Research breakthroughs funded by the AHA over the years研究的里程碑
Correcting heart defects in newborns
1966年，博士. William Rashkind developed a technique to correct septal defects in newborns, showing that major procedures could be performed inside the heart via a catheter.
博士研究. William Conner in 1968 showed that the drug cholestyramine can lower cholesterol in the blood. 这种药至今仍在使用.
Research shows lifesaving value of 心肺复苏
Drs. 威廉Kouwenhoven, James Jude and Guy Knickerbocker reported in 1961 that 心肺复苏 provides blood flow to vital organs for people in cardiac arrest.
Dr. Andrew Marks developed drug-coated stents to prevent the tiny wire tubes from accumulating fatty plaques. These stents keep blocked arteries open while releasing medicine.
