hi all
sorry if this has been posted i did use the wonderful search button
and sorry if in the wrong forum

In March of last year, Craig Lewis, 55, was dying from a heart condition that caused build-ups of abnormal proteins, and not even a pacemaker could help save his life.

But two doctors from the Texas Heart Institute proposed a revolutionary new solution – install a ‘continuous flow’ device that would allow blood to circulate his body without a pulse.

Dr Billy Cohn and Dr Bud Frazier installed the device after removing Mr Lewis’ heart. Within a day, the patient was up and speaking with physicians


this to me is a huge step for people with severe non repairable hearts
imagine the possibilities for this teck
i wonder if you can also live longer with this free flow device


(sorry again if already posted)

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?
