artificial lung

artificial lung

Any device or intervention designed to replace the body’s own ('native') respiratory function. The latest device is the BioLung, from the University of Michigan; unlike its failed predecessors, the BioLung is driven by the patient’s own heart, allowing the patient to remain active at home instead of requiring sedation and connection to a machine in the hospital
