Volume Replacement Using Blood

  • Ulrich F. Gruber

Abstract

With the discovery of blood groups and subgroups, together with the introduction of reliable preservation processes, blood transfusions have become routine therapy in all hospitals (review in [1797, 1798]). On the principle that lost fluid should be replaced with similar fluid, blood is administered in many places, even after small blood losses. The replacement of blood losses with stored citrated blood is a very effective method of treatment [747]. Without doubt it represents the greatest and most important progress in the management of hemorrhagic shock in this century [1342].
