EMERGENCY RESPONSE FOR A CRYONICS INSTITUTE MEMBER WHO IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION OR LEGALLY DECEASED
If the person is in critical condition or hospice care, collect all required legal documents relating to suspension and confirm plans for standby and transport as soon as possible.
If the person has been legally pronounced dead and is currently a CI member, then entirely cover and cool his or her head with bags of crushed ice.
Do NOT place ice on a Member until there has been a legal pronouncement of death -- attempt to obtain a pronouncement as soon as possible. <checklist>
In order to fund a suspension at the $28,000 fee, a member must sign all required CI documents themselves with their signature witnessed by a notary. The membership documents and funding must be in place for a minimum of two weeks otherwise, the suspension fee will cost $35,000 and other nonmember restrictions may apply.
In either situation, contact the Cryonics Institute as soon as possible at:
