Scope note: Sustancias que, cuando se introducen en la corriente sanguínea, pueden transportar oxígeno hacia los tejidos y dióxido de carbono desde estos. Se utilizan para reemplazar la hemoglobina en hemorragias graves y también para perfundir órganos aislados. Los más conocidos son las emulsiones de perfluorocarbono y diversas soluciones de hemoglobina..
