I did think for myself as well as researching. however I came to the conclusion that short term would result in maybe brain damage and medium and long term death. But I wanted to know if there was more to it than that.

That's not shutting down the heart, that's cutting oxygen to the brain...

It can, but you can also have an artificial heart/pump...what exactly are you trying to know, about the heart cells or oxygen deprivation to the brain?

I'm confused, none of these concern the heart cells.

Do you mean RBCs and things like clotting?
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.

In your original post their are no eference to the Cardiovascular cells, In fact you have to think about all cells and their requirements. Some will die soon, some not so soon.
Which and why? that is another way to put your question.
