Abstract

Blood replacement presents problems in most fields of medicine. While the human organism can compensate for small blood losses by means of spontaneous refilling of the vascular system, larger blood losses must be replaced by means of infusions of blood, plasma, artificial colloids or electrolyte solutions. If the lost volume has reached a certain degree and cannot be replaced immediately, a syndrome arises which is termed shock.
