okay… so i just posted about experiments done in the 1940s to revive clinically dead dogs, and now i have another post about basically the same thing.
according to this australian news site, scientists are still working on reanimating the corpses of dogs. they seem to be doing a better job of it this time, though.
here’s an exerpt:
Pittsburgh’s Safar Centre for Resuscitation Research has developed a technique in which subject’s veins are drained of blood and filled with an ice-cold salt solution.
The animals are considered scientifically dead, as they stop breathing and have no heartbeat or brain activity.
But three hours later, their blood is replaced and the zombie dogs are brought back to life with an electric shock.
Plans to test the technique on humans should be realised within a year, according to the Safar Centre.
this article is from 2005, and i haven’t heard about this being used on humans yet. so… what happened?! maybe i’m just not paying enough attention to the experimental medicine scene. if anybody has info on what happened to this technique, please let me know.
and if you know whether or not this is the reason why jason was revived after being struck by lightning in the 6th friday the 13th movie, please confirm/deny.
