Science! Article on Woman Who Lived Without Lungs for Six Days

This article doesn’t have so much to do with jiu jitsu, but more with the marvel at how far we’ve come in terms of modern medicine.

This woman lived without a set of lungs for six days, and through the wonders of modern medical technology, was able to survive that period and receive a lung transplant.

Six days- that’s crazy! Maybe I just listen too much about our medical history, but we’ve definitely come a long way from blood letting and “well, let’s just cut it off and see if they make it.”

Check out the article and have a great day everyone!

    We really have come a long way! 🙂 If you ever get a chance to check out the Mutter Museum (http://muttermuseum.org/) in Philadelphia, it is well worth the time. It will make you thankful for modern medicine! 🙂
