Listen to my heartbeat with the LVAD

In this video, I share the sound of my heart with an animation. This is the beat that is keeping me alive, and still thriving. I hope you would enjoy it as much as we had fun putting it together. Enjoy!

Some say that it sounds like an arcade, a video game and others say that it sounds like a disco. What’s your take? Let me know in the Comments or email. Also, please feel free to share.

Due to my advanced congestive heart failure, a HeartMate 3 LVAD (by Abbott) was implanted into my heart in January 2017. The pump is inserted inside the left ventricle and connects it to the Aorta. The system helps my heart provide enough oxygenated blood across my body until a donor heart is available for a transplant.
