Case Reports from August 2017

The Cryonics Institute 155th Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 155


CI patient #155 was a 59 year old male from Illinois.  The patient was a CI and ACS member at the time of his death.


The patient died at home during the evening of June 22, 2017. Due to the circumstances surrounding the patient’s death, he was taken to the county morgue. After their requirements were met, the morgue released him to the contracted funeral home. The decision was made to then place the patient in dry ice because of the circumstances of the death and the time needed to get the necessary paperwork for his release and the transportation to our facility. 


The patient arrived at the CI facility, in dry ice, at around 1 pm on the 28th of June, approximately 6 days after death.  A perfusion was not possible at this point.  (circumstances relating to the patients death resulted in significant transport delays that where out of CI's control)


The patient was then transferred to the computer controlled cooling chamber to cool to liquid nitrogen temperature.  The human cooling program from dry ice was selected and the time needed to cool the patient to liquid nitrogen temperature was approximately 24 hours. The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.
