Soviet Experiments in the Revival of Dead Organisms
Experiments in the Revival of Organisms is a 1940 motion picture which documents Soviet research into the resuscitation of clinically dead organisms. British scientist J. B. S. Haldane appears in the film’s introduction and narrates the film. The operations are credited to Doctor Sergei S. Bryukhonenko.
Bryukhonenko developed a new version of the autojektor heart-lung machine for use on humans in the same year; it can be seen today on display at the Museum of Cardiovascular Surgery at the Scientific Center of Cardiovascular Surgery in Russia. Bryukhonenko was posthumously awarded the prestigious Lenin Prize.
