At-196 degrees Celsius, two bodies waiting to be brought back to life
So far, no institution can promise recovery. In Jia Chunsheng's view, human recovery is the ultimate goal in the whole field of cryopreservation, and if this goal is too illusory to work hard, then there may never be a breakthrough in this field. On the afternoon of June 19, 2018, 62 hours after the death of Liu Aihui, who had suffered from lung cancer for many years, blood replacement, cryoprotectant perfusion and programmed cooling were completed and placed in a special stainless steel protection tank and transferred to a liquid nitrogen tank at -196 ℃.
The first case of human cryopreservation in China was completed in Jinan, Shandong Province.
Jinan, June 29 (Reporter Wang Zhi) Shandong Yinfeng Life Science Research Institute recently announced that China's first remote transfer of human cryopreservation surgery was recently completed in Shandong. For the first time, ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) technology was used to transfer human body donation volunteers from Shandong Tai'an Central Hospital to Shandong Yinfeng Life Science Research Institute, which is about 100km away, and the operation of human cryopreservation was successfully completed.
The second open volunteer of human cryopreservation in China is a 72-year-old man with cancer.
Zhejiang online, June 26 (Zhejiang online reporter Chen Weibin) Zhou Ming wrote a letter to his mother Liu Aihui to the future. He hopes that one day in the future, his mother will be able to read this letter after being reborn. Although the cryopreservation technology of the human body is still questioned by the outside world, it is a hope for the family of Liu Aihui, a 72-year-old resident of Tai'an, Shandong Province, which has long gone beyond the medical level of body donation.
The wife died of cancer and the husband cried and sent her to cryonics.
In the early morning of June 25, another case of human cryopreservation was successfully completed at the Shandong Yinfeng Institute of Life Sciences (hereinafter referred to as "Yinfeng Research Institute"). On June 19, two days after Liu Aihui died, through the glass window, her family quietly watched the old man transferred to a liquid nitrogen tank at-196 ℃ by researchers. As a result, Liu Aihui became the second publicly reported human cryopreservation volunteer in China, and it was also the first successful case of remote volunteer transfer and human cryopreservation in China.
The first cryopreservation operation of transporting human body in different places in China was completed in Jinan, freezing the elderly in their seventies.
Shandong Yinfeng Institute of Life Sciences disclosed on June 24 that the hospital carried out the first long-distance transfer in China, and the cryopreservation operation of the human body was completed in Jinan. This is the most complete, comprehensive and challenging typical case in the hospital's life continuation research program.
"China's first human cryopreservation" for one year, consuming about 40 litres of liquid nitrogen per day.
Jinan, 14 May (Xinhua) Shandong Yinfeng Institute of Life Sciences announced on the 13th that the liquid ammonia tank of the first cryopreserved human body in China is in good condition, consuming an average of about 40 litres of liquid nitrogen per day. "the first cryopreservation of human body in China" has aroused widespread concern among experts and scholars in medicine, biology, law, ethics and other fields, as well as the public. What is the significance of "life extension"?
