A heart bypass operation relies on the talents of a surgical team but they can't do it alone - they need the help of a heart-lung bypass machine to keep the patient alive. This machine keeps the chest organs motionless while a continuous supply of oxygen and nutrients is pumped through the circuit. Watch the procedure above and witness the tense moments between life and death.
