Absolutely amazing, a patient undergoes brain surgery while he's awake and invites cameras in on the operation for the benefit of, well, us! This was captured by my media centre and I found it so awesome I had to share it with youtube. It has been heavily cut to save on time. It was originally a 1 hour program ...go science!
+++++++++++++++++ VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: +++++++++++++++++ FIRST VIDEO: 8:43 - Speech arrest testing (Zapping parts the brain while he's speaking. If he goes mute while they zap a certain part, they can't remove that part because he needs it for speech) FIRST VIDEO: 11:19 - Speech arrest happens. SECOND VIDEO: 12:06 - Peter answers a question while a piece of brain is being cut out. The question is: "If you recorded it, will you be watching this when you return home?" SECOND VIDEO: 14:13 - A phone-in question is asked, the surgeon didn't catch the question however as he was busy removing a massive chunk of tumor-infested brain!
The team which helped save Peter's life:
Paul Grundy: Surgeon Ryan Waters: Registrar Crispin Weidmann: Anaesthetist John Drinkwater: Operating Department Practitioner (ODP) Pete Gladwell: Surgical Care Practitioner Ronilo Ramos: Scrub Nurse Coral Martin: Circulating Nurse Sara Baker: Recovery Nurse Lou Taylor: Recovery Nurse
