Application for Grant for Research Project, U.S. Public Health Service, "Development of a pump-oxygenator to replace the heart and lungs of human patients for brief periods," by Clarence Dennis

Subject

Open Heart Surgery

Description

Clarence Dennis, professor of surgery, applied for funding from the U.S. Public Health Service to support his research on the development of a pump-oxygenator, or heart and lung machine, to take over the circulation of a patient and allow for open heart surgery. Dennis performed two clinical operations using the machine he developed in April and May of 1951, but both patients died. Dennis left the University of Minnesota in 1951 for a position as the head of the Department of Surgery at the State University of New York Medical Center. In 1955, while at New York, Dennis successfully performed an open heart surgery using his heart-lung machine.
