Samuel Tisherman Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation [EPR] involves rapidly cooling a person to around 10 to 15°C [50 degrees F] by replacing all of their blood with ice-cold saline
Exclusive: Tisherman First Time Humans Suspended Animation
For the first time in the US doctors have placed humans in suspended animation, as part of a trial that aims to make it possible to repair traumatic injuries that would otherwise cause death.
11-20-19, NewScientist.com -- Samuel Tisherman, at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, told New Scientist that his team of medics had placed at least one patient in suspended animation. Recently at a symposium at the New York Academy of Sciences, Ariane Lewis, director of the division of neuro-critical care at NYU Langone Health, said she thought Tisherman's work was important, but that it was just first steps.
Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation [EPR] involves rapidly cooling a person to around 10 to 15°C [50 degrees F] by replacing all of their blood with ice-cold saline. The patient's brain activity almost completely stops. They are then disconnected from the cooling system and their body – which would otherwise be classified as dead – is moved to the operating theatre. A surgical team then has 2 hours to fix the person’s injuries before they are warmed up and their heart restarted. Tisherman says he hopes to be able to announce the full results of the trial by the end of 2020.
The trial was given the go-ahead by the US Food and Drug Administration. The FDA made it exempt from needing patient consent as the participants’ injuries are likely to be fatal and there is no alternative treatment.
Animal studies showed that pigs with acute trauma could be cooled for 3 hours, stitched up and resuscitated. Tisherman said, “We felt it was time to take it to our [human] patients. Now we are doing it and we are learning a lot as we move forward with the trial. Once we can prove it works here, we can expand the utility of this technique to help patients survive that otherwise would not.” More here

There was a time in Pres Trump's past when he was uninformed and supported 'a woman's right to choose' killing her child. But then he became educated on this issue and now supports the 'CHILD'S right to LIVE!'
