Abstract:

In Germany, more than 4 million pints of blood are donated annually. Nearly 900,000 more pints per year are required to satisfy the transfusion needs of German hospitals. How will this gap be closed? Blood-economizing measures used by surgeons and some of the research efforts to create synthetic blood are the focus of this program. A scientist is filmed in Mexico working with the hemoglobin from pig's blood to treat diabetes-related sores. Next, an anesthesiologist explains the technique of presurgical blood withdrawal and thinning for patients undergoing major operations. Research regarding the effects of the hormone EPO on mice concludes the program.
