One of the problems that has delayed me signing up is that by the time of 
cyropreservation, the brain has already been seriously damaged.  We (MD 
intensivests) are exceptionally good at keeping the heart-lung machine 
pumping.  What usually leads to ultimate demise is prolonged hypotension, 
which kills the brain (and kidneys) long before death is admitted to.  There 
should be an avenue for direct escape from this doom to a cyropreserved 
state, before the irreversible damage is acquired.  Obviously this will be a 
huge social hurdle to cross.
