THE STORY:

Erin Lyons wrote -

As it pertains to the care of our patients with left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), we work using a multidisciplinary approach, with team members including nurses, PAs/NPs, social workers, dieticians, physical and occupational therapists, pharmacists, heart failure fellows, cardiac surgeons and heart failure attendings.  It takes a village to keep things moving in the right direction here at the Center for Advanced Heart Disease, which is why it is so imprortant to fundraise for these efforts!

Check our the photos on this page to see the LVADs and how our patients wear the equipment.  The LVADs can be used to assist the heart as a means until heart transplantation, called "bridge to transplantation" therapy, or they can be used as "destination therapy" whereby the patient can live the rest of his or her life with the LVAD.

Since the flow of blood is contiuous with the models of LVADs that we use today, it is not uncommon for our patients to not have a pulse.  Hence, the photo, "No pulse No problem."
