The Dodrill GMR[edit]

Would adding information about the Dodrill GMR be relevant here? I think it should be included.

Take a look at this quote from a paper I was reading:

On July 3, 1952, a 41-year-old male suffering from shortness of breath made medical history at Harper University Hospital in Michigan. The Dodrill-GMR heart machine, considered by some to be the first operational mechanical heart was successfully used while performing heart surgery (Stephenson, Arbulu and Bassett) (American Heart Association). The machine performs the functions of the heart, allowing doctors to detour blood and stop the heart of a patient during an operation. The machine is external of the body and is only used during an operation. Dr. Forest Dewey Dodrill, a surgeon at Wayne State University’s Harper Hospital in Detroit, developed the machine with funding from The American Heart Association and volunteer engineers from General Motors (American Heart Association). Dr. Dodrill used the machine in 1952 to bypass Henry Opitek’s left ventricle for 50 minutes while he opened the patient's left atrium and worked to repair the mitral valve. In Dodrill’s post operative report he notes, “To our knowledge, this is the first instance of survival of a patient when a mechanical heart mechanism was used to take over the complete body function of maintaining the blood supply of the body while the heart was open and operated on (Stephenson, Arbulu and Bassett).”

This is a great reference: Stephenson, Larry W, et al. "The Michigan Heart: The World's First Successful Open Heart Operation?" Journal of Cardiac Surgery 17.3 (2002): 238-246.

I added it- Strictly speaking its not cardiopulmonary bypass since the oxygenator was not used, but I think its an important part of the development of the technique.Chitownhustler (talk) 02:06, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

early russian experimentation with this process[edit]

still maybe somewhat related?

No signature on the above question

I agree this is somewhat related, but not sufficient to be included in the mainstream use of CBP. The Revival of Organisms film is a dramatic demonstration that CPB is effective to replace the heart and lungs. A section about early CPB experimentation should be added to the history section, but the above link would be better associated with an article on suspended animation or artificial organs.

Cannulation Sites[edit]

I moved the section on cannulation sites into a table to give a neater appearance. The longer from in my previous edit would be more appropriate if further description was given to the reason behind choice of sites. However I feel this technical description is way beyond the scope of wikipedia. Perhaps an external link to Edmunds would be appropriate for anyone interested in the technical details. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dlodge (talkcontribs) 23:57, 10 December 2006 (UTC).

Someone added "Another key factor is a small group of ninjas that slice air into the blood." I removed the line 5/18/2007

First machine in 1885[edit]

This article suggests that the first machine was build as early as 1885. It was tested on dogs at least. More references inside the document. -- (talk) 22:22, 6 May 2013 (UTC)
