The scientists from the United States of America have created an artificial blood. This substance is able to perform the same functions as the real human blood. It provides the body tissue of oxygen. It also carries useful microelements.
Artificial blood is stored in powder form. Its shelf life can exceed one year.
To start using this material, it is necessary to add sterile water.
The powder is stored in containers for intravenous injections. It is very convenient because the ambulance doctors can carry them in their bags and use as needed.
Synthetic blood is produced from the purified human hemoglobin proteins, which are lowered into the polymer.
The scientists believe that their invention would be a real breakthrough in medicine. This substance will save a lot of lives.
More than eighty years were spent in the search for a qualitative synthetic blood.
