My work shows how therapeutic hypothermia can affect a patient's blood flow to the brain. The blood coming from the arteries is blue because it has been cooled down. The blood is more clotted towards the heart, but as it moves away from the heart, it flows more freely, shown by the changing of the squiggles. I chose to make a necklace because it lies close to the wearer's heart and brain. Also, it lies by the lungs, showing the importance of the flow of oxygen to the brain.
