That may be why there is a 30 minute limit on it.


This. After that point toxicity becomes a major concern for damage to the body.

I suspect that while this is fully survivable, the period afterward (purging water/contaminants from lungs, co2 from blood, etc) is probably a lot like the worst hangover you've ever had. Affectivity of people in this state would be questionable at best.

I was literally just contemplating this about 2 days ago, and here it is somebody invented it. I'm going to have to start jumping on my good ideas instead of just letting them go, :p

Straigt out of Star Trek, not Abyss. They called it Tri-Ox compound.

TOS: Amok Time, Voyager: Rise.

well, baby in womb 'breath' in almost 'airless condition'.

so, is the liquid breathing part of LCL in evangelion universe actually theoreticaly possible?

So there is some truth to Abyss
hmmmmmmmm
In theory I guess if the body can breathe liquid, then I suppose the biggest fear would be psycological, holding your breath that long without entering panic.......


I guess it's like diving. It's "hard" the first time but you get accustomed to it very quickly.

And they use a simple homogenizer to make it at a rate of 4 liters every 10 minutes (from the paper.)

When I was 8 (36 years ago) I was doing a project at school on renewable energy and I had the idea of a wind up radio, torch and even a tv set.

It came from the dynamo light I had on my bike.

Now someone else took that idea and patented it got investment and made millions.

So next time make sure you sort it, so you are the pioneer.

I actually can see a use for it.- the other night I was watching - Untold Stories of the E.R. and the Doctor was saying about having to hurry to get a vent tube down a guy's throat before it closes due to infection or allergic reaction.

This could actually be useful if they don't have enough time to do that. Not to mention those tubes don't always allow enough oxygen to go into the body. (I read somewhere that even with the biggest tube it rides somewhere around 70% of the recommended volume of air.)

Which that guy said about 15 minutes before the antibiotics took effect.

Which is why all one would need to extend this 30 minute time limit is a CO2 scrubber affixed to the body wherever appropriate.

Fill the lungs with fluid (and wear something insulated) and we're talking some pretty radical possibilities here.

No reason this can't be a semi-permanent approach if the CO2 is scrubbed somehow.

And yes, what I am describing is effectively an artificial lung.

No they don't. Their lungs don't "inflate" untill the baby's born, so they don't breath before that. Up untill this point, they get all of their oxyginated blood through the umbilical cord.

so, theoretically its posible to replicates this process for adult human ?

replace the cord with tubes, pump needed oxyginated blood with it, etc... etc... ?

More then theoretically possible... Whilst the diving suit in The Abyss movie was scifi, the rat breathing the flourocarbon solution was real. It's been known about for many years but the technology is still very much in its infancy.

Just imagine what they will be able to do when it's all grown up.
