People of the universe, this will soon be yours…
Scientists say they have a working prototype of a fully artificial heart ready for implanting in humans.
The device beats almost exactly like the real thing using electronic sensors to regulate heart rate and blood flow.
The new heart is covered with specially treated tissue to avoid rejection by the body’s immune system and the formation of blood clots.
[A battery could last] for between five and 16 hours after which it would have to be recharged to prevent the artificial heart stopping.Dead battery means dead you.
