The Cryonics Institutes 206th Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 206

CI patient #206 was an 89 year old female from California. The patient was a CI member at the time of her death. 

The patient died at home under hospice care at approximately 11:55pm on April 10, 2021. Suspended Animation team members administered cryonics medications and placed the patient in an ice bath to cool the patient.  They worked with a local funeral director to have the patient flown to Michigan, packed in water ice.

The patient arrived at the CI facility at 9:33am on April 12th, about 33 hours and 30 minutes after death.

Kristen Orme performed the surgery for perfusion.  The nasal temperature at the start of the perfusion was 2.3c.  The perfusion started at 10:15am and was terminated at 10:46am due to extreme edema in the patient’s head and face.  Only the patient’s head was perfused because of the extended time delay from the time of death until the perfusion started.  During the perfusion there were 3 liters of 30% Eg solution and 6 liters of 70% VM1 solution used.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4009.  The average perfusion pressure was held at 111mm and metal cannulas were used.  Flow rate started at 1.3 liters per minute and was reduced to 1.2 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion. The nasal temperature was -1.8c at the end of the perfusion.

There were very minimal blood clots noted during the perfusion and there was good flow from both of the jugular veins at the start, but the flow soon slowed as the fluids were being forced into the tissues and not coming out.

The patient was then transferred to the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature.  The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 205

 

CI patient #205 was a 79 year old male from Texas. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death. 

 

The patient died on February 21, 2021.  The patient was found dead at his home, Sunday morning, from an apparent heart attack.  It is estimated that death occurred sometime between midnight and 8am.  Because the death was not observed, the patient did not receive prompt cooling or heparin.  A local funeral director that the patient had previously contracted with, retrieved the patient from the place of death and brought him back to their funeral home.  The patient was packed in water ice and refrigerated while the funeral director worked to obtain a transit permit and arrange a flight.  The patient flew out of Texas on February 22nd at 8am.  The patient arrived at Detroit Metro Airport at 4:30pm, where he was picked up and brought to the CI facility.  The patient arrived at our facility at 7:35pm.  The nasal temperature of the patient was 2.9c.  The perfusion started at 7:50pm.  Many blood clots were observed.  At the start of the perfusion there was good flow of effluents from the left jugular vein and very minimal flow from the right jugular.  The perfusion was terminated at 8:15pm because of excessive edema in the head and face, and the flow from the jugulars had ceased.

 

The patient was then transferred to the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature.  The cooling of the patient to -196 took 88 hours.  The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.

The Cryonics Institutes 204th Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 204

CI patient #204 was a 90 year old female from Norway. The patient was a CI member at the time of her death. 

The patient died on January 13th, 2021.   The patient was frozen in dry ice, because a perfusion could not be arranged.  The patient was kept in dry ice at a funeral home in Oslo, Norway until transportation arrangements could be made.

The patient was transported on dry ice to the CI facility on February 18th, 2021. 

The patient was then transferred to the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature.  The straight freeze 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.
