Perfluorocarbons As A Blood In Future

[Full Text]



Y. Praveen Kumar






Many people are losing their lives because of lack in supply of proper blood in right time. After collecting the blood from a donor a serious attention must be given to each unit of blood; proper typing, screening for pathogenic organisms & storing at proper temperature. Lack of attentiveness in these areas will make the blood useless, to overcome this situation, a viable blood substitute is needed. Perflurocorbons when used as a blood substitute doesn’t need typing, screening tests for pathogenic organisms, and also perflurocorbons increases the rate of transport of oxygen. So it can be used as a blood substitute.
