From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

Suspended animation is the temporary cessation of a life form's vital functions, often used to transport individuals from one time period to another without aging.

Humans placed themselves in suspended animation on the Nerva Beacon in order to survive the solar flares that devastated Earth. (DW: The Ark in Space) Millions of years later, much of humanity was miniaturised and placed in suspended animation on the Ark to survive the long voyage to Refusis II. (DW: The Ark)

Davros was sentenced to be placed in suspended animation as punishment for his crimes. (DW: Resurrection of the Daleks) Tranquil Repose placed dying millionaires and politicians in suspended animation until cures for their conditions could be found. (DW: Revelation of the Daleks)

Suspended animation

Suspended animation is the slowing of life processes by external means without termination. Breathing, heartbeat, and other involuntary functions may still occur, but they can only be detected by artificial means. Extreme cold is used to precipitate the slowing of an individual's functions

Examples

  • Captain America, who survived the end of World War II and was revived by The Avengers in the 1960's (2006 in the updated movie)

"To what purpose? We will not notice the length of time. We will not care. We will be asleep."
Firrerreo prisoner in 14 ABY

Suspended animation was the slowing of life processes by external means without termination. Involuntary bodily functions like breathing and heart beats may still occur, but they can only be detected by artificial means. Extreme cold is used to precipitate the slowing of an individual's functions; use of this process has led to the developing science of cryonics.

Suspended animation took place throughout the galaxy in various forms including the sleeper ships carrying Human settlers from Coruscant in the days before the Old Republic, Carbon freezing (as in the case of Han Solo on Cloud City and the Black Sun criminal Czethros), various Sith Alchemical techniques and the Imperial Procurator of Justice Lord Hethrir's "sleeping coffins" which kept the subject asleep and alive via life-support systems. However, there were some cases of subjects dying while being held in suspended animation. It also had the effect, after only a few months of suspension, of temporary blindness, nausea, and firing nerves upon awakening.[1]
