Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A blood substitute (also called artificial blood or blood surrogates) is a substance used to mimic and function blood. Although it contains no blood components such as red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets or plasma, it removes carbon dioxide and transfers oxygen throughout the body until bone marrow is capable of producing more red blood cells. The main categories of blood substitutes are hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs) and perfluorocarbon-based oxygen carriers (PFBOCs).show more
