Apparently, scientists at Boston Children’s Hospital have created a liquid that can supply oxygen to a trauma patient via injection for 15 to 30 minutes. This may not sound like a big deal, but if you aren’t able to breathe, you aren’t getting any oxygen. After something like six minutes without oxygen, bad things happen, so tacking another 15 minutes or half an hour could easily make the difference between life and death in many cases. Of course, I am neither a scientist or a doctor, so I may be wrong about this, but even so, its better than reading about the climate.
