The survival rate for box jellyfish sting victims may be boosted by methods found in a new study. Box jellyfish stings are lethal and can kill within five minutes. Sting victims have traditionally been given CPR to revive their hearts, but CPR administration would stop after about 20 minutes if the patient does not recover. A new study found that jellyfish venom contains two components. The first kills 70 per cent of human heart cells Flinders University researchers have created green light glasses that reset the human body clock combating insomnia and jet lag. Exposure to light changes the behavior of a gland at the base of the brain which controls the body clock. The inventors say that using the device can help long-haul travellers avoid the symptoms of jet lag. When traveling to a different time zone, three to four daily 50-minute sessions with the green-light glasses are required. This helps a traveller's body clock adjust to the new time zone, avoiding jet lag. SOURCE: news.com.au, ubergizmo
