21st Century Medicine

21CM serves as an enabling link in the protection and preservation of living systems. In fact, 21CM’s custom preservation protocols, solutions, and devices support clients across a diverse range of natural and bio-artificial applications including everything from the natural survival of Alaskan beetles to long-term storage of human corneas, and from revival of Hawaiian coral to transportation of bio-artificial constructs.

At 21CM, we take our science seriously. We practice it, we preach it, and we teach it -- because our clients deserve the best that modern biomedical research has to offer. And — ultimately — so do patients who deserve the best in advanced care. Our corporate offices and multi-million dollar research and development laboratories are now housed in a 22,000 square foot free-standing research center in Fontana, less than 50 miles from Los Angeles, California.  (USA)

Boston Children's Hospital. Cardiac Intensive Care Unit

 Boston Children's Hospital has assumed a leadership role in the development of pediatric cardiac intensive care as a specialized service, and we’ve continued to expand our cardiac intensive care team over the years.

Patients unable to breathe because of acute lung failure or an obstructed airway need another way to get oxygen to their blood—and fast—to avoid cardiac arrest and brain injury.  A team led by researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital has designed tiny, gas-filled microparticles that can be injected directly into the bloodstream to quickly oxygenate the blood.  (US)

UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

UPMC Presbyterian, located in the heart of Oakland, is an adult medical-surgical referral hospital and a site of ongoing research and graduate programs in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. 

Surgeons are now on call at the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital to perform the operation, which will buy doctors time to fix injuries that would otherwise be lethal. The technique involves replacing all of a patient’s blood with a cold saline solution, which rapidly cools the body and stops almost all cellular activity. (US)
