Perflurochemicals (perflurocarbons) are being researched into as

an artificial blood Synthetic, and completely inert Sterile Cheap

to produce - compared to real blood Can dissolve 5 times more

oxygen then blood Free of biological material - sterile Needs to be

combined with other agents before being used in the bloodstream

(eg. Lecithin)
