The world of science is truly remarkable as scientists at Boston Children’s Hospital have founded a micro-particle that can be injected into your bloodstream to oxygenate your blood – without any help being required from your lungs. Each particle contains three to four times more oxygen than each of our own red blood cells and can be stored in each cell’s cell membrane. The particles will be able to keep the human who is injected with micro-particles alive for thirty minutes without breathing. This landmark invention is planned to be used for hospital patients that go into cardiac arrest or for military underwater exploration.
