WORLD'S FIRST
ARTIFICIAL HEART

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first artificial heart?

The artificial heart was patented in the mid-1950s by Dr. Paul Winchell , but it would be almost 30 years before before anyone received one.

On December 01, 1982 at the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah Dr. William C. DeVries implanted dentist Dr. Barney Clark with a Jarvik-7, an artificial heart designed by Robert Jarvik.

Barney Clark was connected to a large air compressor needed to power the heart and he survived 112 days.
