Denver Health helps test blood substitute

KUSA TV, July 2, 2008
A national study led by researchers at Denver Health Medical Center has determined that a blood substitute could save lives in emergencies. Denver Health was among 31 trauma centers across the country that participated in the study, which looked at whether a blood substitute called polyheme could help when there's no immediate access to real blood for a transfusion. The problem is common in rural areas because it takes longer for an ambulance to get to a hospital.
