One topic that is often debated within the scientific world is resuscitation. At this moment in life, resuscitation is likely to be impossible this due to the lack of required technology. In the future however with the advancing of scientific and medical technology could totally make this possible.
Nothing in science seems to be impossible with a bright future ahead. Science is a super vast area of knowledge which can consist on efficient outcomes such as resuscitation.
Resuscitation is a clear difficult topic to discuss about as this last consists on bringing the dead back to life. With this said, many believe for various reasons that was is dead is supposed to stay dead. Science has responded with this, resuscitation could totally be possible in the future.
What doctors can currently do is to try resuscitating someone right after these had a cardiac arrest. This is done by performing either CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) or defribilation. These are emergency procedures performed respectively in specific situations. These methods based on the gravity of the situation can or not work. However if none of these methods don’t work then death is certain and for now nothing can be done but hoping for the future to have the required technology to bring the dead back to life.
As mentioned above, all science can hope for at the moment is based in the future. For now all that can be done consists on experimentations using dead as well as “near-dead” bodies. To carry on these experimentation scientists use cryonics instrumentations which help maintaining a dead body using cool temperatures.
What is Cyronic Preservation?
Cyronic preservation is known to be the one key element that is going to help regarding possible resuscitation in the futre. This instrumentation consists on low-temperature freezing and storage of an individual’s corpse and as this last is done, damage to the individual’s body would be reduced by ensuring that the correct oxygen levels are maintained. This last is only one of the three steps for possible hope within resuscitation in the future. Of course these three steps would occur only after a patient is declared legally dead so that their body can then be frozen.
The second step consist on the body storage to a low enough temperature that would slow chemical processes within the cells and tissues of an individual so that degradation of the body could be prevented.
The third and final step is the following, while damage is inevitably inflicted on the body from the cooling process and any illness or ageing they might have suffered, they hope that future nanotechnology may be able to repair this.
The role of AI and nanotechnology within resuscitation
Futurists suggest the use of artificial intelligence could play an important role in restoring people back to life. The role of AI would consist on the use of algorithms and software so that possible diagnoses as well as treatments are suggested. The algorithms would be essential when nanotechnology also comes at its place regarding restoring some parts of an individual’s body.
Nanotechnology is a type of technology that consists on very small particles. The scale used regarding such technology is indeed the nanoscale which varies between 1 to 100 nanometers.
Artificial intelligence would detect where the nanotechnology is to be placed so that a total restoration of an individual’s body could possibly occur. However all this is yet to be confirmed, in fact all the technology needed are to be created in the near future.
