In the same series, the defibrillator induces a sudden, violent jerk or convulsion by the patient; in reality, although the muscles may contract,
such dramatic patient presentation is rare. Most television shows will have the medical provider defibrillate the "flat-line" ECG rhythm (also known
as asystole); this is not done in real life. Only the cardiac arrest rhythms ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia are
normally defibrillated. (There are also several heart rhythms that can be "shocked" when the patient is not in cardiac arrest, such as
supraventricular tachycardia or ventricular tachycardia that produces a pulse; this procedure is known as cardioversion, not defibrillation.)
Being potentially deadly, it derives its name from Atropos, one of the three Fates who, according to Greek mythology, chose how a person was to
Plus it fits with "The Rock" theme because Nicolas Cage, in said movie, injects himself with Atropine in the heart. However Cage used it to
counteract a nerve agent. Atropine is very versatile as you can see.
A ship can't go backwards through hyperspace. (At least I've never heard of it and they never mention it being possible.)
Once a ship exists hyperspace they can't really go back through the same area. (I've never seen them ever try and go back and pick something up or
look at anything. It's like losing something in the middle of a wormhole. Whatever is lost is lost.)
The pod might have disintegrated. They had a discussion on Stargate Atlantis once on if it would be possible for a small ship to travel alongside a
big ship in hyperspace. Mckay thought it wouldn't work. Zelenka thought it could. So I've added doubt about whether the escape pod would
disintegrate or not.
I'm hoping everyone, for the moment, will think Studious is dead. That gives me the ability to do a reverse "Studious' wife" where I have to
convince everyone I'm alive.
