Abstract

As is well known, we have in blood, plasma and serum adequate media for the treatment of shock, for example, in cases of serious loss of blood or contusions. During the present War, however, it has proved impossible completely to supply the large requirements of these materials. It is therefore natural that physiologists and chemists are seeking for substances the aqueous solutions of which can replace the expensive and delicate blood or plasma.
