Researchers have developed fast-dissolving particles that may one day prevent organ damage or death by instantly infusing oxygen into the blood.
Last year, a team of researchers in Boston developed a way to inject oxygen directly into patients with an obstructed airway. This allows doctors time to manage the problem of the blocked trachea while minimizing the risk of cardiac arrest or brain injury. The trials are still ongoing for this amazing technique.
"This is a potential breakthrough," Peter Laussen, cardiac intensive care doctor at Children's Hospital Boston who was not involved in the work, told Science
NOW. "You can apply this across healthcare, from the battlefield to the emergency room, intensive care unit, or operating room."
