(From the old blog)
Is this even real?
I seriously doubt that this is real. But if it is, I hope whoever did this goes to jail.
it is real. from 1940 soviet russia.
“his disturbing film records the successful experiments in the resuscitation of life to dead animals (dogs), as conducted by Dr. S.S. Bryukhonenko at the Institute of Experimental Physiology and Therapy, Voronezh, U.S.S.R.”
Wow, that is really creepy.
this is sad,poor dog head…they kept banging in his ears and shining light in his eyes and they also put sour acid on his nose and mouth…animal cruelty and creepy too!!:O
I have my doubts about this clip, even though I’m sure they did horrible experiments. I put up some drawings on my page to illustrate why I think it’s fake (here).
Sorry skeptics, but this video is real. The research learned from such experiments led to the development of the first Heart/Lung machines, by John Gibbons, which are now used regularly for all types of cardiac and great vessel surgeries. I am a cardiovascular perfusionist and use these machines to do incredible things to the human body. Most striking is a procedure called circulatory arrest whereby we cool a patient’s body to temperatures approaching 18 degrees celsius, induce a barbituate coma turning off the brain, arrest the heart with a potassium solution and lastly shut down the patient’s circulation and exsanguinate (or remove the blood) from the body. The patient is effectively dead and hypothermically preserved. This state can last for suprisingly long periods of time before the technique is reversed and the patient is brought back to life. This is mainstream medical practice and a million people every year have similar procedures performed in the United States alone. Check out Perfusion.Com for more information about the medical profession and science behind it.
This is clearly real, and it was worth one dogs life to save many people, and the dog likes the tasty sour snack.
Whilst the theory behind it is perhaps sound and in use today in medical situations, and experiments of this kind may well have advanced our understanding – this video is ringing loud bulls*** alarms in my head.
Some of the movements of the dog’s head just look too improbable to me. It moves up, down and even lifts off the table at one point. This just isn’t possible without the supposedly severed neck muscles being attached to something (i.e. the trunk :o)). Check out the reaction to the citric acid and the noise response at the end.
I’m not dismissing the experiments, or the research. Just this video. It smacks of staged propaganda.
It’s too bad they didn’t attach it to a robot body!
Curse that inadequate soviet technology.
Agree with Mags. There probably were experiments like this, but the fact that the camera never pans to the right to show the actual contraption keeping the dog “alive” has me thinking it’s fake.
No way the dog could lift its head like that.
If it is real then the ones responsible should get their fucking head cut off so we can do it to them if not cut their fucking heads off anyway for even dreaming of hurting an animal. Bastards
those sick motherfuckers we should string them up and beat the shit outta them i know it’s for the advances in science but there are different methodes honestly…
those people are fucked. why not do it on a useless human being? the dog might have had a personality.
Probably a staged recreation because the original experiment wasn’t filmed, so who knows to what extent it represents reality. Sort of like the Rathergate memo.
