Not Enough Blood [electronic resource]: Boosting the World's Blood Supply

In Germany, more than 4 million pints of blood are donated annually. Nearly 900,000 more pints per year are required to satisfy the transfusion needs of German hospitals. How will this gap be closed? Blood-economizing measures used by surgeons and some of the research efforts to create synthetic blood are the focus of this program.

Research regarding the effects of the hormone EPO on mice concludes the program.
