World’s smallest heart pump

A Singapore university has developed a heart pump weighing just 50 grams that it claims is the smallest in the world.

A key feature of the heart pump developed by the nanyang technological university is that it can be used by patients without the need for open heart surgery, said Freddy Boey on Monday. The pump has a tiny engine powered by a battery.
