Abstract [en]

In the healthcare system when a patient is waiting for a donated heart, the choice of the transportation method is critical. Thus, the efficiency of this procedure relies on the traveling time, which could affect the ischemic time, which is the time that heart can be discharged outside the human body. For best patient outcome, the heart has to be transplanted within four hours from the donor to the recipient. By transporting the donated heart via Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV, or drone), both the time and the cost required for the heart transportation will be minimized. This thesis intends to explore the specifications needed for the design and manufacture of a heart container and pick-up system for a drone, which will be able to transport a donated heart between hospitals.
