A heart beating moments after a successful transplantation!
Notice the aortic arch stitches.
During a cardiac transplantation procedure, the ventricles are excised, leaving the great vessels, right atrium, and left atrium of the recipient. The donor heart is then sewn to these areas.
Now, the transplanted heart fills with blood and pumps as any other normal heart. However, the transplanted heart is "denervated." This means that the nerves from the central nervous system that supplied connections to the original failing heart do not supply connections to the new transplanted heart. These nerves were divided upon removal of the patients own heart.
That being said, a defibrillator with small paddles is used to shock the heart to restart beating. The denervation of the organ makes it dependent on its intrinsic rate the heart increases its rate only after substances called catecholamines (adrenalin, for example) are released from the adrenal gland and circulated through the blood to the heart.

you have to make them fear you before you make them feel you. So everybody like my posts or I'm gonna come and kill you x
12 weeks pregnant, as of yesterday! Bump is half baby and half Big Mac. 😂 Feeling more myself the farther I progress, minus clothes not fitting the way I would like. Seeing my OB on Wednesday and I am so excited to see my little nugget! I was able to record the heartbeat when I got home from work today, which is the only thing keeping me remotely calm these days. Fingers crossed that tonight is my last progesterone shot, but not getting my hopes up too high. No shot tomorrow to make sure they only test my levels not the injections. 🙏🏻🤞🙏🏻 #12weekspregnant#12weeks1day#rainbowbaby#babybump#athomedoppler#unicornuateuterus#ivfjourney#ivfsuccess#heartbeat#bestnoiseever

Last week, I was inspired by a child’s perspective of the world - no judgement - just pure sense. I wanted to embody that play and healing energy in this work.

First meeting with my actual midwife, and she’s English ! What are the chances haha !
Excuse my giggling but nugget was moving around so much they kept having to move the Doppler from once side to the other. Clearly having too much fun in there.
