Meet The First HEARTLESS Human, And He Is Surviving Without A Pulse!
In 2011, a 55-year-old man named Craig Lewis was dying from a life threatening heart problem called “amyloidosis”. It’s a rare disease that causes build-ups of abnormal proteins which results to rapid heart, kidney and liver failure. Without immediate medical intervention Craig would have likely died within days because not even a pacemaker could help save his life.
But two brilliant doctors came up with a revolutionary new solution – replace his heart with a “continuous flow” device that would allow blood to circulate his body without a pulse.
Dr. Billy Cohn and Dr. Bud Frazier from the institute removed Mr Lewis’ heart and then installed the device. Within a day, the patient was up, feeling well and speaking with physicians.
This is the “continuous flow” device that allows blood to circulate the body without a pulse.
Is it ridiculous to imagine a day when we will have the technology to replace all of our organs with devices that mimics each of their biological function, including our brain? Tell us your thoughts on this in the comments.
