Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 214

 

CI patient #214 was a 78 year old male from Colorado. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death. 

 

The patient died at home under hospice care at approximately 1:33 pm on October 2, 2021.   Immediately upon pronouncement of legal death, the patient was placed in a portable ice bath.  50,000 units of heparin and 100ml 20% w/v sodium citrate were administered intravenously.  Malox was administered into the stomach through a Combi Tube.  Chest compressions were performed for approximately an hour.  The local funeral director quickly obtained a transit permit.  A private jet was hired in advance to fly the patient to Michigan.  The patient remained in the portable ice bath during the flight to Michigan and during transit from the airport to the CI facility.

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility at 9:25pm.  The nasal temperature upon his arrival was 1.7.

 

The perfusion started at 10:08pm.  The head and body were perfused simultaneously, using four metal canula.  The perfusion was completed at 11:20pm.  During the perfusion there were 1.5 liters of 10% Eg solution and 3.5 liters of 30% Eg solution used, and 45 liters of 70% VM1 solution used.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4249.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the left jugular vein was 1.4162. The average perfusion pressure was held at 116mm.  Flow rate started at .77 liters per minute and was reduced to 0.76 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion. The nasal temperature was -10.1c at the end of the perfusion.

 

There were no blood clots noted during the perfusion and there was good flow from both of the jugular veins. Significant dehydration of the head and face was noted along with a bronzing of the skin and no swelling. There was no distention of the abdomen.  Dehydration and bronzing of the skin was visible through the trunk and on all extremities though to a lesser degree than the body. The perfusion to both the head and body was successful.

 

The patient was then transferred to the computer controlled cooling unit 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 11 hours.  The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 213

 

CI patient #213 was an 80 year old male from New York. The patient was not a CI member at the time of his death. 

 

The patient died on July 12, 2021.  The patient was kept on dry ice at a funeral home until the family could reach a decision.  The family decided to sign a contract with CI.  Once the contract was signed and the funds were transferred, 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 September 8, 2021.

 

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.

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 212

CI patient #212 was an 88 year old male from Florida that recently moved to Michigan because of his poor health. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death.

The patient arrived at the CI facility at 12:30 am.  The patient was transferred to the operating table in the perfusion room and was immediately covered with more ice. The nasal temperature upon his arrival was 14c.
