Synopsis: This book examines the careers of Blalock, a white male surgeon; Taussig, a white female cardiologist; and Thomas, an African American male laboratory technician; who in 1944 combined their skills to create a groundbreaking surgical procedure that not only saved the lives of thousands of children, but also made surgeons aware that surgery on living hearts was possible.

Book Description Chelsea House Publishers, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1944, Alfred Blalock, Helen Taussig, and Vivien Thomas revolutionized surgical treatment of the heart and nearby blood vessels through an improbable partnership among a white male surgeon, a white female physician, and an African-American male laboratory technician. Separately, each of these individuals was brilliant. Blalock discovered the cause and best treatment of the deadly medical condition called shock, which can occur after severe injury or loss of blood. Taussig essentially founded pediatric cardiology, the medical subspecialty dealing with children s heart ailments. And Thomas was an inventor, and to those who knew him, close to a surgical genius. It was the combination of their skills, however, that made medical history. Through their combined efforts, they found a solution to blue baby syndrome, which saved thousands of children s lives and showed that operating on the heart was possible. In this interesting new book, readers will be drawn into the work of these medical pioneers. Bookseller Inventory # FLT9781604136586
