another piece for Nautilus, about cooling down the body in extreme cases of cardiac arrest. This process slows down the metabolism and decelerates brain death in patients who no longer have a pulse, giving doctors more time. Once everything is repaired the body is gradually brought back to normal temperatures. It’s like something out of a science fiction novel.
