The 110th patient of the Cryonics Institute (CI) is an 82-year-old woman whose primary occupation was chef, including at a restaurant that she started herself. She and her husband divorced after having a daughter, but the couple re-united and lived together for 20 years without remarrying. The ex-husband and daughter tended to the patient during her terminal illness — and assisted with cryopreservation. The ex-husband encouraged the patient to make cryonics arrangements with CI, and the patient agreed.
Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 109
CI patient #109 was a 72 year old male from Scotland who died from an apparent heart attack. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death.
The patient died at home on February 28th, 2012 at approximately 2am. The death of the patient was not discovered until later that morning. A local funeral director worked with our cooperating funeral director in London to have the patient transported to London. It was determined that a perfusion would not be effective, and therefore a perfusion was not attempted. The patient was cooled in dry ice and prepared for transport to the Cryonics Institute facility.
