At the present time there are no perfusion media, aside from those containing red blood cells, which carry sufficient oxygen to maintain organs having a high QO2. Resort is made to hypothermia, hyperbaria, and perhaps abnormally high flow rates. There is a need for better perfusion media and for artificial blood.
