Book Description Macmillan and Co, New York, 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Claude Schaeffer Beck (1894 1971) was a pioneer American cardiac surgeon, famous for innovating various cardiac surgery techniques, and performing the first defibrillation in 1947.[1] He was the first American professor of cardiovascular surgery, from 1952 through 1965. Nominee for the Nobel Prize in Medicine, 1952.Claude S. Beck, with several associates, defined a precise sequence of steps for management of cardiac arrest in the operating room and was able to apply them clinically with complete success. Subsequently, patients were resuscitated outside the operating room as well; and finally, massage and defibrillation across the intact chest have made cardiac resuscitation available at any place or time. In the 1930s, Beck worked on the problem of how to restore circulation to the heart, by developing a technique to implant some pectoral muscle into the pericardium, which provided an additional source of circulation. The technique received great acclaim at the time, though was eventually replaced with more modern techniques. He performed the first "Beck I" operation (cardiopericardiopexy) in 1935. The Beck II operation came about in the late 1940s, which created a vein graft between the aorta and coronary sinus.In 1947, he performed the first successful defibrillation. He had been operating on a 14-year-old boy with a congenital disorder, but towards the end of the surgery as the boy's chest was being closed, the boy went into cardiac arrest. Beck reopened the chest and tried to massage the heart by hand for approximately 45 minutes, before proceeding to the use of defibrillator which had been designed by Beck and built by his friend James Rand (of the Rand Development Corp.). Beck applied the paddles of the device directly to the boy's heart, and successfully brought the heart out of fibrillation. The boy made a full recovery.Beck is also credited with describing the physiological basis for the signs of acute cardiac tamponade.The medical signs classically associated with acute cardiac tamponade are collectively called Beck's triad. American surgeon born in Shamokia, Pennsylvania, who graduated from Johns Hopkins in 1921. He established collateral circulation for the heart by implanting the pectoral muscle to the pericardium in 1935. He was a pioneer in open cardiac massage in cases of cardiac asystole and described the Beck triad, consisting of low arterial pressure, high venous pressure and absent apex beat in cases of cardiac tamponade.
