Catalyst - Blood Pump
James Vote is a 65–year–old diabetic suffering from peripheral vascular disease. Doctors told him it was inevitable he would lose his leg. He was determined to find another option and joined a world first clinical trial.
The adaptation of a simple blood pump and invention of the PAD or peripheral access device, by Sydney vascular surgeon and biomedical engineer, Dr Rodney Lane has restored blood flow to the dying limbs of several people and spared them amputation. Catalyst follows James during his operation and recovery.
