Nov 20 - Human patient put in suspended animation for the first time

Scientists (and sci-fi fans) have been talking about suspended animation for years. The idea that the functions of the human body can somehow be put on "pause" while life-saving medical procedures are performed (or a person is sent into space, a la Alien) has long seemed untenable -- until now. According to New Scientist, doctors have successfully placed humans in suspended animation for the first time, in a trial that could have an enormous influence on the future of emergency room surgery.


The technique is officially called "emergency preservation and resuscitation" (EPR) and is being tested at the University of Maryland Medical Center on patients that arrive with acute trauma, such as a stab wound or gunshot. Given the nature of their injuries, these patients would normally have a survival rate of less than five percent.

With EPR, the patient is cooled rapidly by replacing their blood with ice-cold saline -- the heart stops beating and brain activity almost completely stops. At normal body temperatures, cells need a constant supply of oxygen to remain alive, but the cold temperature slows or stops the chemical reactions in cells, which need less oxygen as a result. The human brain can survive for around five minutes without oxygen before damage occurs, but through EPR a surgical team has two hours to work on the patient's injuries before they're warmed up and their heart is restarted.

According to Samuel Tisherman, part of the team at the Baltimore facility, full results of the trial are expected to be announced by the end of 2020 -- there are still factors to work through. While Tisherman's team has put a cool limit of two hours on a human body, it's not entirely clear exactly how long a person could remain in suspended animation without suffering any physical side effects. Nonetheless, Tisherman says the team is learning a lot as it moves forward with the trial. "I want to make clear that we're not trying to send people off to Saturn," he said. "We're trying to buy ourselves more time to save lives."

My question is what does the patient feel like during this procedure. Is it a dream or is it nothing and then you wake....

And they replace all your blood, they're saying?? I wonder what that feels like as you drift off. Other than that it's gotta be like sleep, right? Or more than that, like death. No blood, no brain activity, no conciousness at all.

Really makes you wonder what constitues conciousness if they can just bring you back like that. Your life, memories, ticks, personality, nuances, sense of self...are they all just physical/chemical imprints in the brain?

You put this together with space travel.... you're looking at the future.

Traveling to the outer solar system which could take a decade, would still take a decade but the occupants wouldnt age much.

Consciousness isn't necessarily related to the brain.

All of your cells will vibrate at a much lower rate. I can imagine the patient feels euphoria and their consciousness will go to another dimension.

I think nothing

this had its genesis in Europe I think with people falling through ice on not fully frozen lakes and falling into freezing waters I think they found that the lower the temperature the high the survival rate

I want to think that will be possible. The internet is I think available in space, I don't know about deep space. But I think one day humans will be able to jump into space and throughout the world in hyper speed through the Internet. Our bodies will die, but it would be kind of weird of still being around and being able to talk to people and traveling the universe.

It should be used for life saving surgeries but rich people will use it to get all of their plastic surgeries at one time like a car tune up. Nancy Pelosi tight face, kim Kardashian overhaul, nose job, lil kim and Char Kelly tha Fraud skin bleaching, boob job, butt job, ab sculpting, v*gina tightening, g spot injection,hairline plugs, ibaka enlargement no homo whatever you need done instead of getting it done over the course of a few years it will just be done at one time with multiple doctors. Go in the morning looking like Precious Sibide come out at night looking like a young Kenya Moore.

It's been proven that consciousness doesn't come from the brain. Consciousness is seperate

Not hard to figure out. Per the video, you’re essentially dead and non-functional. You are paused, hence the word “suspended”. If your brain is not functioning, you’re not dreaming about anything.
