why give blood?

yeh exactly... why?

one of the oldest medical practices, giving your body the blood of anothers..

http://www.med.unipi.it/patchir/bloodl/bmr.htm

^ good reading in there.. talks about all the complications of blood transfusions, and the lack thereof when people went without..

apparently, it hasnt actually been proven that transfusions save lives.. in vietnam war they left people for dead coz they bled too much yet so many survived!

my mum heaomorraged(spelling i know) when I was born and they sed shed die.. went without transfusion and shes still kickin today.. (ahah.. if i give her cheek, literally..)

food for thought anyway..

Re: why give blood?

That looks like a Jehovah's Witness web site. They are against blood transfusions.

Re: why give blood?

In Vietnam they used Super Glue (cyanoacrylate) on wounds, hense why not as many people died from blood loss.

Quote:
In 1964, the Tennessee Eastman lab submitted its first application for new drug approval to the FDA. The military learned of this new glue and became extremely interested in its potential for use in field hospitals. MASH units in Vietnam were overloaded. Many solders were dying from chest and abdominal wounds, despite the best efforts of medics. In 1966 a special surgical team was flown to Vietnam, trained and equipped to use cyanoacrylate adhesive. A quick spray over the wounds stopped bleeding and bought time until conventional surgery could be performed. The possibilities were immediately seized by the medical communities of Europe and the Far East. Meanwhile the FDA changed standards and kept requesting additional data until Eastman was reluctantly forced to withdraw his application

Re: why give blood?

I remember reading somewhere that US soldiers in Vietnam had excellent medical backup, and wounded soldiers recieved relatively prompt attention. This unfortunately caused "aftershock" effects, where the soldier would temporarily survive initial treatment or operation, and then die while they were "recovering".

British soldiers in the Falklands did not recieve such rapid medical response, and had to wait for treatment. Due to this waiting period, the body had time to adapt and go into a long-term survival mode, and then when medical attention was finally recieved, the soldiers had a much higher post-op survival rate.

Sorry but I can't cite this, I have no idea where I read it, it was years ago

I remember reading that one as well, somewhere, or perhaps it was even in a movie

Re: why give blood?

lol that'd be right, I've confused an old movie with what I thought was a documentary

But I swear I read it in an article rather than saw it on TV...

Re: why give blood?

I've used it to hold the caps on my teeth when they fall off.
They last until the dentist can make new ones at least.
