Im really interested in the medical procedures used in ww 2. I think the company aid man had some of the worst duty. I understand what plasma is. Is there a manual online or could someone explain to me the exact prodcedure for giving plasma to the wounded. It was dry, came in crates of six. How was it liquified and then given to the patient.

Blood plasma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hope this helps:)
