Abstract and Introduction
Objectives: We discuss two main categories of blood substitutes: perfluorocarbons and hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers.
Methods: We provide a review of the notable products developed in both categories and include their attributes as well as their setbacks.
Results: We contribute a case report tothe growing literature of the successful use of Sanguinate.
Conclusions: We find that artificial oxygen carriers are an attractive field of research because of the practical limitations and the multitude of potential complications that surround human blood transfusions.
