Blood Substitutes

Blood Substitutes

  • Over 70 years ago, the U.S. War Department sought a blood replacement solution that could be stored at room temperature and administered in the battlefield without the need for crossmatching
  • Realization that the red blood cell’s function to deliver oxygen to tissues could not be met by most available agents used as volume replacements for lost blood
  • The emphasis has now focused on the development of oxygen delivery agents rather than blood replacement agents
