Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 211

CI patient #211 was a 50 year old male from Massachusetts. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death. 

The patient died in the hospital at approximately 8:30 pm on August 12, 2021, after a lengthily hospitalization. A local cooperating funeral director retrieved the patient, packed him in ice and returned to their funeral home with the patient. The patient was kept in ice and in refrigeration until the transit permit could be obtained.  A flight was scheduled for the next day and patient was flown to Michigan.

The patient arrived at the CI facility at 6pm on August 13th, about 21 and a half hours after death. Upon the patient’s arrival at the CI facility, he was transferred to the operating table in the perfusion room. The nasal temperature upon his arrival was 5.1c.

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 210

 

CI patient #210 was a 68 year old female from Florida. The patient was not a CI member at the time of her death. 

 

The patient died on July 19th 2021.  The patient was frozen and held at a funeral home in Florida for the required two week period.  The patient was then transferred to the Cryonics Institute on August 2, 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.

The Cryonics Institutes 209th Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 209

 

CI patient #209 was an 80 year old female from New Brunswick, Canada. The patient was a CI member and hospitalized at the time of her death. 

 

The patient died on July 9th, 2021.  Because the patient would not be able to get to CI within 48 hours for a perfusion, the patient was frozen without cryoprotective solutions. The patient was placed in dry ice after she died, and was held in dry ice until she could be transported to our facility.  Once the details for transit were in place, the patient was transported to the CI facility and arrived at noon on July 15th, 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.

The Cryonics Institutes 208th Patient

Thursday, 5 August 2021 by System Administrator

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 208

 

CI patient #208 was a 48 year old male from Maryland. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death, with a funded contract in force. 

 

The patient died from a heart attack on July 3rd, 2021.  CI was not informed of the patient’s death in time to attempt a perfusion.  Because of that fact, the patient was frozen without cryoprotective solutions.

The Cryonics Institutes 207th Patient

Thursday, 5 August 2021 by System Administrator

 

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 207

 

CI patient #207 was a 72 year old male from Michigan. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death. 

 

The patient died in a nursing facility under hospice care at 8:31am on May 20th, 2021. The nurses at the facility packed bags of ice around the patients head and neck.  The patient was then transported to the CI facility, while being cooled with ice packs.

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility at 11:10am.  Upon the patient’s arrival at the CI facility, he was transferred to the operating table in the perfusion room and was immediately covered with more ice. The nasal temperature upon his arrival was 20.9c.

 

Kristen Orme and Sara Walsh performed the perfusion.  The perfusion was completed at 1:10pm.  During the perfusion there were 5 liters of 10% Eg solution and 5 liters of 30% Eg solution used, and 32 liters of 70% VM1 solution used.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4213.  Sampling from the left jugular was not possible due to large amounts of cancerous tumors on the left side of the patient’s neck and shoulder. The average perfusion pressure was held at 118mm and metal cannulas were used.  Flow rate started at 2.9 liters per minute and was reduced to 1.1 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion. The nasal temperature was -5.4c at the end of the perfusion.

 

There were no blood clots noted during the perfusion. Significant dehydration of the head and face was noted. There was slight distention of the abdomen, so the perfusion to the body was stopped at 12:50 pm. The perfusion to both the head and body was successful. 

 

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 days and 11 hours.  The patient was then placed in a cryostat for long-term cryonic storage.
