Nanobubble Vaccine May Soon Be On Every Crash Cart

Posted on January 20, 2013

Getting vaccinated with oxygen micro-bubbles may be the next big breakthrough in saving lives. When lungs or airways are compromised our bodies brain and major organs shut down because of the lack of oxygen. This condition is called hypoxemia. Current attempts to bypass the lungs have involved attempting to inject oxygen directly into the bloodstream. This has had limited success.

Researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital, however, have been experimenting with a new way of delivering oxygen to the blood using microscopic nanobubbles of oxygen encased in a foamy lipid suspension that releases the gas directly when injected like a vaccine. In the image below you can see one of the microscopic nanobubbles in yellow, adjacent to some red blood cells.
