Artificial heart no. 3.

Physicians at Humana Hospital Audubon in Louisville, Ky., this week gave an upbeat report for Murray P. Haydon, the third recipient of an artifical heart; the heart was implanted Feb. 17. Unlike his predecessor, William J. Schroeder, who needed a second operation to correct massive bleeding shortly after his Nov. 25 heart impact, Haydon, as of Wednesday, had no complications. Doctors say Haydon's chances for a full recovery are good because he was healthier at the time of the implant than the previous two recipients, Schroeder and Barney B. Clark.

By midweek, Schroeder was recovering from an unexplained fever that started about three weeks ago.
