The Cryonics Institutes 188th Patient

Saturday, 8 August 2020 by System Administrator

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 188

CI patient #188 was a 55 year old female from Virginia. The patient was a CI member at the time of her death. Standby, stabilization, and transportation arrangements were made in advance with Suspended Animation (SA). Suspended Animation arrived with their equipment for standby at the patient’s home, where she was under hospice care.

The patient deanimated the morning of July 15, 2020. After the patient was legally pronounced deceased and released to SA, they performed their procedures for cool-down and stabilization. (A detailed case report will be provided by Suspended Animation.) After SA’s procedures were complete, the patient was packed in ice and prepared for transportation by private charter jet. The patient arrived at the CI facility, packed in ice, at 6:25pm on July 15th, approximately nine hours after death. Nasal temperature was 3.2c upon arrival. The patient was transferred to the operating table and the perfusion was started at 7:20pm.

Hillary Martenson performed the perfusion. During the perfusion there was 1 liter of 10% Eg solution used, 3 liters of 30% Eg solution used, and 20 liters of 70% VM1 solutions used. The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4214. The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the left jugular vein was 1.4207. The average perfusion pressure was held at 120mm and metal cannulas were used. Flow rate started at .90 liters per minute and was reduced to .80 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion. Nasal temperature was -6.1c at the end of the perfusion.

The patient arrived with edema throughout her body. A full body perfusion was attempted, but the patient’s abdomen began to swell almost immediately, so the body perfusion was stopped. The perfusion to the head was complete at 8:25 pm and was successful. Dehydration of the head and face was noted along with a bronzing color of the skin.

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 12 hours. The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.

The Cryonics Institutes 187th Patient

The Cryonics Institutes 186th Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 186

 

CI patient #186 was an 81 year old male from Vancouver British Columbia. The patient was a CI member and hospitalized at the time of his death.  

 

The patient died on April 22, 2020.  Because of restrictions in travel and very limited flights, due to the corona virus, it was determined that it would not be possible to get the patient to CI within 48 hours for a perfusion.  Because there was nobody available to perfuse the patient in his area, a decision was made to straight freeze the patient without cryoprotective solutions. The patient was placed in dry ice after he died.  The patient was stored in dry ice in Vancouver, BC until transit could be arranged to the US.  Once the details for transit were in place, the patient was transported to Detroit Metro Airport, where he was picked up and brought to the facility.  The patient arrived at our facility on April 29, 2020.

 

The patient was then transferred to the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature.  The human dry ice program was selected and the time needed to cool the patient to liquid nitrogen temperature was 25 hours.  The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.
