Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 162
CI patient #162 was a 76 year old male from Toronto. The patient was not a CI member
at the time of his death.
The patient was pronounced dead at the hospital on October 11, 2017. The patient’s next
of kin contacted CI after the death had already occurred and instructions were given for
how to make him 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 pack him in dry ice and
store him 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, on December 24th, approximately ten
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
was 24 hours. The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.
