Abstract : The invention relates to blood transfusion fluids such as blood plasma, blood plasma volume extenders, blood substitutes, and the like. To a blood transfusion fluid is added small concentrations of soluble high-polymer material characterized by a generally linear, long chain molecular structure and a molecular weight in excess of 100,000. The concentration of polymer is in the range of 5-100 parts per million by weight (w.p.p.m.).
