Abstract:

The papers presented in this volume were prepared for a conference sponsored by the NRC Division of Medical Sciences. For the benefit of medical practitioners, blood bankers, administrators, and biomedical engineers, these papers review such topics as the clinical uses of blood, the management of blood resources, oxygen transport and red-cell function, red-cell survival, and the current status and future of research in red-cell preservation. Information on current research and technology is presented and evaluated not only to encourage its practical application but also as a means of defining areas where further research is needed. The information presented in this report also demonstrates that blood can be stored in such a way as to preserve the viability and function of its red cells for long periods.
