An American doctor says that modern medicine may soon have the capability to resurrect someone up to a full day after death.

Dr. Sam Parina is a critical care physician who teaches at Stony Brook University School of Medicine in New York, and he says, "With today's medicine, we can bring people back to life up to one, maybe two hours, sometimes even longer, after their heart stopped beating and they have thus died by circulatory failure. In the future, we will likely get better at reversing death."

Parina says it's a misconception that the brain suffers massive damage after three-to-five minutes of oxygen deprivation,, and that most patients who get resuscitated get discharged with no neurological damage at all.
