Some of the technological achievements that I’ve featured on this blog have blown my mind.
The technology featured in “Heart Stop Beating” is unbelievable and may be the greatest medical feat in recent history along with the current HIV vaccine clinical trials which have been taking place at The University of Western Ontario.
I’ve watched the short film featured below a number of times, over the course of the last week and it still seems unfathomable.
The filmmakers describe the feat as follows:
“Billy Cohn and Bud Frazier, two visionary doctors from the Texas Heart Institute, who in March of 2011 successfully replaced a dying man’s heart with a “continuous flow” device they developed, proving that life was possible without a pulse or a heart beat.”
