ABSTRACT

In August 1940 the Blood Transfusion Association in New York was asked to aid in the development of plasma for shipment to England. This body was formerly known as the Blood Transfusion Betterment Association and first began its work in 1929. More recently it has been determined that all medical aid to Britain shall come through the American Red Cross. The record as here produced is an indication of an important activity and has value as a scientific medical document. Four thousand seven hundred and twelve liters was delivered for shipment to England; one shipment consisting of 222 liters was lost by the sinking of the S. S. Western Prince. The association not only aided in the collection of blood but provided funds for the study of new technics for drying plasma and has also developed a plan for collecting a hundred thousand different bloods.
