ABSTRACT

The use of blood and blood derivatives in medical practice is increasing. The intelligent application of existing knowledge and research into the value of blood substitutes during the war was à great contribution to medical science. Many lives in the armed forces were saved by human plasma and serum albumin. The advances gained by the fractionation of plasma have been documented and presented so that full value can be enjoyed by the civilian population. The authors have brought together in one textbook the pertinent literature necessary for the development and expansion of blood programs throughout the country. It will be interesting and informative for the general practitioner, the surgeon, the internist and the pathologist and will become an outstanding reference and guide for hospital administrators. The chemical and physiologic aspects of blood, plasma and plasma derivatives have been stressed; similarly, their preparation, storage and administration are described in detail. A
