Nature's engineering isn't so easy to copy let alone rival!

It would be interesting to hear from the patient, as to how the heart feels. Interesting also how complicated the heart really is when you try to make one that works like the human heart.

give some hopes

I wish to be the first arabian and muslim doctor to impact such device in human being ...

You say "Bravo", I say "What on earth took you so long?".

  



IF it's so easy why didn't you invent it already, wise guy? It turns out blood is living tissue, and it turns out that the way the heart beats as well as the shape and consistency of the valves are designed by evolution to be optimal for the job. All mechanical devices so far have ended up producing either clots or destroying the blood cells/platelets after any amount of time. It's much more complicated than just being a pump.

This is not Obama Care,but a artificial heart,who dare to dream if one day,mr carpenter can give heart disease patients a new lease of life!

  


Indeed. This is what happens when a country adopts a socialised health programme: they actually develop new ways of helping people. Perhaps the United States could benefit from this aspect of Socialism, instead of the Affordable Care Act, which mandates to the Americans that they submit to a for-profit company which cares nothing for them.

watch the film 'Repo Men' to find out where this technology is heading.

Th is technology will be hyped up (rightly so as it is life saving) and as soon as there is enough demand the price will sky-rocket and it will become unaffordable. People will have to take out loans to pay for them and in the end if you cant afford the payments it will be reposessed, just like you're house.

Devices such as this could have EASILY been invented decades (if not centuries) ago, but sadly humanity prefers diverting the bulk of its resourcefullness into engineering vanity and death.

You say "Bravo", I say "What on earth took you so long?".

  



Amen, very well said. Unfortunately for humanity, war and killing is more lucrative than saving lives.

I thought the US is the only EXCEPTIONAL country? The frogs, the cheese eating surrenders monkeys having great health care for their people? The neocons don't need to insult the French any more! France became a Zionist occupied territory.

A pump that's a work of art. :)
