    Zombies?

    Boffins create zombie dogs
    By Nick Buchan of NEWS.com.au
    June 27, 2005
    From:

    Eerie ... boffins have brought dead dogs back to life, in the name of science. 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 a this should be enough to save lives such as battlefield casualties and victims of stabbings or gunshot wounds, who have suffered huge blood loss.

    Advertisement:
    Duing 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.

    Creepy.

    *thinks about the resident evil film, which was almost good at times, remembers undead dogs with flesh peeling off them*
    Sounds like fun to me!

    It'd seem a pretty rare instance if it got to work on humans...it'd most likely be like long term storage...interested for space travel idea's...


    Brings up alot of questions about religion as well (yea, yea I said it) in the sense that if you "died" and were revived a week later...What would you have learned? Is there a spiritual higher being or were you just taking a really hardcore nap? Intruiging...


    but Zombiedogs take the cake.

    I wonder how they are going to test this on humans? I mean if they wait for a guy to basically get almost dead....they are gonna make sure he dies by doing this 1st. So if you got a chance to live, in normal medial fields..these guys are like "oh no, no, np..you die 1st, then we bring you back".....but interesting none the less.
    Religion and science are gonna have a "big bang theory" once all this goes down.....as usual.

    Zombies are cool. freet has been a member of the undead for 8 months now, and he can still type whilst chewing the hand off his latest victim.
    And CH brings up a point, how do you test it on humans? Do you ask politely if some guy whos dying wouldnt mind being brought back as a zombie? Or just go out with a bseball bat at night, find your test subject, and do the deeds yourself?
