Is it true that one of the blood substitutes the HLC can suggest to doctors is strawberry Kool Aid? "Properly sterilized of course. We're not that stupid."
BLOOD @ tms tonight???
one of the blood substitutes the HLC can suggest to doctors is strawberry Kool Aid?LOL, Gregor! Wait a minute!? Is this a plug for your avatar and a thinly veiled reference to the Jonestown massacre?
You have a sharp mind, Bizzybee
"one of the blood substitutes the HLC can suggest to doctors is strawberry Kool Aid"
HA! -not so far from the truth...
I actually went to the meeting to hear it last night (need to know what they'll do to my dear ol mum if she were to need a transfusion...) and a brother gave "an experience" of someone who actually transfused TAP WATER into someones blood stream successfully!!!!!!!
of course as all wise doctors know, the only reason ya transfuse anything into the bloodstream is to expand the volume of yer blood and you can use anything for that... ditchwater, day old coffee...
Also, because blood does not oxygenate for ~24 hours so transfusing blood is "next to worthless" if you're looking to increase oxygen or whatever.
to think of all the OTHER delightful words of truth that I have been missing out on...
