❤️In 1957 Earl Bakken invented the first wearable battery operated artificial pacemaker for human use. .... and founded the worlds largest manufacturer of pacemakers and defibrillators, Medtronic .
❤️ Mr Bakken passed away 2 days ago at age 94.
. The first pic is me holding the worlds smallest pacemaker, the Medtronic Micra.
❤️ the next picture is Mr Bakken holding the pacemaker he developed in 1957.
❤️61 years and now it’s a technology we take for granted and an entire sub specialty - Cardiac Electrophysiology dedicated to correcting the human heart ❤️ beat created around this invention!
❤️Rest in peace Mr Bakken.

Have you ever felt a feeling so strongly that you just couldn’t put it into words no matter how hard you tried? That feeling when you don’t know whether you’re mad or sad — whether you want to scream or bawl? Those moments when you’re told something that makes you feel like there is no air left in your lungs, and you’re just left gasping for a breath that you’ll never catch? That emotion where you find yourself unable to respond with any ounce of feeling — when you’re left staring at your own numb reflection with the realization that you have nothing else to give?
It’s in those small moments where life is crashing down all around, and it feels like my heart is being ripped from my chest that I am thankful that I serve a God who is bigger than all of those lost, unspoken emotions. He’s bigger than all the pain.
