Human cryogenics: what é, how it works and áglasses

Cryogenics in humans, scientifically known as chronic, is a technique that allows the body to be cooled down to a temperature of -196ºC, stopping the deterioration and aging process. Thus, it is possible to keep the body in the same conditions for several years, so that, in the future, it will be reanimated.

Cryonics has been used especially in terminally ill patients with serious illnesses such as cancer, in the hope that they will be revived when a cure for their disease is discovered, for example. However, this technique can be done by anyone, after death.

Cryogenics for humans still cannot be done in Brazil, however there are already companies in the United States that are practicing the process for people from all countries.

How cryonics works

Although it is popularly referred to as a freezing process, cryonics is actually a vitrification process in which bodily fluids are kept in a neither solid nor liquid, glass-like state.

To achieve this status, you need to follow a step-by-step that includes:

  1. Supplementation with antioxidants and vitamins during the terminal phase of the disease, to reduce damage to vital organs;
  2. Cool the body, after clinical death has been declared, with ice and other cold substances. This process must be done by a specialized team and as soon as possible, to keep the tissues he althy, especially the brain;
  3. Injecting blood thinners into the body to prevent blood from freezing;
  4. Transport the body to the cryogenics lab where it will be stored.During transport, the team performs chest compressions or uses a special machine to replace the heartbeat and keep the blood circulating, allowing oxygen to be taken throughout the body;
  5. Remove all blood in the laboratory, which will be replaced by an antifreeze substance prepared especially for the process. This substance prevents tissues from freezing and being injured, as would happen if it were blood;
  6. Store the body in an airtight container, where the temperature will be slowly reduced until it reaches -196ºC.

In order to obtain the best results, a member of the laboratory team must be present during the final phase of life, to start the process soon after death.

On the other hand, people who do not have a serious illness, but who want to undergo cryonics, should use a bracelet with information to call someone from the laboratory team as soon as possible, ideally within the first 15 minutes.

What stops the process

The biggest obstacle in cryonics is the process of reanimating the body, since it is currently not possible to revive a person, having only been able to revive animal organs. However, it is hoped that with the advancement of science and medicine it will be possible to revive the whole body.

Cryogenics in humans is currently only performed in the United States, as it is where the only two companies in the world with the capacity to preserve bodies are located. The total value of cryogenics varies according to the person's age and he alth status, however, the average value is 200 thousand dollars.

There is even a cheaper cryonics process, in which only the head is preserved to keep the brain he althy and ready to be placed in another body, as a clone in the future, for example. This process is cheaper, being close to 80 thousand dollars.
