Artificial heart recipient Mary Lund, 40, remained unconscious in a Minneapolis hospital but doctors were encouraged after finding that her other organs were not damaged irreversibly when a suspected virus destroyed her own heart last week. Lund, the first woman to receive an artificial heart, "still exhibits reflex response," said Dr. Fredarick Gobel, spokesman for the heart implant team at Abbott Northwestern Hospital. Lund was listed in critical but stable condition.
