Electrical Lung

You are going to buy an Electrical Lung or Electronic (Digital) Lung. Researchers at Harvard University just demonstrated a prototype. Researchers at Harvard University have successfully created a functioning, respirating human 'lung' on a chip in a lab. Made using human and blood vessel cells and a microchip. They have combined microfabrication techniques from the computer industry with modern tissue engineering techniques, human cells and a plain old vacuum pump to create a living, breathing human lung-on-a-chip. The device mimics the most active part of the lung, the boundary between the air sac and the blood vessel. This innovation may put a new erea in medical organ replacement history.
