This world-first bionic heart works without a pulse

Post by Guest on Thu Mar 12, 2015 1:56 pm

Australian researchers have invented a new type of bionic heart that pumps blood around the body without a pulse. Named BiVACOR, the device has been successfully implanted in a sheep, and works so well, researchers are hoping to run human trials in just three years. 
Not only does the device last for up to a decade, but it’s smaller, and less susceptible to wear and tear than current artificial hearts. "There were other devices that were quite large, and they also would break quite easily," one of the team Daniel Timms, formerly from the Queensland University of Technology, [url=http://www.sciencealert.com/Jorge Branco at The Brisbane Times.]told Jorge Branco at [/url][url=http://www.sciencealert.com/Jorge Branco at The Brisbane Times.]The Brisbane Times[/url]. "And the reason they would break is they would have a sac, so if you're beating them billions of times per year, they're going to break."
