In my TU there are (at least) three different ways to put someone into low berth.
A: No medical supervision (you get into the berth yourself and press a button).
B: Routine supervision (Competent med-tech spends 10 minutes supervising up to four people at a time).
C: Expert supervision (Medical team in a fully-equipped hospital spends hours putting you into low berth).
Reviving with no significant risk of death1 depends on the way you were put into the low berth.
A: Medical team in a fully-equipped hospital spends hours reviving you.
B: Competent med-tech spends 10 minutes supervising the revival up to four people at a time.
C: Unsupervised revival works fine.
Method C is used for putting people into the frozen watch. Method B is used by starships. Method A is for those emergencies.
1 There IS a small risk of death, but it's far below the granularity of the game rules and firmly into the realm of referee fiat (a.k.a. plot device territory).
