The OrganOx® metra™ during Transport


Step 5: Seal & Wheel...

Once organ preservation has commenced a hard cover is then attached to the retained unit, providing protection from
the elements inside a rugged design.
The metra can then be readily dropped
onto its detachable trolley, enabling it to be
wheeled by a single person from theatre
to a transport vehicle.



Step 6: Load & Transport

The metra can be readily loaded onto all
transport vehicles in use by retrieval
teams today. Using the all-round handrail it can be easily lifted off its detachable trolley by members of the retrieval team,
and its convex feet faciliate sliding
across the surfaces lining transport vehicles.
Securing the device to vehicle anchoring
points is also readily achieved by making
use of pre-defined attachment junctions
on the handrail.




Step 7: Power on the Go

The metra is designed to operate
optimally in all environments. Whilst on
the transport vehicle, it can be charged
from a 12V DC power supply, prolonging
battery life to enable transport from the
retrieval centre to the transplant unit,
where it can be readily re-connected to
mains power.



Step 8: Monitor Organ Performance

Whether in theatre, whilst wheeling or
during vehicle transport, the metra
provides the user with continous
monitoring of heamodynamic, synthetic
and metabolic organ performance.
The screen is continously visible through
the hard cover, and gives real-time
information on pressures, flows,
temperature, blood gases, pH and bile
production.
