Thursday, 11 August 2022 by System Administrator

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 230

 

CI patient #230 was an 82 year old female from Germany. The patient was a CI member at the time of her death.  

 

The patient died on July 22, 2022.  The patient was perfused in Germany by members of Cryonics Germany, and placed in dry ice.  The patient was maintained in dry ice while transit permits were obtained and a flight was booked.  The patient arrived at Detroit Metro Airport on August 9th, 2022 at 1pm.  The patient was transported to the CI facility and prepared for cooling.

 

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

The Cryonics Institutes 229th Patient

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 229

 

CI patient #229 was a 86 year old male from New York. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death.  

 

The patient died in a hospital at approximately 5am on August 2nd, 2022. The patient donated his organs for research, against CI’s recommendation, and CI had to wait for the organ removal to be completed.  A local funeral director packed the patient in ice once the organ removal was complete and arranged to have him flown to Michigan.

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility on August 2nd at 10pm.  The nasal temperature upon arrival was 9c.  The perfusion was started at 10:26pm, and terminated at 11pm.  Only the head was perfused.  2.5 liters of 30% EG were used and 8 liters of 70% VM1 were used.  The perfusion was stopped early due to edema in the patient’s head and lack of flow.  Because of the way the organ harvest was conducted, it was not possible to get readings of the effluents exiting the body during perfusion.

 

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

The Cryonics Institutes 228th Patient

Wednesday, 10 August 2022 by System Administrator

Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 228

 

CI patient #228 was a 69 year old male from Washington. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death.  

 

The patient died at home under hospice care at approximately 3:50am on August 1st, 2022. The patient’s wife initiated cooling with ice.  The local funeral director picked up the patient and brought him back to their funeral home where more ice was added to cool the patient.   The funeral director then obtained the permits necessary to have the patient flown to CI.

 

The patient arrived at the CI facility on August 2nd at 10:30am.  The nasal temperature upon arrival was 7.1c,  The perfusion was started at 10:55am.  Full body perfusion was attempted, but quickly turned to neuro perfusion due to lack of flow to the body.  The perfusion was completed at 12:20pm.  During the perfusion there were 3 liters of 30% Eg solution used, and 14 liters of 70% VM1 solution used.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the right jugular vein was 1.4162.  The final refractive index of the effluents exiting the left jugular vein was 1.4202. The average perfusion pressure was held at 118mm and metal cannulas were used.  Flow rate started at .4 liters per minute and was reduced to 0.27 liters per minute by the end of the perfusion. The nasal temperature was 1c at the end of the perfusion.

 

The perfusion was stopped due to edema in the patient’s head.

 

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