Tofy Mussivand is an Iranian physician and engineer and a cardiologist in Canada.
He is known for the invention of Artificial Cardiac Pump. Cardiac pump or cardiac bypass pump or heart-lung machine temporarily takes over the function of breathing and pumping blood for a patient. It generally has two parts, the pump and the aerator. Cardiac pumps are most often used in heart surgery, so that a patient's heart can be disconnected from the body for longer than the twenty minutes or so it takes a prepared patient to die.
