Dacron and Glass Wool Filtration of Blood
The use of glass or plastic wool filaments to remove adhesive and aggregated platelets and leukocytes from blood being transfused was suggested in 1961 (SWANK, 1961). Since then this method of blood treatment has been tested by a number of investigators in animals (HIRSCH et al., 1964; ALLWEIS et al., 1967; GILBOE et al., 1967), and is now being tested in man1. The principles involved, and methods for both continuous filtration in an extracorporeal system, and for filtration of blood prior to individual transfusions will be the subject of this communication.
