ORIGINAL ANSWER: Yes . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IMPROVED ANSWER: Yes, coconut water/juice can be substituted for blood plasma. In fac…t, may third world 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.

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
That's correct. Plasma means the liquid portion of the blood, from which the blood cells have been removed.
yes. The fresher it is, the better! Depending what you are using it for.
Plasma means to mold or spread thin. It holds what are called the formed elements of the blood - the red cells, white cells and platelets.
There is no liquid inside a plasma television. The "plasma" refers to low pressure gas contained in cells that for the image. When the gas is excited by a voltage across it, i…t changes state from a gas to a plasma which will pass an electric current. At no time does it become a liquid.
