Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 202
CI patient #202 was an 85 year old male from Canada. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death, but he did not have a contract or funding in place with CI. The patient died on January 14th around 1pm. The patient was put in dry ice. The patient arrived at the CI facility at 8pm on January 15th.
The patient was then transferred to 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 and a half days. The reason the vitrification program was selected was because another patient that was perfused was going to be simultaneously cooled with this patient. The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.
