Saving People in Disaster Crisis, Concept

So often when we see huge Natural Disasters there are many people killed, but for everyone who perishes there are 5-10 people injured; many very seriously. So often too the region of the world were the disaster occurs does not have enough hospital beds, medical professionals or the right equipment needed to help save those lives. Well, there is a new discovery, which might change all that. Mark Roth and his colleagues have made a rather fascinating discovery; they have found a way to put mice into a suspended animation state. They used a very toxic gas; hydrogen sulfide, which when used in smaller amounts puts these small mammals into temporary hibernation. Similar to a bear when it hibernates.

If we had tanks of hydrogen sulfide and put accident victims which needed help but there was not enough staff or facilities to help them into suspended animation or temporarily induced hibernation, that would buy us additional time to handle the crisis. Here is how it might work; each victim is administered the necessary temporary help to stop the bleeding. Those which need additional help, which is unavailable are put into a room which has the proper percentage of gas in it, which puts them to sleep. Their bodies like the mice would slow down 90% and thus we could work on the victims which staff was available for. Protocol would need to be worked out of course, but by doing this we could save lives and not have so many injured die due to lack of medical facilities or medical staffing in that time of need. Think on this please.
