Just in time for Halloween – researchers fill dog with zombie juice then bring the dead dog back to life

Zombie dog from Resident Evil video gameScientists at the University of Pittsburgh’s Safar Center for Resuscitation Research have made good their name. Researchers took 24 dogs and stopped their hearts and waited until there was no brain activity. They then drained the dogs’ blood and replaced it with a chilled saline solution (zombie juice) which brought the dogs’ body temperature down to a chilly 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The low temperature put the dogs’ bodies into a state of suspended animation, slowing down cell damage. Then with one foot outside the door, they restarted the dogs’ hearts. Two thirds of the dogs were successfully revived and suffered no ill effects.

The purpose of the research is to find ways to put people into a state of suspended animation while they are transported to medical facilities (ideal for battlefield injuries).
