SynCardia Total Artificial Heart Makes Maryland Man Strong for His Ailing Wife
Date:11/19/2013

ere, but kind of awestruck by the situation," Oliver recalls. "I was really thankful because there was no other alternative for me."

Similar to a donor heart transplant, the SynCardia Heart is the only device that eliminates the source and symptoms of end-stage biventricular (both sides) heart failure.

On Sept. 21, 2011, Oliver was the first Maryland resident to be discharged from the hospital without a human heart. He was able to do so with the wearable Freedom® portable driver, which powered his SynCardia Heart using precisely calibrated air pulses.

He says he particularly looked forward to sleeping in his own bed at his Maryland home and seeing his beloved chocolate Labrador retriever, Weston, which he hadn't seen since his hospitalization in June.

Oliver received a donor heart Dec. 10, 2011, at VCU Medical Center and was released from the hospital 21 days later.

Ronda Oliver, 42, who took time off from her job as an administrative assistant at a school to care for her husband, suffered a health crisis of her own when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2013. Now it was Michael's turn to take on the caregiver role.

"I believe it's all part of the plan," Oliver says. "If I didn't have the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart available, I wouldn't have been there to take care of my wife."

"I believe in the technology and I wish I could buy stock in the company," he adds.

Ronda's cancer-free now and both are back to work. Michael's experience has changed his outlook on life. He's become more spiritual and wants to spend more time with family and friends. "You've got to enjoy every moment," he says. "You have to say to your spouse that you love her every day."

The Freedom portable driver is CE approved for use in '/>"/>
