Wacky Wednesday's Cool!

OK, wacky word fans. I'm reading a great book now, which mentioned this notable person: His name is John Freese.

What is he credited for doing? Your choices are below:


John Freese...

1.  Invented the Icee drink.

2. Helps wrongfully convicted inmates.

3. Pioneered the cooling of cardiac arrest patients to preserve brain health.


The answer is at the bottom of the page. 
















The correct answer is #3. John Freese, MD, pioneered the cooling of cardiac arrest patients, so once revived, they are much more likely to have intact brain function. The book is Erasing Death by Sam Parnia, MD. I'll blog about it when I am finished reading it.
