Abstract

Every health care professional does his best for mankind, but handling a patient on extracorporeal circulation places cardiac surgeons, cardiac anesthetists, and perfusionists in a separate class of health professional altogether. This is a humble effort to reminisce the research work done by Dr. Frank Gollan since his instrumental time to the current day practice, without whom it is impossible to imagine open heart surgery and circulatory arrest.
