The World's First Heartless Human, Living Without A Pulse

Advertisement

In March of 2011, a gentleman named Craig Lewis, a 55-year-old experiencing a life threatening heart disease, named “amyloidosis”, was admitted to the Texas Heart Institute. It’s a uncommon autoimmune disease that fills inner organs with a sticky protein that roots the quick heart, kidney and liver disaster. Without instant interference Lewis would have possibly died within days.



Luckily, Dr. Billy Cohn and Dr. Bud Frazier from the Institute came up with what they call a “continuous flow” device which would let blood to circulate through his body without a pulse.  They detached Mr Lewis’ heart and then connected the device -the patient was up, well and speaking with doctors the very same day.

 





Dr. Cohn is a expert surgeon, as well as an discoverer and scientist who has consumed a large part of his life developing technologies to substitute or repair the human heart. The most distinguished device being what is called the Left Ventricular Assist Device, also termed as LVADs.



Cohn teamed up with Dr. Bud Frazier to make a new discovery that uses the technology from LVADs to duplicate the functions of the heart’s right and left ventricles.  They (inappropriately) tried their device on 70 calves, all of whom gave a flat line on an EKG, no heart rate or pulse, yet they were flawlessly normal, ate normally and related with each other normally but again, had no heartbeat.



As stated above, Craig Lewis was the first human to take this technology. The process took less than 48 hours and was a big success. His kidneys and liver were not so lucky though, they were fading him and after a few months his family asked the doctors to disconnect the device.



Below is a clip named “Heart Stop Beating.” It’s the story of these two doctors and the procedure they had to go through to substitute this man’s dying heart with a ‘continuous flow’ device.

    2. People with at least half a brain, that's who gives a shit. You know who doesn't? Idiots who don't have the mental capacity to speak their native language correctly.

  2. Interesting topic, but this article is so rife with grammatical errors and typos, it's impossible to read. This is the worst offender: "It’s a uncommon autoimmune disease that fills inner organs with a sticky protein that roots the quick heart, kidney and liver disaster." It makes the article seem like it was written by a bot.

  4. Grammar is important if an article is to be presented as professional. From googling, I am still not sure if the article is genuine as major news networks have not picked up the "news". Rather suspicious.

    I also found the following "Craig Lewis was the first human to receive this technology. The procedure took less than 48 hours and was a great success. However, his kidneys and liver were not so lucky. They were failing him, and after a few months his family asked the doctors to unplug the device." .... "The family ultimately decided to turn the heart off to allow him to die humanely." .... and "They wear out, [Dr Billy Cohn] explained. With a car, you can change the oil and spark plugs – with an artificial heart, it is not so easy to keep the device going".

  5. Sorry I pressed the publish button prematurely. So, one article said Lewis other organs failed him; another said Lewis' family requested the doctors to unplug the pulseless "heart" to enable Leiws to die humanely. But a third seems to indicate suggest that the artificial pulseless heart worn out. Unless, a major news network carry the story, this article seems 'unreal'.
