Sheba Doctors Fly to Cyprus to Perform Lifesaving Cardiac Procedure

Sheba Doctors Fly to Cyprus to Perform Lifesaving Cardiac Procedure
During the process of childbirth, a 29-year-old woman from Nicosia, Cyprus, experienced a serious problem in her left main cardiac arterial region. In order to perform a lifesaving procedure, the physicians required an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine (ECMO), which functions as a heart-lung-bypass device to pump and oxygenate a patient’s blood outside the body. The ECMO machine gives the person’s heart and lungs time to rest. Unfortunately, the Nicosia hospital does not have this medical technology on-site.

The doctors in Cyprus were running out of time to save this patient’s life. So in order to access an ECMO machine, they called upon their cardiac colleagues at the Leviev Heart Center at Sheba Medical Center

Within the short span of only seven hours, a skilled team of four cardiac specialists transported an ECMO machine to the Cypriot hospital, where they performed the lifesaving procedure, stabilized the patient, and airlifted her to Israel for further treatment at Sheba. Presently, this patient is recovering nicely at the Leviev Heart Center.

Working together, the doctors from Sheba and Nicosia are true heroes!
