Scientists study suspended animation for wounded soldiers

Fox News:

"Is hibernation the solution not just to interstellar travel but to battlefield trauma?

New research aims to study the use of hibernation to stabilize soldiers for transport to medical facilities. And black bears are the guinea pigs -- human-sized hibernators to help scientists better understand hibernation’s fundamental molecular and biological functions."

The story is too old to be commented.

Reminds me of how now hospitals are lowering patients body temperature to help stabalize and stop bleeding, etc. So suspending someone is somewhat similar in a way and could prove to work in the end if they can find a way to do it properly.
