People can die of hypothermia in this season. Imagine a situation when you come across two people lying in open with no clothes early in the morning. One of them is shivering and the other one is not. The one who is shivering indicates that his body is trying to compensate with the low body core temperature. The other one, who is not shivering, may be dead, dying or normal.

Recall your naturopathy teaching “Sar Thanda, Pet Naram and Paon Garam”. If the sole of the feet and the feet are cold and the person is not shivering, this is a medical emergency. On the contrary, if the person is not shivering and the feet are warm, it is not medical emergency.

Therefore, hypothermia with no shivering and hyperthermia with no sweating are bad signs.

Soul does not depart the body immediately after death

According to Prashna Upanishad, at the time of death, the Prana Vayu (life force and respiration) merges with Udana Vayu (brain stem reflexes) and leaves the body.

But this does not happen immediately after clinical death, defined as stoppage of heart and respiration. Medically the term used for clinically dead patients is sudden cardiac arrest.

As per modern medicine, in cardiac arrest, the brain does not die for the next 10 minutes and during this period, if the heart can be revived, life can be brought back.

The revival of patient during this period can be remembered by the formula of ten which is that within ten minutes of the stoppage of heart (cardiac arrest), if effective chest compressions are given for the next 10 minutes with a speed of 100 per min (10 x 10), 80% of the cardiac arrest victims can be revived.

This period can be much longer in hypothermia state. If the temperature of the body is low, the soul does not leave the body till the temperature is brought back to normal. Today, this property of soul is also used as therapeutic measure where patients who cannot be revived in the first 10 min of clinical death are put in a freezing chamber and artificial hypothermia is produced and these patients can then be transported to an advance cardiac centre where even after 24 hours resuscitation measure can be applied after re-warming the body. Many people have been revived even after 24 hours of cardiac arrest with such a technology.

There are instances in literature where a newborn with hypothermia was declared dead and got revived in the cremation ground when the heat of the atmosphere brought his temperature to normal and the pressure of the wood worked like cardiac massage.

This aspect of “life after death” is a contribution of the modern science to the Vedic science. Though in Vedic literature, it was a well-known phenomenon as Savitri brought life back into Satyavan even after his clinical death.

The take home message is that one should not declare a patient dead in the first 10 minutes give cardiac massage and try reviving him with chest compression cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Why can the body be revived even after hours of death in hypothermia?

  • It is a well–known phenomenon that cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is not successful if the body temperature is less than 35°C.
  • In hypothermic deaths, a person can be revived even after hours of cardiac arrest. Only when the body temperature is brought back to normal, will CPR be effective. This would mean that consciousness gets frozen and does not leave the body when the temperature is below 35°C. This forms the basis for induced hypothermia after death to revive the brain.
  • Modern science is silent about this mechanism but ancient Indian literature talks about it in great detail. As per Chandogya Upanishad (6.15.1), the process of death takes time and is a sequential process.
  • First, the motor indriyas organs (Karma Indriyas) stop functioning then the sensory indriya organs (Gnanaindriyas) followed by cessation of prana or respiration.
  • Once this happens, the frozen sensory organs, motor organs, manas (mind, body, memory and ego) and prana have to get dissolved in Tej and then leave the body, which means presence of Tej is the most important factor for consciousness to leave the body.
  • In modern science, Tej would be governed by the body temperature. That means if the body temperature is low, the motor and sensory indriyas and manas product (Vritti) will find no heat or Tej to dissolve and come out of the body.
  • Therefore, till the body temperature (Tej) is brought back to normal, the indriyas will cease to function but still be revivable.
  • This process may take up to 48 minutes in presence of Tej and there is no time limit if Tej is absent.
  • A clinically dead person with cardiac arrest therefore will have absent functioning of Manas organs, Sensory organs, mind, intellect, memory and ego with no respiration but yet revivable back to life.

It is well known phenomenon that Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is not successful if the body temperature is less than 35oC.

In hypothermic deaths, a person can be revived even after hours of cardiac arrest. Only once the body temperature is brought back to normal CPR will be effective.

That would mean that consciousness gets frozen and does not leave the body when the temperature is below 35oC.

This forms the basis for induced hypothermia after death to revive the brain.

The modern science is silent about this mechanism but the ancient Indian literature talks about it in great detail. As per Chandogya Upanishad (6.15.1), the process of death takes time and is a sequential process.

First, the motor  indriyas organs (Karma Indriyas) stop functioning followed by sensory indriya organs (Gnanaindriyas) followed by cessation of pana or respiration.

Once this happens, the frozen sensory organs, motor  organs, manas (mind, body, memory and ego) and prana have to get dissolved in Tej and then leave the body which means presence of Tej is the most important factor for consciousness to leave the body.

In modern science, Tej would be governed by the body temperature. That means if the body temperature is low, the motor and sensory indriyas and manas Product (Vritti) will find no heat or Tej to dissolve and come out of the body.

Therefore, till the body temperature (Tej) is brought back to normal, the indriyas will seize to function but still be revivable.

This process may take upto 48 minutes in presence of Tej and there is no time limit if Tej is absent.

A clinically dead person with cardiac arrest, therefore will have absent functioning of Manas organs, Sensory organs, mind, intellect, memory and ego with no respiration but yet revivable back to life.

First Aid in Burns

1. Patients with severe thermal burns are at significant risk of death and major morbidity.

2.Look for evidence of respiratory distress and smoke inhalation injury, a common cause of death in the acute burn victim.

3.Laryngeal edema can develop suddenly and unexpectedly.

4.Burn depth and size determine fluid resuscitation and the need for transfer.

5.Vascular collapse from burn shock is a critical component.

6.Rapid, aggressive fluid resuscitation to reconstitute intravascular volume and maintain end-organ perfusion is crucial.

7.The fluid requirement during the initial 24 hours of treatment is 4 mL/kg of body weight for each percent of TBSA burned, given IV. Superficial burns are excluded from this calculation. One-half of the calculated fluid need is given in the first eight hours, and the remaining half is given over the subsequent 16 hours.

8.Monitor urine output is important

9.Hourly urine output should be maintained at 0.5 mL/kg in adults.

10.Carbon monoxide and cyanide – Burn patients may be exposed to carbon monoxide, requiring immediate treatment with high-flow oxygen.

11.Cool and clean wounds, but avoid inducing hypothermia.

12.Remove any jewelry and any hot or burned clothing and obvious debris not densely adherent to the skin.

13.Irrigation with cool water may be used.

14.Topical antibiotics are applied to all non superficial burns.

15.Give opioids (morphine) to treat pain and give tetanus prophylaxis.
