The heart is a muscular organ about the size of a fist located just behind and slightly left of the breastbone.

And is primarily responsible for pumping blood and distributing oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, that is why it is considered as one of the most important organs of the body.

And I’m sure nobody has seen anyone without a heart and one can’t even imagine living without a heart but now it’s not like that.

There’s a woman named Salwa Hussain, living in Britain who has no heart in her body.

This woman carries her heart in a Backpack

She carries her artificial heart in a bag with her whenever she goes anywhere. It’s like this because she underwent surgery which ended her life without a heart in the body. This is a very rare case in the world and she is the second woman without a heart in the body.

The British Newspaper” Daily Mail” reported that Salwa Hussain, age 39, is the only one who lives in this medical way in Britain.

Curious about the bag?

The bag carries a device with two batteries weighing 6.8 Kg, which is an electric motor and a pump to push the air. The batteries push the air into the plastic bag in the patient’s chest through tubes, to allow blood circulation in the body.

The woman is brave enough to handle this medical condition and always has a smile on her face which is appreciatable.

Selwa, mother to a boy aged five and an 18-month-old girl, said:

‘I was so ill before and after the surgery that it has taken me all this time to get fit enough to come home.’

Experts who examined Selwa’s failed heart concluded that she had a condition called cardiomyopathy that can, in very rare cases, be triggered by pregnancy.

When Selwa first complained of chest pains at the start of the year, GPs mistakenly thought she was suffering from a digestive illness.

The £86,000 artificial heart – made by an American company – was fitted during a six-hour operation performed by surgeon Diana Garcia Saez, and assisted by Harefield’s head of transplantation surgery, Mr.Andre Simon. Harefield is the only UK center using the device.

We pray that she stays healthy and happy ahead.
