LVAD... Left Ventricular Assist Device

THIS BLOG POWERED BY THE THORATEC HEARTMATE II LVAD:















PARTIAL HEART PUMP = LEFT VENTRICULAR ASSIST DEVICE = LVAD = THE HEARTMATE II



THE LVAD ALLOWED ME to go HOME and conquer my normal and newest tasks once again.



Thank you Columbia-Presbyterian... Dr Naka and his Surgery Team, LVAD Nation, Dr Bijou & Dr Bonoan, Dr Mascitelli and Dr Shulman-Marcus!!!



AND TO THE SCORES OF PHYSICIANS, NURSES, PROFESSIONALS AND PEOPLE THAT PUSHED ME ALONG THE WAY... FORWARD.

Me And My LVAD :-)

The last 7 months I was a volunteer for a Study (SCORR) or (SOCC) at Columbia-NY Presbyterian Hospital. Me and My LVAD :-)




One of the results from the study ended up where my Brain was mapped out under a "Lower Blood Perfusion Test" The model of my brain, under these conditions is THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD.

My LVAD's speed was lowered... lowering the oxygen in the blood, hence the brain :-)
This study will assist stroke patients as well as LVAD patients now and in the future.
And the good saga continues...
