The same technique which saves people after cardiac arrest and stroke may help improve kidney transplants.
A new study shows that cooling the bodies of deceased donors before the organs are transplanted helped those kidneys start up faster.
In almost half of kidney transplants, there's a delayed start - and sometimes those organs never function completely.
But in this test, the mild hypothermia worked so well, the trial was stopped early so all patients could get it.
