VIDEO: How Does A Heart Lung Machine Work?

Posted by Adam Pick on July 17th, 2008

For most patients requiring open heart surgery for heart valve repair or a valve replacement procedure, the use of a heart lung machine is critical. The heart lung machine enables the surgeon to stop and cool the heart so that it can be operated on without movement.

In the past, I’ve shared a little bit about heart lung machines on this blog, but I just saw an interesting video at YouTube.com which answers the question that many of us have. That question is “How do heart lung machines work?”

You can click the image above to see the video and learn more about this incredible machine used during open heart surgery.

Keep on tickin!
