Hospital trials 'suspended animation'


Posted on Tuesday, 1 April, 2014 | Comment icon 20 comments

Can suspended animation save lives ? Image Credit: Anastasia Puscian / US Navy
A hospital in Pittsburgh is trialling a new technique designed to save patients on the brink of death.
The method works by preserving the patient in a near-death state for as long as possible to increase the time doctors have to restart their heart or to treat injuries such as gunshot wounds.

The process involves replacing the patient's blood with a special saline solution which halts all cellular activity within the body. Despite being clinically dead, the patient can still be brought back from this state by having their blood restored again once the injury has been successfully treated.

Researchers had previously tested the method out on pigs during a series of trial runs in which the animals were brought back to life even up to several hours later with no apparent physical or cognitive impairments.

"We've always assumed that you can't bring back the dead," said Peter Rhee who helped develop the technique. "But it's a matter of when you pickle the cells."

She send Jesus told her she had more to do. But what does she do? And has she kept doing it? As Jesus said?

Pickle? Well at least the survivors if any would have something to chew on...

It will certainly increase the numbers of NDEs reported if successful. Here's hoping some lives can be saved with this technique.

But what does she do? And has she kept doing it? As Jesus said? At 90 years old it doesn't really matter what she does, bless her heart.

At 90 years old it doesn't really matter what she does, bless her heart. True but the post said Jesus told her..."many years ago" quote: My Mother did claim she saw Jesus when she had her by-pass surgury many years ago. She also had a pacemaker put in. She send Jesus told her she had more to do. She's going to be 90 and still going. So if Jesus said she had 'more to do' many years ago, its a valid question, with an assumption that she had to DO something. Right?

Simply to 'live' is good enough...

Could this apply to patients with say a terminal disease? Say cancer or AIDS. Could we possibly find some sort of cure or way to ensure the life of someone with a terminal disease?

replacing all of a patient's blood with a cold saline solution, which rapidly cools the body and stops almost all cellular activity. "If a patient comes to us two hours after dying you can't bring them back to life. This is lifted straight from an episode of 'The 6Million $ Gringo' in which Jamie Sommers was declared dead, but revived by cryogenics... she went on to kick tuhis with her own bionics.

We really need to update our definition of death. The heart ceasing to beat shouldn't be called 'dead' because technically it's not. 'Dead' should be a term meaning all brain activity is gone and organs can no longer function. In that definition these people are not 'dead', they are in a suspended state.
