University, LDS Hospitals Ready to Enroll Patients in Study of New Blood Substitute for Trauma Patients. Treatment to Begin at Scene of Injury.

I haven’t seen this product in the field, yet. I have talked to a few trauma surgeons who state that of all the blood substitutes they have ever seen this one has the most potential. It doesn't need to be refrigerated and it NOT blood type specific. If it works it could be the end of Kool-Aid, if you catch my drift.

I will let you know what the guys on the street are saying.

Thanks, Chris
