Subject: "Frozen Hearts"

... Pardon me, if this has already been mentioned here.  Some days ago,
I came across a documentary program of interest on the Discovery Health
cable TV channel here in the U.S.   It is called "Frozen Hearts". It
described two distinct methods of open heart surgery.  The Western
method uses heart lung machines.  The Russian method, apparently
developed out of necessity utilizes hypothermia.  The program contrasted
both methods showing similar surgeries on two children
with heart problems, one American and one Russian.  I don't know when or
if this program will be rerun, but I recommend it to anyone interested
if they are able to find it.  The Discovery Channel eventually usually
offers these programs for sale on videotape, so I'd recommend its
purchase as well...  
    Best Regards!  John B. Krug
