The person who discovered a way to preserve blood plasma was Charles R. Drew. He figured out that he could dry plasma and then later reconstitute it.

it could be yellow but it depends on what plasma you mean

Nope.!! but the milk from young coconuts CAN be used as a substitute for blood plasma.!

The plasma , Actually it could be Urea too, But mostly Plasma

William Harvey's discovery was limited because:•Doctors could not make blood transfusions until they discovered blood groups in 1901. •Many thought that his idea was mad. •Some Doctors ignored his theory.

A person can be given the wrong Blood group and/or the body could REJECT the Blood just as it can reject a donated organ.

Chemotherapy, radiation and some diseases such as aplastic anemia and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) can cause unsafe low levels of blood cells. Using donated blood, transfusions are a way to temporarily increase the number of blood cells. There are different types of blood transfusions to match the types of blood cells a patient may need.Many patients get blood transfusions after a bone marrow or cord blood transplant. These could be transfusions of red blood cells, platelets, or rarely, white blood cells.Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body.White blood cells help fight infection.Platelets help control bleeding.Red blood cell transfusion+ Platelet transfusion+ White blood cell transfusion+ What to expect during transfusions+ Blood transfusion side effects and risks+ Talk with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about blood transfusions.

One cause for blood cells to burst could be a severe reaction to blood transfusions. Another cause could be an inherited disorder affecting the hemoglobin or prescription medication.

Yes. She died from loss of too much blood and if someone gave her blood, she might have lived. But doing that was against her religion so they couldn't do that:( This is false. Selena WAS given a blood transfusion at the hospital, but she had bled out well before she'd reached there. They performed surgery on her, she just didn't make it. There is no religion in the world that prohibits life-saving mesaures like blood transfusions. Ok whoever said there was no religion that prohibits blood transfusions needs to become familiar with the Jehovas Witnesses. They do block blood transfusions though I am unsure if Selena received the operation.

- Decreased risk in pregnancies with different blood types. - Decrease in Rhesus disease - Allowing easier blood transfusions between Rh+ and Rh-.

Could be true for some people because there is always a range when it comes to biology, people are all different. But, usually plasma makes up about 50% of blood volume for men and about 60% of blood volume for women.

According to statistics from the Red Cross, only about 7 percent of the population has type O negative blood. So, this makes it fairly unique. The key thing about type O negative blood is that it allows for ANYONE to receive it. The "O" in "O negative" is the primary blood type. It is determined by the types of antigens on the blood cells. Type A has "A" antigens...and usually "anti-B" antibodies in plasma. This means that, if a person with type "A" blood gets anything with "B" antigens (such as "B" or "AB"), then they will have a hemolytic reaction as their immune system attacks the "foreign" blood cells, and they could die. Type B has "B" antigens...and usually "anti-A" antibodies in plasma. So, if type "B" recipients get type "A" or "AB", they could die. Type AB has "A" antigens AND "B" antigens...and generally no "anti-A" or "anti-B" antibodies in plasma. So, they can get ANY type of blood...they won't react to anything. This makes type "AB" people universal recipients. Now, Type O has no antigens on the blood cells, but generally both "anti-A" and "anti-B" antibodies in plasma. So, while they cannot receive anything but type "O", they can GIVE to anyone. This makes people with type "O" blood, universal donors. The negative and positive are Rh factors, a secondary antigen-antibody factor to the primary blood type. It's important in cases of blood transfusions for infants, and situations where the mother's and infant's blood Rh types are different. Therefore, "O negative" (sometimes called "O neg") blood can be given to ANYONE...making it very important in blood transfusions.

It could mean your RBC count is high, and your blood is thick........You need plasma. You may have a disorder that causes your plasma to be low or that causes your RBC count to be high. It also could mean, If you are an endurance athlete, that you are "blood doping" with hemopoitin in order to augment your oxygen carrying capacity.

I think there are two main components of blood, namely the blood cells and the blood plasma. Blood itself consists of blood cells suspended in blood plasma, which is mainly water. Blood cells could further be branched into three groups, which are red blood cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes) and platelets (thrombocytes). I also know that there are several types of white blood cells, each performing different functions in the body.

you could probably die if it wasnt treated soon enough, but im no doctor so........

Yes. If the wife had sex with someone who had the virus, she might contract HIV. This could also occur due to tainted blood transfusions, which occurred when blood donations were not screened for HIV.

Charles Drew found that blood could be preserved by separating the liquid red blood cells from the near solid plasma and freezing the two separately

Plasma is the forth state of matter, beyond that of a gas. In comparison with a gas it is far more dispursed. Plasma is also a solution found in the blood which contains platelets, bloods cells and salts etc. On the basis that salts are dissolved in this, you could say this form of plasma would be a solution.

no, the o blood type is recessive, so the mom must have either cheated, or been given the wrong blood during a blood transfusion. (doctors don't give transfusions to pregnant women, because it could be bad for the baby.)

AB red cell donations can only be given to AB recipients. But whole blood donations are separated into different products and AB plasma can be given to other blood groups

There are several restrictions that could potentially cause a person to be denied donating plasma. Some of these restrictions are age, high blood pressure, rapid heat rate, drug use, and anemia.

Since a patient with Type B blood has B antigens on their RBC's and since Type O blood has both anti-A and anti-B antibodies present in the blood plasma, the donor blood needs to be treated before transfusion. The Type O blood needs to be separated into packed cells and plasma, usually done by centrifuge, and only the packed cells should be used for the transfusion. Remember the anti-B antibodies are present in the Type O blood plasma and could cause serious damage in the system of a patient with Type B blood.
