New methods could halt the dying process

13 posts in this topic

The exact point at which a person is dead and beyond resuscitation is becoming increasingly blurred.

As scientists learn more about the point at which the body dies, the less it seems we actually know about the process. Previously it had been accepted that irreversible brain damage can occur only a few minutes after someone's heart stops, but now it seems that it may be possible to revive someone even up to an hour after being declared clinically dead.

They may be able to temporarily stop the dying process, but until they can reverse the aging process, don't wake me, lol!

The use of hypothermia in cardiac incidents is integral to currently used resuscitation algorithms. The method does make a statistical difference in recovery. It will interesting to see results when this fully transfers to the field for widespread EMS application.

A little more investing in Stem cell research to stop aging, and we can call it a ball game.

Yeah, and I'm not totally certain about this, but I heard that some NFL medic teams have special ice packs to put around a perceived severe neck injury for a similar purpose... slowing down the injury progression prior to getting in a hospital. Don't know if it's in widespread use.

Wow think thats a great feat for medical science. But can they cure the person from the disease that caused him/her to die?
