Blood retrieval system: A simple, safe and efficient surgical blood retrieval system has been developed at the department of cardio-vascular and thoracic surgery (CVTS) in the Christian Medical College and Hospital. Dr Harinder Singh Bedi, head, CVTS, said the system was developed to help major trauma cases with massive blood loss as there
was no time to make arrangements for blood transfusion. The uncontaminated blood can be sucked and re-transfused into the patient. A closed and sterile airtight system is being used in the machine. This is the
same machine that has been used in a number of open-heart surgeries all over the world. It is safe and non-traumatic.
