The World’s First Heartless Man

Doctors from the Texas Heart
Institute have successfully replaced a
patient’s heart with a device that
keeps the blood flowing, thereby
allowing him to live without a
detectable heartbeat or even a pulse.

Here’s how it works:
*The turbine-like device, that are
simple whirling rotors, developed by
the doctors does not beat like a heart,
rather provides a ‘continuous flow’ like
a garden hose.

Craig Lewis was a 55-year-old, dying
from amyloidosis, which causes a
build-up of abnormal proteins. The
proteins clog the organs so much that
they stop working, according to NPR.
*But after the operation, with the
‘machine’ as his heart’s replacement,
Lewis’ blood continued to spin and
move through his body.
*However, when doctors put a
stethoscope to his chest, no heartbeat
or pulse can be heard (only a
‘humming’ sound)—which “by all
criteria that we conventionally use to
analyze patients”, Doctor Cohn said,
he is dead.
*This is proof that “human physiology
can be supported without a pulse”.
With all the talk of replacing human
organs with those of an animal and
electronic hearts, it’s surprising that
medical researchers overlooked taking
a trip to the plumbing section of the
hardware store for replacement
