Scientist have invented particles that will let you live without breathing. Although it is still in its infancy stages, researchers at Boston Childrenís Hospital have created microparticles that can be injected into your bloodsteam and oxygenate it. Even if you stop breathingÖ but it can only keep you alive for 15 to 30 minutes.
Needless to say, itís one of the best medical breakthroughs in recent years, and one that could save millions of lives every year.
The solution has already been successfully tested on animals under critical lung failure. When the doctors injected this liquid into the patientís veins, it restored oxygen in their blood to near-normal levels, granting them those precious additional minutes of life.
