Who needs ECMO - when you can have RECTUMO?

Presumably not to be mixed with flatulence and ignition sources.

I'd prefer Helium enemas & a cork, to see if we can make a human float

Do helium enemas give you hilariously high-pitched farts?

Should do a little bit, yes.

The pitch doesn't really change, but the timbre does due to the change in sound speed changing the wavelength of the frequencies, so that higher frequencies in speech resonate at the size of your voice box.

There's less in the way of a resonant cavity involved in farting, but probably still a bit of that going into the timbre.

I wonder how long it'll take until this is advertised as a quack treatment.
