Technology, isn't it about time?


That is how I feel when I saw this article about funding for research on Ventricular assist devises for children/infants.. It's a bout time!!!!! While Elaine was awaiting her heart transplant, the one thing we heard over and over was, too bad there isn't an LVAD for kids. Well hopefully this is in the works to be a great tool to help extend life until a donor can be found. I know there have been some experimental devises (mainly from other countries), but they need to b e available to every child who needs them! As a mother of one of the "approximately 60 children younger than age 5 waiting on the heart transplant list may die before a donor organ becomes available", this hits real close to home. Come on scientists, do your stuff! Families are depending on you!
