Improved Heart Pump Developed at 'U' Hospital!

"This is a superior method com-
pared to the earlier technique of
Dr. Roger F. Milnes, also of Tho-
racic Surgery, added.
"Development of the oxygenator
and the extra corporeal circula-
tion technique was a team opera-
tion," according to Dr. Morris and
Dr. Milnes.
Craftsman Machinist
"The oxygenator was built by
an excellent craftsman machin-
ist," they added. "He is Hermann
'Roemer, superintendent of the
physics instrument shop."
Plastic is the primary material
used in the oxygenator, because
it is less apt to damage sensitive
blood corpuscles.
The oxygenator, costing under
$250, stands 30 inches high and is
eight inches in diameter.
Similarly designed oxygenators
have had wide-spread application

NEW HEART PUMP-Intricate heart operations with less danger to patients are now being per-
formed with the aid. of a new heart pump, shown above, developed by the Thoracic Surgery Section
of the Department of Surgery at University Hospital.

By MARCIA TI 4MAS
Intricate heart operations can
now be performed with less dan-
ger to patients.
A new oxygenator, developed at
the University, with a pump chan-
nels blood around the heart, en-
abling surgeons to operate while
the blood continues to circulate.
The machine is a combination
of a bubble oxygenator, developed
by the Thoracic Surgery Section
of the Department of Surgery at
University Hospital, and a com-
mnercial pump.
Lung Substitute
Each part of the machine has
a special function in heart opera-
tions. The oxygenator is a sub-
stitute for the lungs and the pump
takes the place of the heart.
Ties are placed around the ma-
jor veins leading into the heart,
thereby excluding the heart from
the circulation process. Two small
tubes then pick up the blood from
the major veins and carry it to
one chamber of the pump.
From the pumping chamber it
is driven to the oxygenator. Here

pure oxygen with five per cent
carbon dioxide added is bubbled
through the blood and becomes
oxygenated within a range of 98
per cent saturation.
Bubbles Removed
All air bubbles are eventually
removed with the help of an anti-
foam preparation which has been
applied to the surfaces of the
oxygenator.
The oxygenated blood is then
drawn by another pumping cham-
her through a safety filter device
assuring removal of all air bubbles,
and sensitive fibrin particles. It
is returned to the body by the fe-
moral artery where the circula-
tion cycleis completed.
This process is continued until
the operation is finished.
Ties around the main veins en-
tering the right heart are then
