Comments on the Video directed to Dr. Redmond Burke.

  • Did they stop the heart?

  • Yes, they put it on a heart and lung machine to still circulate blood and control breathing.But the heart still beats a little do to elecctric signals ffrom the brain.

  • Ha, no, not all doctors use slang.

  • Dr Redmond Burke, thank you for posting this! What an amazing video to watch. I am a NICU nurse, and have worked in many different units (one being at christiana care, which is a sister unit to AI Dupont), and have seen many babies with congenital heart defects. It is amazing to see just how they are fixed! I love what I do, and it was incredible to get a peek at what happens once these babies get to the cardiac ICU!!! Do you also do the TAPVR repairs? Thanks again for posting, and God bles

  • Some few doctors are “Heroes”.

  • hand salute to all the doctors in the world 🙂

  • Amazing I hope the child will be alright. And cant wait untill MED SCHOOL!!!

  • Doctors are my heros save lives…I want to be a doctor when I grow up

  • doctors are heros

  • Unfortunately, they actually do feel pain. My son has been through the series of surgeries.He was given very low doses of morphine during recovery. Then he was even prescribed liquid percocet when he was discharged.


  • this is a great thing to watch being im learning about cardio tech and going to continue on surgery…

  • I cry every time I watch this.

  • great job .

  • ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww they did that 2 me??!? I have HLHS too.

  • Very interesting, Why did the heart stop beating after a while?

  • they put the heart on bypass or circulated the blood without the use of the heart to prevent blood loss and to make their cuts easier

  • give me coment

  • bypass circulated the blood without the heart beating to prevent from any blood loss

  • I had a heart surgery when I was 3 weeks old, a month old, 2 years old, and 4 years old, and I just had a CATH done in January
