In this article, DeBakey described the use of blood and blood plasma in a range of disease states, and the proper procedure
for collecting, preserving, and administering these fluids. This article (and The Blood Bank, by DeBakey and Kilduffe, published
the same year) reflected the enormous advances made in blood banking during the late 1930s and early 1940s, and their great
importance to military medicine during World War II. (See the Profiles in Science site featuring Dr. Charles Drew for more
on the development of blood banking.)
