Heart replacement device from Texas
Two doctors have invented a heart replacement device that is keeping a man alive without a heartbeat. The gadget which replaced his failing heart pushes blood like water through a garden hose. So there is no heartbeat. Amazing.
See how it was done in this short (under 4 minute) mini documentary.
Heart Stop Beating is the story of Billy Cohn and Bud Frazier, two doctors from the Texas Heart Institute, who in the spring of 2011 replaced a dying man’s heart with the device they developed, demonstrating that life is possible without a pulse or a heart beat, with the right technology.
The documentary is called: Heart Stop Beating (click the link to see it now).
