Abstract

This 45-minute presentation will recount some of the milestones and obstacles, achievements and pitfalls of developing a heart-assist device for adults and children. Hopefully it will both inspire future innovators and spare them the anguish of repeating some fatal decisions made by others throughout the history of this field. But mostly, inspire… to achieve their full God-given potential and pursue their dreams to make a difference through Biomedical Engineering.
