A team of doctors at the University of Maryland School of Medicine placed people in alınmış suspended animation kez for the first time as part of an attempt by medical professionals to correct traumatic injuries such as gunshot or stab wounds that might otherwise result. according to death New Scientist Exclusive.
Suspended animation – or acil emergency protection resuscitation da in medical care – involves rapidly cooling a patient's body to 10 to 15 degrees Celsius (50 to 59 Fahrenheit) by replacing their blood with an ice-cold salt solution.
This slows brain recovery enough to take surgeons time – a few hours – long enough to run life-saving surgeries.
This is because oxygen is no longer carried to the brain and thus stops energy production. Without cooling, even five minutes without brain function can cause irreversible damage.
After the operation, the patient's body becomes warm again and the heart is restarted.
The team was allowed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to conduct the trial, as there was no alternative treatment, even without the patient's consent.
One caution note: The team has not yet announced the results of the investigation – or if any patient has recovered from the distress.
Leading researcher Samuel Tisherman said New Scientist He hoped to announce the results by the end of 2020.
"After proving it works here, we can extend the benefit of this technique to help patients survive in a way that doesn't otherwise." Said.
