His Own Blood
Idea Of Self-Transfusion1
Developed By Army
BATON ROUGE, La., Aug. 15.-(P)
-Every United States soldier even-
tually may carry a vial of his ownt
blood serum tucked away in his
knapsack for immediate transfusion
in case he's wounded on the battle-
It would be bled from his veins
beforehand, turned into a light brown
powder at Louisiana State Univer-
sity's proposed drying plant, and giv-
en back to him in a form weighing
only a few ounces.
"Every soldier might be his own
doctor, inasmuch as his blood, after
drying, could be given him to carry,
in a small container," commented Dr.
Urban Maes, director of the L.S.U.
medical school's surgery department.
"In this way," he added, "the
wounded man could be given not
only his own blood serum, but also
that of his unwounded comrades."
The dried product, reported by Dr.
Maes as equally effective as natural
blood, is obtained by drying serum
separated from blood cells.
