If you have no heartbeat, no brain activity and are 10C, you are dead aren’t you? Not according to Dr Rhee of the university of Arizona. With a radical technique he has brought animals back to life. He drains all the blood, fixes the injury then cools it to more than 20c bellow the normal temperature. The blood is then pumped back through the veins and the body is warmed up. According to Rhee there is an immediate effect, the skin appears pink and at 30C, the heart starts beating again.http://www. bbc.com/future/story/20140704-i-bring-the-dead-back-to-life
