Transcript of cryonics

CRYONICS The process of freezing and storing the body of a diseased, recently deceased person to prevent tissue decomposition so that at some future time the person might be brought back to life upon development of new medical cures. CRYONIC PRESERVATION:
Full body preservation
Only head preservation WHO PAYS FOR THAT?
Mainly insurance companies WHEN DOES THE PROCESS START?
Immediately after death
Once the patient is pronounced legally dead NO TIME TO LOSE
It takes place inside the vehicle that transports the patient to the foundation. Brain cells are the first to die so they must be cooled right away. Corpses must be taken straight into the operating theatre. Patients blood is taken out and substituted by a special fluid Two surgeons open chest cavity and tubes are inserted into the heart to provide an entry-exit point for the cryonic preservation fluid. They are connected to a pump that makes fluid circulate More than 60% of the water in the body is removed. Crio protective fluid is not always well received by the body due to the high concentration of chemicals. THE BRAIN deserves a closer attention as it is the core of a patient’s emotions, awareness, memory, intelligence… PROBLEMS:Formation of ice crystals that damage bodies and could cause fracturing FINAL STAGE
Patients are moved to a capsule shared by other 3 bodies FAMILIES ARE WELCOME to visit after the whole process SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY AND FAMILIES ARE DIVIDED AT CRYONICS There is no scientific evidence that patients will probably be brought back to life We are just delaying the end Will future society preserve dead bodies
as they are doing at present? ALCOR think they help relatives and patients as they create hope Alcor staff are confident that future nanotechnology will offer a safer reanimation of bodies
