Yale University scientists were able revive a dead pig. They were able to restore blood circulation and function of the internal organs with the aid of new technology.
This technology will allow for the safe transfer of organs from deceased patients to be saved. The same technology will allow doctors to revive patients and restore organ function after cardiac arrest due to blood clots or severe internal bleeding.
Scientists artificially caused cardiac arrest in the pigs while they were anesthetized. The body was then connected to a machine that took over the functions of the heart, lungs and other vital organs. OrganEx, an experimental liquid, was slowly injected into the animal, allowing it to preserve tissue integrity, stop cell death, and restore key organ function.
This is a truly important research. This research shows that cells in mammals’ organs (including human ones) don’t die for long after death. According to science, death can be reversed and treated within a matter of hours.

Scientists discovered that certain functions in the cells of the liver, heart and kidneys could be restored within six hours of the experiment.
