The Cryonics Institutes 142nd Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 142

 

CI patient #142 was a 61 year old male from New York.  The patient was a CI member at the time of his death.

 

The patient died in the hospital during the late evening on October 23, 2016.  The family made arrangements with a local funeral director for the patient’s transport. The funeral director arrived at the hospital promptly after death was pronounced and the patient was taken back to the funeral home and put into refrigeration immediately for cooling while the transit permit and flight arrangements were obtained.  

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility, packed in ice, at 12:45 am on the 25th of October, approximately 25 hours after death.  The nasal temperature was 6.9c. Many clots were noted during the perfusion, but there was still good return from the jugular veins.

 

Hillary McCauley performed the perfusion.  The perfusion was completed at 2:20 am.  During the perfusion there were 5 liters of 10% Eg solution used, 8 liters of 30% Eg solution used, and 15 liters of 70% VM1 solutions used.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4152.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the left jugular vein was 1.422.  The average perfusion pressure was held at 130mm and metal cannulas were used.  Flow rate started at 0.94 liters per minute and was reduced to 0.34 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion. The nasal temperature was 1.9c at the end of the perfusion. Considerable dehydration of the head and face was noted along with a bronzing color of the skin. There was only slight edema noted in the eyelids. The bronzing color of the skin was very evident in the neck and shoulders of the patient, but very little on the patient’s extremities. 

 

The patient was then placed in 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.

The Cryonics Institutes 141st Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 141

 

CI patient #141 was a 56 year old male from Ohio.  The patient was a CI member at the time of his death.

 

The patient had arranged for local standby prior to his death and was under hospice care at the time of his death. The hospice nurse was helpful and cooperative during the process. The patient died in the morning on October 14, 2016. The patient’s head, neck, and chest were covered with water ice promptly after his death was pronounced. 40,000 units of Heparin were administered into the patient’s pre-existing port, followed by a normal saline flush. Chest compressions were utilized to circulate the Heparin and facilitate the cooling. More ice was packed on and around the patient and he was then taken to the funeral home and kept in ice while transit permits were obtained.

 

 

The patient was then driven to the CI facility and arrived, packed in ice, at 1:30 pm on the 14th of October, approximately 5 hours after death.  The nasal temperature was 12.2c. No clots were noted during the perfusion.  There was good return from the jugular veins.

 

Sara Walsh and Hillary McCauley performed the perfusion.  The perfusion was completed at 4:00 pm.  During the perfusion there were 10 liters of 10% Eg solution used, 10 liters of 30% Eg solution used, and 44 liters of 70% VM1 solutions used.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4179.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the left jugular vein was 1.4192.  The average perfusion pressure was held at 125mm and metal cannulas were used.  Flow rate started at 1.9 liters per minute and was reduced to 1.25 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion. The nasal temperature was 3.2c at the end of the perfusion. Considerable dehydration of the head and face was noted along with a bronzing color of the skin. There was no obvious edema.  The bronzing of the skin was also noted on the patient’s extremities, providing evidence of a successful perfusion of the body, as well as the head.   

 

The patient was then placed in 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

The Cryonics Institutes 140th Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 140

 

CI patient #140 was an 84 year old male from California.  The patient was a CI member at the time of his death.

 

The next of kin had contracted with a local funeral director to provide initial cooling and transport services.  The patient died in the morning on September 30, 2016.  The patient’s head was covered in water ice by the hospital staff and the local funeral director injected heparin and performed chest compressions.  The patient was then taken to the funeral home and kept in water ice and refrigeration while transit permits were obtained.

 

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility, packed in ice, at 9:10am on the 2nd of October, approximately 48 hours after death.  The nasal temperature was 4c. A few clots were observed during the beginning of the perfusion, but none after that.  There was good return from the jugular veins.

 

Hillary McCauley performed the perfusion.  The perfusion was completed at 10:30 am.  During the perfusion there were 6 liters of 30% Eg solution used, and 15 liters of 70% VM1 solutions used.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4277.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the left jugular vein was 1.4335.  The average perfusion pressure was held at 132mm and metal cannulas were used.  Flow rate started at 1.6 liters per minute and was reduced to .4 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion.  Considerable dehydration of the head and face was noted along with a bronzing color of the skin.  A small amount of edema was noted in the eyelids.  There was some uptake of cryoprotective solution noted in the body as was evidenced by some dehydration and bronzing of the skin. There was no circulation below the knees.

 

The patient was then placed in 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.
