Default Injectable Oxygen Particle

Injectable Oxygen Particle That Enables Life Without Breathing

An innovative team of scientists at the Boston Childrenís Hospital have invented what is considered to be one the greatest medical breakthroughs in recent years.

They have created a microparticle that can be injected directly into a personís bloodstream that will quickly oxygenate their blood.

This will even work if the ability to breathe has been restricted or cut off entirely.

This discovery has the potential to save millions of lives every year. The microparticles can keep an subject alive for up to 30 min after respiratory failure.

his is accomplished through an injection into the patientsí veins.

Once injected, the microparticles can oxygenate the blood to near normal levels.

This has countless potential uses as it allows life to continue when oxygen is needed but unavailable.

For medical professionals, this is just enough time to sidestep the risk of a heart attack or permanent brain damage that occurs when oxygen is restricted or cut off to patients brain or heart.

The doctor who first began the study is Dr. John Kheir, who works in the Boston Childrenís Hospital Department of Cardiology.

He found inspiration for the drug in 2006, when he was treating a girl in the ICU who had a severe case of pneumonia.

At the time, the girl didnít have a breathing tube and she suffered from a pulmonary hemorrhage.

This means her lungs had begin to fill up with blood and due to this she went into cardiac arrest.

It took doctors about 25 minutes to remove enough blood from her lungs to allow her to breath.

As a result of the lack of oxygen, the girlís brain was severely damaged and she eventually died.
Microparticle Composition

The microparticles used are composed of oxygen gas pocketed in a layer of lipids.

A Lipid is a natural molecule that can store energy and act as a part of a cell membrane and they can be made of many things such as wax, vitamins, phospholipids, and in this case fat is the lipid that stores the oxygen.

These microparticles are approximately two to four micrometers in length and carry roughly three to four times the oxygen content of our own red blood cells.

In the past researchers had a difficult time succeeding as prior tests caused gas embolism.

This meant that the gas molecules would become stuck trying to squeeze through the capillaries.

They corrected this issue by packaging them into small deformable particles rather ones where the structure was rigid.
Potential Future Uses

Medical:
The distinct medical uses where the microparticles can be used to save off death from a restriction in breathing due to inflammation of the lungs, collapsed lungs, and the like.

It would be good to have these injections ready in hospitals and ambulances for when the time is needed.

Military:
Can you imagine a navy seals capability when they wouldnít need to surface for air and could stay underwater for over 20 minutes?

If a boat was to begin to sink, you could shoot yourself as the boat is going down to ensure you arenít drowned in the under current of the sinking vessel.

How about for toxic gases when a face mask is unavailable.

The military could have a number of uses for such a medical advancement.

Private Sector:
This can be utilized as a precaution for anything nautical where the potential to drown is a real danger.

Deep sea rescue crews could inject themselves prior to making a rescue, underwater welders can use it in case they become stuck or air is lost to their suits.

The potential use for anything water related seems extremely worthwhile.
