Artificial Hearts

Hi Everyone,
I am currently in my first year of sixth form and am completing an extended project on the future of artificial hearts. A part of this project will include religious and ethical views on the devices.
There are two types of these devices: ones with a constant flow (i.e. they don't beat or pump as a human heart would), and ones which have a pumping action.
If you have any opinion on this, as in if you would have one if needed as opposed to a transplant or if you think that making something like this is right, I would greatly appreciate your comments, from both a religious and personal point of view.
Thankyou for your help
Laura Myers
