Mike,you do know "Spam" when you see it,Don't You?????
Money in the DR would be better spent on more conventional measures of health care.

Not sure but dont think so

I dont know if I am responding to a computer or not, but I thought it was interesting. I was in Puerto Rico 2 weeks ago at a large academc hospital, and they were talking about it. It wasnt available yet there, so I doubt it is in the DR. If I was sick enough to need one of those I wouldnt stay in the DR. They need close monotoring due to hemolysis caused by the impeller, and consequent jaundice and anemia. I wouldnt want to be the guy having to get multiple transfusions in the DR due to the anemia either.

Don't know what you mean by SPAM as I saw this on Mad Money last night and it looks pretty good.

I am just a little concerned if I should have a heart attack I was wondering if the DR has newer technology so your chances of survival are improved or uneccesary invasive surgery could be avoided.

It was just a thought !

It's like having a nuclear power plant in the DR.
It SOUNDS like a great idea,till you think about who's running it!
By the way,"Gringo" you will be a good doctor someday,you know of where you speak!
