Does anyone know what it takes to bring a space marine back from his suspended animation state?

Hey, how ya going?
To answer your question, might I suggest checking out the GWUK site, more specifically the "Creation of a Space Marine" article: Link. (Check the "Implants" section, under "Sus-an Membrane"):
Here's a quote from the article, explaining Space Marine suspension:Hope this helps,Phase 12 â€“ Sus-an Membrane. This flat, circular organ is implanted over the top of the exposed brain. It then grows into the brain tissue until completely merged. The organ is ineffective without subsequent chemical therapy and training. However, a properly tutored Marine may then enter into a state of suspended animation. This may be a conscious action, or may happen automatically in the event of extreme physical trauma. In this condition, a Marine may survive for many years, even if bearing otherwise fatal injuries. Only appropriate chemical therapy and auto-suggestion can revive a Marine from this state â€“ a Marine cannot revive himself. The longest known period of deanimation followed by successful reanimation is 567 years in the case of brother Silas Err of the Dark Angels (d.321 M.37).

There's a description of a cybernetic implantation procedure in a piece on the Iron Hands in a white Dwarft, I'm not sure which issue. It simply says that a stimulant was injected to break the sus-an suspension.
Only apothecaries with proper training can.
