Abstract : The former Lazarus Group envisions the establishment of a goal-orientated, comprehensive, integrated and, multifaceted research program. This program could develop a therapeutic intervention capable of saving the lives of gravely wounded combat casualty dying of exsanguinating hemorrhage. The main thrust of the investigational work would be to find a means of inducing temporary tolerance to the global ischemia that develops during severe hypoperfusion with impending cardiac arrest. The contents of this report arise from the deliberations of the Lazarus Group in Feb and Aug 1995. The goal of the proposed research would be to make possible what is Imown in science fiction literature as "suspended animation." Even though the term "suspended animation" describes what we wish to be able to achieve, we prefer not to use this term because of its somewhat unscientific and fanciful connotation.
