"Not something that happens every day," said Sunnybrook manager of digital communications Shawn Yu.

The social media team of Toronto's Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre began to live tweet a coronary artery bypass graft Thursday morning, provinding an incredible window into a world many aren't familar with.

Starting at 8 a.m.Sunnybrook began tweeting updates and images of the surgery bearing the hashtag #SBheart. People interested can pose questions which will be answered in real time.

Hospital spokeswoman Marie Sanderson says the idea behind the event is to educate the public about heart disease.

The hospital believes it will be the first Canadian facility to live tweet heart surgery. But it's definitely not the first to bring the twittersphere into the operating room.
