Hello,

i wanted to know for how long can someone remain without a heart?

How does it take place during heart transplant please?
When the heart is removed to be replaced by another one ?

Thank you
A special machine called a 'heart and lung' machine pumps blood around the body - the machine filters the blood and takes out deoxygenated blood and put back oxygen.

It's a really clever operation - very technical.
