A few comments re. Mike Darwin's remarks: yes, recovery of PEOPLE after 15
minutes does have an anecdotal character to it. I said myself that it 
required the presence of experts in revival, and such experts are still thin
on the ground ... just to start. I will look through both my own databases and
others; I was actually close to quoting a paper whose citation I don't have
at hand.

I have no other problem with what Mike says, and perhaps even there it is a
matter of emphasis only. Working up from cats and dogs has proven much more
difficult than people hoped when Hossmann and Sato first announced their
results. Some of this probably comes from species differences, but another
big slab (I believe) comes from the simple fact that clinical cases just don't
happen in the controlled way that a lab experiment does. 

			Best and long long life,
