A Dialyser for the Lungs Now, from India

Abstract:
The Photocatalytic Oxygenation project will facilitate the task of generating oxygen within the human body. Using the same principle that plants use to make oxygen, the team has succeeded in harnessing nanotechnology to infuse oxygen into human blood. A thin film made of titanium dioxide, approximately 1/1000th the thickness of human hair, facilitates a ray of UV light to split the water into oxygen and hydrogen. The hydrogen is immediately removed and oxygen allowed to circulate in the arterial system. All materials used are bio compatible.
