Injectable oxygen particle that allows person to live without breathing

  1. 13 Researchers have developed fast-dissolving particles that may one day prevent organ damage or death by instantly infusing oxygen into the blood.[FONT=lucida grande]

    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 ScienceNOW. "You can apply this across healthcare, from the battlefield to the emergency room, intensive care unit, or operating room."

    I wonder if this will facilitate a new way to blood dope in sports. Just a side thought.

    And here I am thinking "so THIS is how staff can get around suffering the odor when entering the isolation patient with rampant C-diff's room..."!!

    Between that and a good GI bleed, I'd say "shoot me up"
