My first real post. Did a quick search but didn't turn anything up relevant to this article.

I found this article on Design Taxi about a man without a real live beating heart and he is able to survive and function properly. He has a mechanism in his body where his heart would be that continiously pumps blood like a 'garden hose'

Interesting


I gave you a star and a flag for your first real post


This is just a different kind of mechanical "heart". It's definitely a very different way of looking at it. I bet it might not work for all people. For instance, I wonder what would happen if his body needed a faster flow due to exercise? Would be interesting to follow up on how he is doing with his new heart

I was going to ask whether or not this source was reliable, however upon clicking the link, and viewing the photos/X-ray scans, i am inclined to believe it is real.

S&F for the find

as long as oxygen rich blood is reaching the brain the Consciousness is retained.

Total break thru fail!

well this interesting, and pretty weird.

Hmm, so if his head never detaches, will that mean he lives immortally?
Wonder if he'll age?

Walking zombie-vampire without the quirks?


Pretty cool

He is already dead

I'll have to put this on my x-mas list then.

Hasnt dick cheney (former u.s. vice president) had something like this for a while now?

An engineering solution to an engineering problem.

What times we live in!

Despite the certainty of making a totally useless post, I just want to say that this is absolutely amazing.

Yes, I knew about Chenny too, appearently he has an ambulance following him at every step. i guess the survival record with such heart was under a year,it is used as a temp solution while searching for a bio-donor

I don't think it's the same technology as Darth Cheney's heart pump. Yet, this is an amazing feat ! One small step for mankind, a giant leap for immortality.

S&F !!

this was done early last year so not so new news but still amazing


Texas Man Pioneers Use of Beatless Heart, the Wave of the Future

Darth has a pump to assist his heart until a transplant.

WOW!

i wonder if his circulatory system can handle it?


would it be unhealthy for your tubes to miss a slight drop in the intensity of the flow every second?


also, if someone had two hearts, would it mean that they could take turns beating, creating a semi-continuous flow while letting the other heart rest for a slightly longer time?

does the heart run out of batteries?

It appears robocop had it right back in 1987 :-)

Why don't they just make the turbines pulsed? Obviously if our heart is only pumping blood in pulses, then we don't need to have a continuous flow of blood. It would be much more energy efficient to have the turbine pulsed, and it would seem to be more natural.

From a mechanical reliability perspective its probably easier to just have it running smoothly and continuously. Just an educated guess. Its a lot easier to tune something to work reliability at a continuous rotational speed than it is for continuous run up/down.
