Glasgow Skeptics visit Cafe Scientifique: Le coeur a ses raisons…
September 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Please note: The venue is Waterstones on Sauchiehall Street, and the start time is set for 7pm.
So we don’t have an official Glasgow Skeptics event on this date … but our friends over in Cafe Scientifique have got something to tickle your fancy instead.
This month’s topic: Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ignore
Speaker: Professor Nawwar Al-Attar
Professor Al-Attar will take us through a journey of severe heart failure, the options available and the role of surgical techniques in the management of these incredibly sick patients. He will relate the tale of one very remarkable patient where love really did conquer all and save his life! His journey after an acute heart attack will be followed and the remarkable contributions of loved ones, nurses, physiotherapists, intensive care physicians, surgeons and the donor discussed (and in part shown on film!).
Professor Nawwar Al-Attar is a Consultant Cardiac and Transplant Surgeon and Director of Transplantation as well as Director of the Scottish National Advanced Heart Failure Service.
He specialises in heart transplantation, total arterial coronary artery bypass grafting and valve repair. He is a member of many influential committees and research groups.
