Zombie Dogs!

Quote:
SCIENTISTS have created eerie zombie dogs, reanimating the canines after several hours of clinical death in attempts to develop suspended animation for humans.
US scientists have succeeded in reviving the dogs after three hours of clinical death, paving the way for trials on humans within years.

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.

However rather than sending people to sleep for years, then bringing them back to life to benefit from medical advances, the boffins would be happy to keep people in this state for just a few hours,

But even this should be enough to save lives such as battlefield casualties and victims of stabbings or gunshot wounds, who have suffered huge blood loss.

During the procedure blood is replaced with saline solution at a few degrees above zero. The dogs' body temperature drops to only 7C, compared with the usual 37C, inducing a state of hypothermia before death.

Although the animals are clinically dead, their tissues and organs are perfectly preserved.

Damaged blood vessels and tissues can then be repaired via surgery. The dogs are brought back to life by returning the blood to their bodies,giving them 100 per cent oxygen and applying electric shocks to restart their hearts.

Tests show they are perfectly normal, with no brain damage.

"The results are stunning. I think in 10 years we will be able to prevent death in a certain segment of those using this technology," said one US battlefield doctor.

Awesome, bring on the zombie's. Although I would do a lot of testing before embarking on humans, I mean brain damage is not very fun, also could this pave the way to long term suspended animation? I would not mind being drained of my blood if it would enable travel to the stars.

Looks like all those cryonics companies will probably jump on this...

...while all those who bothered to get frozen with liquid nitrogen are probably fucked.

Disgusting and a prime example of animal abuse by the scientific community!!!!!!

The question is why do have to ask why?

Were the animals mistreated during the trials? was there improper oversight?

I have not worked in an animal testing facility but surely there are proper procedures and practices in such experiments to minimise harm and suffering of the creatures.

I don't think that there is anything wrong with experimenting these types of technologies on animals, I certainly don't believe in making animals suffer needlessly but if this shows promise it should be explored.

Would you want someone draining your blood and bringing you back to life? The whole concept is disgusting to me. The procedure is in itself a mistreatment of animals. Maybe these SICKO scientist need to experiment on themselves and see how it feels.

If I was shot and bleeding to death in the not too distant future then yes I would like to have my blood removed, have my body pumped full of saline solution and have my body temp put down to 7 degrees and then reanimated after adequate surgery was performed to stop the bleeding and not be suffering serious brain injury or physical impairment from the process.

The concept may be disgusting but it could save many lives - if it can be applied safely and the only way to get too that stage is at a point having animal testing. The scientists are probably not "sickos", animal testing is an important step in testing.

I dont agree with you. It is my belief animals should not be used in testing for any reason. Again, if these Frankenstien scientists are so interested in that kind of crap, they need to do the testing on themselves.

Your call them "Frankenstein scientists" interested in "that kind of crap", well that kind of crap is the business of saving lives, human lives, there will come a time when this is trialed on human beings, but that only comes when it has reached a level of confidence and safety and gets approval which can only be achieved by a regime of animal testing along the way.

Would you honestly abandon all treatments that required animal testing along the way out of a moral opposition? Is it virtuous to oppose testing on animals if it prevents the discovery and/or application of treatments that can save human lives?

YES!! I believe animals should have the same rights and protection under law as humans. I do not believe in ANY type of animal testing.
