Heartmate II LVAD Implantation live video
Hello, In my spare time I often search the net looking for the latest news and technology with the LVAD. Recently, I came across this live narrated operative video of an actual implantation.
Normally, the sight of things like this make my stomach weak but I actually watched the video in its entirety and was simply amazed! Thought I would share with the community (*GRAPHIC NATURE*)http://youtu.be/I4r5_3uS0Nc

Just wanted to say, I admire all who have gone thru lvad care, it is not easy, as I am finding out.But, what concerns me more is the person"s attitude. My husband can be very hard to work with and I will be responsible for his care. How does one do it.

Very cool video. But then again I like that kind of thing. I wonder if he would do anything differently now that the FDA has made the recall with a change in how the inlet tube or whatever is connected. Wanted to ask on YouTube but can never figure out how to sign in.
