Microparticles Allow you to Live Without Breathing for 15 to 30 Minutes

breathingAlthough it may seem like science fiction, a Boston research group has developed a type of microparticles which can be injected directly into the bloodstream to oxygenate your body quickly … even if we could not breathe. An extraordinary advancement in medicine that could help to save millions of lives in a year.

According to the doctors, this development would allow medical teams to keep patients alive 15 to 30 minutes even though they may have severe respiratory failure. A time for  medical teams in which they could act without risk for a heart attack or permanent brain injury.

The first tests in animals are completed with a success. They say that doctors are able to inject this liquid into a vein restoring blood oxygen levels , giving the animals who needed those extra minutes .

And from what these particles are composed? Apparently consisting of oxygen gas in a layer bagging lipid , a natural molecule or stores energy which normally serves as a component of cell membranes. Lipids can contain types of vitamins, monoglycerides, diglycerides, triglycerides, phospholipids,  fat.

Particles of oxygen acids of two to four microns in size. In a liquid, can be easily transported and used in emergency medical equipment and intensive care staff. A “potion” that would have three or four times the oxygen content of our own red blood cells.

According to John Kheir, principal investigator who solved the problem using deformable particles:

We have engineered around this problem by packaging the gas into small, deformable particles. They dramatically increase the surface area for gas exchange and are able to squeeze through capillaries where free gas would get stuck.Some of the most convincing experiments were the early ones. We drew each other’s blood, mixed it in a test tube with the microparticles, and watched blue blood turn immediately red, right before our eyes.

They had discovered the first step towards the elixir of life in a bottle (for a couple of minutes).An incredible progress that is ongoing now in evidence until they can be tested in humans. A liquid that could extend life for a few minutes paramount in many operations or medical emergencies.

    Where are your sources? Did you get this news from someone else, if so who? Did you get it from reading a journal, if so which one? You have a quote, who said it and how did you get it? Who are the “Boston research group?” If you aren’t going to put up where you get your information, then it’s just sensational bullshit and not worth reading….

    I’d be much more inclined to take this seriously if the article wasn’t full of grammar errors.

    • donovan

      “grammatical error’s” is what you where looking for i believe

      • Pointlessness

        While “grammar errors” is accepted by some, and is increasing in its acceptability, “grammatical errors” is the standard. A person makes grammatical errors, or errors in their grammar. Similarly people don’t make language mistakes,they make linguistic mistakes, or mistakes in their language. Though to “donovan” if you’re going to play grammar police, do it right. It would be “were” not “where” and capitalize your I, overall the OP has much better usage of grammar than you do, the person trying to correct him.

    I think this is fake, blood isn’t even blue…

    There is a source posted. There’s a link at the bottom to a more complete article on sciencedaily.com, which in turn has a link to the abstract of the research in the journal “Science Translational Medicine”. The “Boston research group” is at the Boston Children’s Hospital.

    No, it’s being developed for the special operations troops, primarily the Navy SEALs so that they can conduct operations without cumbersome scuba tanks as well as for their titanium fanged working dogs to accompany them to the area of operations (AOA), under water, undetected and lethal.

    The source for this article is the awesome research scientists who designed this fantastic stuff for the Department of Defense. Their identities are classified for security reasons.Boston Research Group is their code name.

    Now that I have met the needs of your inquiry you can go back to debating G
    grammar errors vs grammatical errors of which I’ve made none. Thank You, Infidel Prime

    Blood is red, not blue (remember that needle you’ve seen blood drawn with?). Interesting that cutting-edge researchers would be unaware of this, especially if they actually removed said blood to be infused with these particles. Perhaps they are aliens with multi-chromatic blood cells?

    Deoxegenated blood is Blue, all you idiots should research before posting. See link below, for those idoits, you click on it with your mouse. Not a real mouse, the computer mouse. http://www.biology-online.org/biology-forum/about89.html

  8. This may sound like something out of a science fiction movie but this brave new world, we have expect the unexpected! kudos to the team at Boston children’s hospital that invent the microparticles!

  9. great publish, i surely enjoy this web site, keep on it.

  10. I don’t thing there are grammatical errors, but the thing is so bloody bioscience to breath without molecules!

    • rafferty

      Blood is blue, oxijinated or not. That’s just how it is. This is science not an argument. God made it that way 2000 years ago when he killed Jesus, and that’s that.
      MOVE ON!

    For crying out loud…red…blue…red…blue… no one is saying that your blood is actually blue, it just looks that way. When red blood cells are rich in Oxygen they are a bright red, when they are deprived of oxygen they are a very dull red. The arteries, that carry this dull red blood, look blue through the skin. This is proven by anyone who has taken a blood test, the blood drawn in the vial is a very dull red compare to the blood when you cut your face shaving. Now lets move on…….

    • Agreed, I think this debate is over. Blood is blue, oxijinated or not. That’s just how it is. This is science not an argument. God made it that way 2000 years ago when he killed Jesus, and that’s that.
      MOVE ON!
