Hey everyone, I'm new here. Used to be on HBP a few years back until things started getting weird over there. Kinda coming back to the community.

1K awesome things #380: Hearing someone’s heartbeat

While lying on the grass, lazing on the couch, or relaxing in some crumpled sheets, you sometimes just fall into the moment with someone you love. After the conversation dies down and the background noise fades away you smile silently and melt into an arms-and-legs embrace. Gaze into their eyes, push your ears to their chest, and then shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Just listen.

Recorded at the apex while lying on the stomach, before getting out of bed in the morning. There is noise during the first 40 seconds, because the stethoscope was not pressed tight enough,...

My heart, literally

My boyfriend is pressing down extremely hard on my chest with the shot glass, heart is exploding!

Recorded after a jaunt on my exercise bike. There’s a short breath hold starting at 29 seconds, because I was curious how my heart would react while it was already racing.

Heartbeat of a female beating kinda fast,  drinking coffee
Weird racing and pausing after 3:00
Sitting and smoking, then stood up and did pushes and stretches. Irregularities in rhythm constantly changing

Always such a good recording! You get the depth of the sound so well.

Calling all friends of the Cardio-Community


If you’re reading this, and you’re

• a new member of the community who’s been dealt with unethically or made uncomfortable

• a person who’s been harassed on the cardio community or still is

• a former friend who would just needs to vent out past bad memories from this community and needs an outlet


My inbox is now open. Send me a dm on my tumblr. I am here for you. I am done with my fellow cardio fellows being continuously harassed in this community and it’s about time I do something so please, allow me to help you.

Hello,

Thanks for the continued interest,

I should just mention that the inbox is located at the top of this tumblr, labelled


                 => Call Post for Cardio Community <=


I just also need to make it clear that I do not intend to hurt anyone at all. Thats not what this is about. 

What this is about, is to let those who had hardships in a community that was supposed to be caring about each other, (that somehow ended up in a complete mess where the veterans/newbies alike are becoming absolutely disgusting for their own pleasure, ) have their voices heard. 

So, if this is you, speak up (if you want to of course), because I - personally - want to see an end to this disgrace. 

Thanks,

HeartAngel

Hello aunt scripty, this may be a really dumb question because it may or may not exist, but has there been a case of anyone that lived with two hearts? If so how do you think it would work? How would it work during CPR/etc? Would having two hearts hinder anyone? Would it pump too much blood because of two hearts!? (Doctor Who, amirite?) Haha... nope, jk, as much as I'm a fan, I'm just asking out of pure curiosity.

Okay, this ask is really, really cool. Thank you for this!

So there are two ways this comes into being.

One is a birth defect. The only report I was able to find of someone being born with two hearts is a guy by the name of George Lippert, who also had three legs. (The third leg had 6 toes, for a total of 16. The things I have learned for making this blog.) At autopsy it was discovered that he had two hearts as well, which…. Sure! That said, this was all in the 19th and very early 20th centuries, so we have no idea if a) it was true or one final prank/an attempt to make some cash by his family or doctors; b) the second heart worked or, like the third leg, if it was just…. there and useless. It was never studied or even discovered in vivo, so we don’t know how it worked. 

It’s likely that he basically absorbed his twin in the womb but was left  with some, well, leftovers. This is called a parasitic twin.

The other thing I’ve heard of regarding a human with two hearts is… adding a second heart.

There are two types of transplants: orthotopic transplants, in which an organ is straight-up removed and replaced, and a heterotropic transplant, in which a weak-but-still-functioning organ is augmented by adding in an extra. Sometimes this is done with kidneys, but occasionally, we graft a second heart into a human and send them back into the wild.

So there was a phenomenal case of a guy showing up to an Italian ER in cardiogenic shock from his two hearts having conflicting rhythm. He coded, got zapped, got a new pacemaker, and left the hospital. Dude was apparently 71, which is kind of badass: 71, two hearts, and death can’t touch him. This guy is clearly an action hero in the making.

Sometimes, the person recovers enough not to need their second heart anymore.

Hannah Clark is a teenager in South Wales who had serious cardiac complications when she was just a baby, had a second heart grafted in, and then had it removed when she was 16. She was suffering immune complications from the grafted tissue, and her native heart had had the time to grow strong enough to carry her itself. She’s the first person in the UK to have a transplant reversed.

In the heterotropic grafts, it seems like what happens is that the transplanted heart’s rhythm is basically paired to the native heart’s, so that one almost paces the other.

As for CPR, it’s unaffected by the number of hearts. Like our Italian man, your character might run into trouble if the two hearts beat at different rates. 

This is an area of fiction where you can kind of make up what you want, because the two hearts idea functionally breaks the Rule of Reality. Just remember that if they were born with two hearts, they have to work together long enough and well enough to get that character out of the womb and into the world and raised to (whatever age they’re at), so however the system works at baseline, it has to work (at least until it goes wrong).

So best of luck with your story!!

xoxo, Aunt Scripty
