The Future is Now


I read about surgeons at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania are set to begin suspended animation trails by dramatically cooling down trauma victims to keep them alive during critical operations.This technique involves internal rather than external cooling. A team of surgeons will remove all of the patient’s blood, replacing it with a cold saline solution; the cold fluid is administered through a large tube, called a cannula, which is placed into the aorta, the largest artery in the body.

I believe it will be a success in 10-20 years and it will help the survival rate go higher the 7% or maybe be used on me if needed in the future.
