First, after a failed attempt at surgical repair of the heart, a Liotta-Cooley artificial heart, Dacron tubes, and a Wada-Cutter hingeless valve prosthesis are implanted as a palliative measure. A donated heart is transplanted in a later surgery. A disposable bubble oxygenator is used. Film has voice over narration by Don Macon and illustrations.
