Humans in Suspension - Photo credit www.sozcu.com.tr

This is a list of all people who have been cryopreserved. It is significantly based off research from Transhumani and contributions since. Citations need improving in a number of areas.

Patient Types

Whole Body

The entire body is perfused (with a focus on the brain) and then stored.

Neuro

The arteries and veins of the neck are clamped and the tissue is removed using scalpels. An osteotome driven by a mallet is used to sever the spine.

Biography: The patient was a Caucasian, 65-year-old male, married to Katherine Mills, who was cryopreserved in #1978.
Lethal cerebrovascular accident. The patient deanimated far from a cryonics facility. Perfusion was begun 24 hours after legal death was declared. Equipment failure and severe edema made perfusion difficult. Perfusion was performed through the left common carotid artery. Perfusion was open circuit and drainage was done through both the left and right internal jugular veins. The initial perfusate was blood washout with 32 liters of bicarbonate-buffered Ringer's solution. Cryoprotective perfusion was done with 32 liters of glycerophosphate-based perfusate with 15% DMSO (v/v). A Porta-Boy embalming pump was used to deliver the perfusate. The patient had been stored in Liquid Nitrogen by Trans_Time for 5 years. Cryonicist Dick Clair donated 20,000 dollars for the patient to be transferred to Alcor as a Neuropatient. Conversion to neuropreservation was done by means of a high-speed electric chainsaw.

A Google Newspaper article from 1982 identifies him as Ray Mills from Cumberland, Maryland. There is a record of a Ray Mills who died eight days prior to the patient's cryopreservation.

The cryopreservation was done by Trans_Time and the patient was transferred to Alcor November 13, 1982.

Biography: The patient was a long-time cryonics activist and had been an ACS Governor since 1990. She took up flying at the age of 49, and also wrote poetry inspired by that of Jerry White. She cared for White during his standby and was his medical power of attorney. She had been working for Sterling Software, a contractor to NASA Ames, since 1988; as a Project Manager for the Graphics Development Project. Her boss described her job as "riding herd on an extremely talented group of individuals." She wrote the 'Stereographics' chapter of the book From Object Modelling to Advanced Visual Communication, the proceedings of the Eurographics '91 conference in Vienna. She also coauthored On the Theory and Application of Stereographics in Scientific Visualization, presented at the same conference.

The patient had been undergoing treatment for chronic depression for several years. Mike Darwin believed that the emotional stress of the #Standby and cryopreservation of her friend Jerry White led to her suicide. She had switched medications and had been unable to sleep for at least three days before her suicide.

Suicide (Gunshot to the chest). Some hours passed before the patient's head was packed in ice. At 9:30 AM the autopsy was carried out. The Medical Examiner was cooperative, leaving the head out of the procedure and carrying out the autopsy before all others. The response team consisted of Sandra Russell, Naomi Reynolds, Edgar Swank, and Jim Yount. The patient was cooled between January 17 and February 15, at a rate not exceeding 0.6 degrees Celsius per hour. The patient was transferred to the Cryonics Institute in 2004.

Biography: The patient had served as the president of the Cryonics Association of Australia for over a decade, before resigning due to health concerns. He had helped in the cryopreservation of Roy Schiavello, Australia's first cryonics patient. At the time of his cryopreservation, he was a 71-year-old retired teacher and father of five children: three sons and two daughters
Prostate cancer (Metastasized to bones and abdomen). The patient was pronounced immediately after clinical death by his physician. His two sons and a CAA member (Joe Allan) placed him in a bag containing ice and covered him in a blanket for insulation. He was given 25,000 IU of Heparin and Clexane before being placed in a CAA-built shipping container packed with dry ice and shipped to the United States. Arrival took five days. When the container was opened it was found that the patient had frozen. Vitrification was attempted, and perfusion lasted an hour before resistance to flow due to ice damage became evident, and the patient was cooled as fast as possible to the glass transition point.

Biography: The patient was a pioneer of cryonics. In the sixties he founded the #Cryonics Society of New York. He was the the mentor of Mike Darwin.
Liver failure. One hour twenty minutes of warm ischemia, twelve hours of cold ischemia. Template:CI director Ben Best thought adding polyethylene glycol to the cryoprotectant solution would inhibit the edema, after being told by his own researchers that PEG is incompatible with solutions containing DMSO. This mixture formed a thick gel; which was nevertheless injected into the patient. This clogged the filter; resulting in failure to vitrify the brain and massive injury from ice formation.
