Artificial Heart Breakthrough

Heart conditions takes more life in United States than anything else. For every one of the 3100 people with coronary failure presently waiting for an organ transplant every minute is precious. Dr. Jennifer Ashton introduces in this video a man who's on a organ transplant list, but he's found his freedom by carrying around a remarkable new device.

The device costs around $125.000 and the maintenance for it it's about $18.000 per year. It is speculated that someday this new heart device will replace heart transplant - as it will evolve to a smaller model. The key is to better treat the heart failure patients before they will get sick enough to require this new medical device.
