ORIGINAL ANSWER: Yes . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IMPROVED ANSWER: Yes, coconut water/juice can be substituted for blood plasma. In fact, may third w…orld countries have done this for years. It is not only cheaper, it is more readily available than blood from donors. Coconut water/juice is sterile, does not attack red blood cells, is easily absorbed by the body, and has a cool feel/cooling effect. It is full of minerals and electrolytes and is used in other countries as a substitute for sports drinks, as well. It is also high in potassium.

Some people have an inherited disorder in which the body produces too little of the plasma clotting factors VIII (hemophilia A) or IX (hemophilia B). Transfusions of these clo…tting factors help people with hemophilia stop bleeding.
Blood plasma is the yellow liquid component of blood in which the blood cells in whole blood are normally suspended. It makes up about 55% of the total blood volume. It is the… intravascular fluid part of extracellular fluid (all body fluid outside of cells). It is mostly water (93% by volume) and contains dissolved proteins, glucose, clotting factors, mineral ions, hormones and carbon dioxide (plasma being the main medium for excretory product transportation). Blood plasma is prepared by spinning a tube of fresh blood containing an anti-coagulant in a centrifuge until the blood cells fall to the bottom of the tube. The blood plasma is then poured or drawn off. Blood plasma has a density of approximately 1025 kg/m3, or 1.025 kg/l hope that answers your question
