Series IV: Audiovisual Material, 1980-2002 [series]:

The videos collected in the Audiovisual Material series are primarily records of notable accomplishments in artificial heart research from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. Series IV consists of four sub-series: Educational/Instructional Videos, News Broadcasts, Patient Interviews, and Dr. Willem Kolff Interviews. Videos in the first sub-series include animated diagrams of the Sterling Engine and background information on specific heart assist devices, such as the Heartmate Ventricular Assist Device developed by Thermedics Inc. The second sub-series includes a press conference regarding the National Institutes of Health's decision to cut artificial heart research funding and local news coverage of clinical ventricular assist device implants, particularly the early 1990's story of Michael Templeton. Two of the patient interview tapes in the third sub-series are restricted by HMD's Access to Health Information of Individuals policy; the other two tapes are silent footage used in the Michael Templeton news broadcasts. The last sub-series is raw footage of Watson interviewing artificial heart pioneer Willem Kolff, whose laboratory received support from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). The interviews were conducted as part of a series sponsored by the Smithsonian National Museum of American History; they also include footage of Watson discussing the NHLBI's involvement with artificial heart research. The first three-subseries are arranged chronologically by date and the fourth is arranged numerically by tape number.
