Suspended Animation / Rescue cooling in emergency medical aid

Suspended Animation
Suspended Animation

Still 90 percent of severely wounded people bleeding to death on the way to hospital – mainly its lack of time. Paradox in a world full of biomedical achievements! It is evident that a person can be securely reanimated within five minutes after the heart stopped beating. What if the five minutes could be stretched up to three hours?

The Suspended Animation- Kit is a product developed to rescue people in emergencies – both cardiac sudden death and bleeding to death. The kit cools down the body temperature to 46,4°F. The self-destructing process the cells would start is suspended. The transport to the next hospital can be performed.
