An experimental investigation of the use of a fluorocarbon (FC 43) as blood substitute



An experimental investigation of the use of a fluorocarbon (FC 43) as blood substitute



Minerva Medica 72(3): 167-172



A fluorocarbonate emulsion was infused into 30 rabbits after the removal of varying amounts of blood. Parameters relating to the transport of respiratory gases and the fundamental features of the macrocirculation were monitored. The animals were sacrificed after 6 or 24 hr and the histological changes in the main parenchymas were assessed. The material injected displayed low toxicity, a good ability to act as a vehicle for oxygen and carbon dioxide, and no tendency to alter the macrocirculation. Numerous problems remain, however, with regard to the stability of fluorocarbonates over the course of time and the effect of their uptake by tissues.
