Inside The Mind Of A Heart Surgeon

Inside The Mind Of A Heart Surgeon

An  Overview

The complexity of the heart surgery procedure can be intimidating for an uninitiated person. However, before you begin your work you need to first understand the mindset of a heart surgeon. This is because the knowledge and experience gained from years of professional practice will help you to predict the course of events during your surgery.

Knowledge About Patient’s Condition

The following is an explanation of what a London heart surgeon knows and remembers about his patient’s condition, and how he goes about performing the operation:

  • The patient’s physical state: being unconscious or very sleepy, barely breathing or gasping for air, etc.
  • The patient’s previous medical history: age, weight, blood pressure, recent medications and their indication (eg – asthma), previous surgery (eg – angioplasty), etc.
  • The patient’s general condition; eg – heart failure (due to coronary artery disease), and abnormal heart rhythms (eg – atrial fibrillation).
  • The clinical sign(s) that have been observed during previous examinations (eg – chest pain, cough); eg – hemoptysis in case of pulmonary embolism.
  • The nature and severity of any symptoms experienced; eg – chest pain in case of cardiac arrest.

Highlighting The Importance Of Precision In Heart Surgery

Heart surgeons are highly trained professionals who have studied their craft for years and have studied it thoroughly. They have developed their own unique body of knowledge on this subject. This information is private to them and they are not willing to share it with anyone outside of their organization — even those who they believe can provide useful information to the public if they were to become famous or famous enough. The reason for this is simple: It’s all about the patient.

Sharing Some Of The Risks Involved In Heart Surgery

The heart surgeon has a thought process that is quite different from the average person. This is due to the fact that the heart is in constant motion and that each heartbeat is a series of complex calculations. The London heart surgeon has to be able to take each one of these calculations and make the best decisions possible for their patients. But that isn’t all. The heart surgeon also needs to be able to communicate with his/her patients with enough clarity so as not to mislead them, which would cause tragic results.


The surgeon who has performed two or more open-heart surgeries has a very different thought process than someone who has only performed one open-heart surgery. Both surgeons have different mindsets and beliefs about the risks involved in performing open-heart surgeries. There are many types of surgical procedures as well as surgical techniques and techniques used for each type of procedure.
