How COVID-19 May Impact Organ Transplants
While it’s no secret that COVID-19 has made a devastating impact worldwide, some studies show that even those who recover from the virus may suffer lasting complications that could result in organ failure, ultimately increasing the need for transplants.
The good news is that Transplant Centers in the US are considered the best in the world and have increased the number of successful transplants in 2020 despite the global pandemic.
Below we’ve listed three articles that we think you might find interesting: two outline the lasting heart or kidney damage that some COVID-19 survivors experience, and one examines possible improvements for the US transplant system going forward.
Angel MedFlight is proud to partner with Transplant Centers across the country expand their programs and help out-of-area patients.
