The Cryonics Institutes 216th Patient
Cryonics Institute Case Report for Patient Number 216
CI patient #216 was an 84 year old male from Nevada. The patient was a CI member at the time of his death. The patient was taken to the hospital on October 1, 2021.
The patient died shortly after being admitted to the hospital. Because of problems with the airlines, the patient was not able to be transported to CI until October 6th. The patient was kept at a funeral home in Nevada during that time. Once the details for transit were in place, 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 October 6, 2021 around 2pm. The patient was held in dry ice for two additional days to insure he was at dry ice temperature.
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.
