About the Video of Surgeons Showing Blackened Lungs

The tar-blackened lungs belong to a chain smoker addicted to smoking for the past three decades. What you see is in fact Tobacco residue clogging up the lungs of a 52-year-old dead man in China.
Doctors from Wuxi People’s Hospital in Jiangsu, China shared the video viral online after removing the lungs surgically. Note, the blackened lungs look larger than the normal deflated lung postmortem as the surgeons might have inflated them with air or fluid before harvesting for donation. Sharing the video, Lung transplant surgeon Dr. Chen questioned ‘Do you still have the courage to smoke?‘. He also mentioned the importance of quitting Smoking.
The patient was suffering from Pulmonary Emphysema – severely inflamed and expanded Lungs, losing their natural elasticity and causing shortness of breath. Reportedly, the patient smoke a pack of cigarettes a day for 30 years. Doctors harvested his organs as the patient previously signed up to donate his organs after death. They were however useless.
