  • Bloodless Medicine Research: "Bloodless medicine" is a modern field of research which studies the available strategies for providing medical care without allogeneic transfusions. In most cases this is undertaken because of religious convictions, but not always.  Any technological improvement, as well as any therapeutic strategy, that permit the avoidance of  the allogeneic blood, have to be carefully followed in the universities. Our site propose to coordinate research in this field.
  • Bloodless Medicine and Surgery Institute (BMSI): A private, educational institute founded in 1997 in Cleveland, Ohio by nationally recognized leaders in the bloodless field. Through our research, we continually develop new standards for applying bloodless medical techniques. Through our education efforts we are protecting patients and their caregivers with regard to the use of blood and blood products.
