Blood and Guts-A History of Surgery

Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
The development of cardiac surgery produced some of the most reckless experiments in the whole history of surgical procedures, but the final results have been nothing short of miraculous. This program sheds light on topics including early efforts to control surgical blood loss via high-pressure infusion; Wilfred "Bill" Bigelow's hypothermia research, which was applied to cardiac surgery to gain time during lengthier procedures; the first closed-heart operations, pioneered by Dwight Harken; the use of a heart-lung machine-or in some cases, a patient's own parent-to bypass the heart during open-heart surgery; and more.
