create a special flight path for drones carrying organs. Drones could soon transport organs over long distances. This could make organ transplants quicker and more efficient. Imagine a future where drones will save lives by delivering organs much faster than cars.
