The Cryonics Institutes 152nd Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 152

 

CI patient #152 was a 54 year old female from California.  The patient was not a CI member at the time of her death.

 

The patient was pronounced dead at the hospital on March 25, 2017. The patient’s next of kin contacted CI after the death had already occurred and instructions were given for how to make his wife a patient at CI. The CI protocol for post-mortem non members was followed. The next of kin contracted with a local funeral home to remove the patient from the hospital, pack her in dry ice, and store her for the minimum two week period while the contracts and funding were organized. A perfusion was not able to be performed due to these circumstances. 

 

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility, in dry ice, around midnight on April 14th, almost three weeks after death. The patient was then placed into the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature.  The human cooling program from dry ice was selected and the time needed to cool the patient to liquid nitrogen temperature 24 hours.  The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.

The Cryonics Institutes 151st Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 151

 

CI patient #151 was a 73 year old male from Ontario, Canada.  The patient was a CI member at the time of his death.

 

The patient was pronounced dead at the hospital on February 25, 2017. The patient’s family had been working on signing the contract and arranging the funds, but unfortunately, the patient’s health declined too rapidly and he died before the requirements were met. As a result, the patient was not able to be immediately accepted by CI and was not able to be perfused. The patient was transported to the local funeral home and packed in dry ice while the arrangements with CI were finalized. 

 

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility, packed in dry ice, around noon on March 3rd, approximately 6 days after death. The patient was then placed into the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature.  The human cooling program from dry ice was selected and the time needed to cool the patient to liquid nitrogen temperature 24 hours.  The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.

 

 

The Cryonics Institutes 150th Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 150

 

CI patient #150 was a 69 year old male from Florida.  The patient was a CI member at the time of his death. 

 

The patient died at home on February 1, 2017. The next of kin had made arrangements with a local funeral director for the patient’s transport. The funeral director arrived at the home promptly after receiving the first call and the patient was cooled down with ice. The funeral director then transported the patient back to the funeral home, where the patient was kept in a refrigeration unit while permits and flight arrangements were obtained. 

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility, packed in ice, at 7:15 pm on the 2nd of February, approximately 32 hours after death.  The nasal temperature was 4.2c. The perfusion was started at 8:01pm. 

 

Sara Walsh and Hillary McCauley performed the perfusion. During the perfusion there was 2 liters of 10% Eg solution used, 2 liters of 30% Eg solution used, and 23 liters of 70% VM1 solutions used. Perfusion to the body was stopped at 8:08 pm, almost immediately after beginning the perfusion, as the abdomen began to swell very quickly. There were only minimal clots noted during perfusion. The perfusion to the head was complete at 9:24 pm. The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4232. The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the left jugular vein was 1.4216. The average perfusion pressure was held at 120mm and metal cannulas were used.  Flow rate started at 2.82 liters per minute and was reduced to 0.51 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion. The nasal temperature was -4.6c at the end of the perfusion. There was only slight edema in the lips, cheeks, brow and eyelids, but none on the top of the head. There was bronzing of the skin noted on the head and face of the patient. 

 

The patient was then placed into the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature.  The human vitrification program was selected and the time needed to cool the patient to liquid nitrogen temperature was five days and 11 hours.  The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.
