    NV - Cryotherapist found dead inside ice chamber

    NBC:

    Nevada Cryotherapy Salon Manager Found Dead Inside Cryochamber

    A young salon manager was found dead inside a cryochamber where she is thought to have suffocated, according to police and local media reports.

    Employees at Rejuvenice in Henderson, Nevada found the body of Chelsea Ake, 24, inside one of the ice machines earlier this week, NBC station KSNV reported.

    Ake, the manager of the business, is thought to have gone into one of the cryochambers on her own, it said.

    A puzzler.

    "All devices are equipped with numerous safety features and doors are never locked, which allows clients to stop treatment instantaneously at any time," according to Rejuvenice's website.

    Agree. But hopefully the business had cameras so i can rule out the last person who left and supposedly seen her closing things down or even possibly walking in there.

    “It's very frustrating to know because you know there are no cameras in there,” Shae-Lynn Bee said. “Basically, the only person that does know what happened is Chelsea."

    By "in there," I suppose she means the cryochamber itself. So we'll see -- has to be some reason for the cops' ruling.

    It seems like that icing chamber is too dangerous. -240 degrees in 3 minutes. But maybe it was suicide or accidentally press the wrong time. I guess it will depend the position her body was found. Idk

    I'm thinking most likely shock from a dramatic drop in temp. Idk if it gradually drops on its own or manually. Maybe a setting malfunction occured. Idk

    Does anyone know what the use is for this cryotherapy? Reminds me of the deaths in the hot rock chamber some time ago.

    It is so bizarre, it almost sounds like a murder mystery- like an episode of Elementary or Castle...

    She should have had someone else there with her unfortunately. Do these pseudo treatments ever do anyone any good other than to help them part with their money, and in this case her life? I doubt it.
    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    What used for: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryotherapy

    "...the local or general use of low temperatures in medical therapy. Cryotherapy is used to treat a variety of benign and malignant tissue damage, medically called lesions. .... The most prominent use of the term refers to the surgical treatment, specifically known as cryosurgery. Other therapies that use the term are whole-body cryotherapy[2] and ice pack therapy."

    The 'salon' ref and 'Rejuvenice' business name made me think more along the line of elective aethestic/med-spa treatments like Botox rather than trad. med treatments. Googling 'Rejuvenice Henderson' sent me to groupons & yelp. It's puzzling.

    In any case, sad, sad, sad.

    Beautician who died in cryochamber 'was using the machine by herself, died within seconds and could have suffocated'

    Chelsea Ake, manager of Rejuvenice salon in Nevada, found dead Tuesday

    Medical examiner told family she 'died within seconds'

    An official cause of death has not been determined

    Preliminary reports suggest Ake may have suffocated from gases

    Cryotherapy is a controversial 'medical therapy' where the body is briefly exposed to to air temperatures at minus 240 degrees Fahrenheit

    Machines are never used for more than three minutes at a time

    No Offical Cause of Death, Oct 26. Temp? Gases? Or?

    sbm^ Per link, machine is used for up to 3 min, so can person die 'in seconds' inside chamber? Is cold temp the CoD?

    What gases are inside chamber, present to be inhaled, cause injury, or suffocation death? Equip properly functioning or malfunctioning? Can phantom evildoer pump other deadly gas into chamber? If gases, is CoD suffocation or poison?

    "Investigators have ruled Ake's death as 'operator error', with preliminary findings suggesting she used the machine after-hours and without assistance and may have suffocated inside."

    If there is no official CoD yet, maybe 'op error' is jumping the gun. IDK.

    A commenter says suffocation in nitrogen is surprisingly fast. "Quoting Wikipedia:
    'According to the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, in humans, “breathing an oxygen deficient atmosphere can have serious and immediate effects, including unconsciousness after only one or two breaths. The exposed person has no warning and cannot sense that the oxygen level is too low.” In the US, at least 80 people died due to accidental nitrogen asphyxiation between 1992 and 2002.[3] Hazards with inert gases and the risks of asphyxiation are well established.'" bbm ^Link to USChem does not link to ^ quote.

    Was Henderson cryochamber an oxygen deficient atmosphere which would cause Nitrogen Asphyxiation Death? Does system normally pump oxygen into chamber so person inside can breathe? Is NA^ more likely than temp as CoD? Maybe we need patience until autopsy report is released.
    Med professionals? Anyone?

    "...describing a hydrofacial, one of the treatments offered by the salon: ...[peel, exfoliate, other steps] '...we apply a serum that protects the outer layer of the skin and moisturizes it. We like to do the cryofacial afterward because it helps seal everything in.'” http://jezebel.com/salon-worker-feat...die-1738649255
