The Size of a Walnut: Your Heart In Their Hands

25 May, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


What does it feel like to hold a baby’s heart in your hands? To ‘feel’ their life. No one really talks about this, but as well as the obvious responsibility associated with cardiac surgery on children, there is also (for almost all surgeons) a great deal of emotion.

In an attempt to explain that to you, this lecture compiles a series of video interviews with paediatric cardiac surgeons around the world who explain how that physical contact with someone else’s beating heart makes them feel.
No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.
