Tired of having to go through the labor of breathing to meet your body’s gluttonous need for oxygen?
Then you sir, or madam, are irreparably lazy!
On the other hand, scientists have invented particles that will allow you to live without breathing. Oxygenating the blood through a direct injection
will allow medical teams to keep patients alive and well for 15 to 30 minutes despite major respiratory failure. This is enough time for doctors and emergency personnel to act without risking a heart attack or permanent brain injuries in the patient.”
The article also states that
the solution has already been successfully tested on animals under critical lung failure. When the doctors injected this liquid into the patient’s veins, it restored oxygen in their blood to near-normal levels, granting them those precious additional minutes of life.”
This is not a theory or alpha stage experimentation, this is the real deal!
After reading this article my mind can’t help heading into the world of sci fi and using this breakthrough for recreational or exploratory purposes. It reminds me of Kurt Vonnegut’s The Sirens of Titan, where former citizens of Earth are trained on Mars to practice oxygenating their body through the use of a time released oxygen pill. The trick is remembering to not breathe!
