Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.
When blood can’t flow to one’s heart or brain, those organs take little time to suffer damage. Anecdotes of “freezing” injured people to help them get better have been told since ancient Greece. Contemporary medicine has only recently found good enough technology, understanding of cellular biology, and a niche in the probabilities of outcomes to use such a paradoxical technique in practice. Some advanced physicians now lower patients’ internal temperature in extreme circumstances, to slow or stop damage, and buy time to treat injuries.
