after 10 minutes even it it could be brought back to life, the dogs retatred as hell
Well we know people have say drowned or been under cardic arrest for that long and have come back, the technique they used although crude pumped oxygenated blood straight into the head or body, the bit i didnt get, was how the heart started pumping on its own accord, i would of thought it needed an electrical charge to get it started.

That's pretty strange. I wasn't able to watch the whole thing but got glimpses of the video. My question, I wonder if this can someday be used for prostetics? I mean, like in Star Wars when Luke lost his hand and they attached a droid hand to him and he could use it like his normal hand. Just wondering out load really.
1) The heart is not regulated by blood or its supply, it is regulated by electrical currents to regulate and stimulate contractions of the muscles within which then stimulates blood flow. The heart cannot survive on blood alone.
Heres where the video really falls down. The head that responded to stimuli. Let me explain. To do this, there would have to have been an internal electrical input of some description to stimulate nerve endings and nerve cells within the dogs head. Electricity is needed to cause all of the observed effects of response from the dog
I think actually what this is may be a demonstration of a very early and crude version of the heart bypass machine in common use today with a very rudimentary explanation of what was happening. The real part of this video I feel was the dog being cut and swapped to the machine -BUT i do not believe the time limit was 10 minutes. No way.
this is considered science fiction. i do belive that they could do that to a dog. but a humans body is much more complex.
