Particle that allows living without breathing

TFP: Patients unable to breathe because of acute lung failure or an obstructed airway need another way to get oxygen to their blood—and fast—to avoid cardiac arrest and brain injury.

No but I would expect a survival kit for the extreme farting apocalypse.

Hopefully they can expand the lifespan of those particles and make it portable...carry a few cans around with you just in case the Umbrella corporation poisons the atmosphere.

Now we can finally live on the Moon.

Now we can explore mars.


I don't think you guys up above read it properly, it only lasts for 15 minutes. So unless you plan on exploring other planets for only a couple of minutes it's useless. It will only be used in hospitals as a short-term oxygen substitute.

But... this is only the beginning... who knows what types of applications this can be used for... For example, imagine having it available for miners if there is a collapse... or on subs in the event that the air system is compromised... or on the ISS or in space capsules... or, even, yes, on the Moon or Mars for permanent settlements... who knows where they can go with this.

But do the effects stack? :o
Injecting yourself 4 times would stack up to 60 minutes!! That's an hour!!! Imagine all the "hold your breath the longest" matches you could win >_<
