Artificial heart recipient passes 30-day mark
Dr. Rob Dowling operated on recipient of first fully self-contained artificial heart LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (CNN) An unidentified 50-year-old man who is the first recipient of a fully self-contained artificial heart has passed the 30-day mark since the device was implanted at a hospital in Louisville, Kentucky. Doctors had told him he had 30 days to live due to impending heart and renal troubles and his diabetes condition. CNN anchor Carol Lin spent some time speaking on Thursday with one of the artificial heart recipient's physicians, Dr. Rob Dowling, a heart surgeon. LIN: How is your patient doing? DOWLING: He's doing wonderful. He's gaining his strength. He's able to get up and move around. We're just very pleased with his progress. LIN: How is he spending his days now? What's he doing? DOWLING: Oh, yes, well, we kind of keep him busy. You know we have the physical therapists coming to see him and the nurses are exercising him and sometimes he just goes and sits and hangs out at the nurse's station and interacts with all the doctors, the lung doctors, the kidney doctors, everyone that's coming by. And sometimes he just listens to his CDs or watches a videotape, but you know, he's we keep him kind of busy.
