Until I read the Yanko Design post on the Aimee Franco ‘UniTam’ medical device, I didn’t know that the term ‘Golden Hour’ existed nor knew what it meant. It actually refers to the time between a serious accident and medical attention.

The Aimee Franco ‘UniTam’ gadget actually extends that hour for as long as possible. Injecting the drug Tamiasyn into the traumatized body, it keeps “cells, organs, and tissues alive for potentially several real hours after hemorrhagic shock.”
