#Blood substitutes have been developed for almost a century. The various type of artificial blood was continuously available on the market. The theme of this report is to identify the best substitute in emergency situation for some patients and science students. The definition of best is given; thus, as the vital part of the report, the comparison between them is described and discussed. Modified hemoglobin, bovine-based hemoglobin and PFCs are three basic types. In terms of the performance and principle, these three substitutes can be broken down into two approaches. To identify the abilities of each substitute per se, natural blood working routine is presented as the initial contrastive object. The description of two approaches is given. The first approach, hemoglobin methods, is akin to the natural blood (from donors). The second approach, chemical methods, is to develop a total man-made compound, which is able to carry large volume of oxygen to body. The comparison between them is illustrated in form of table. The parameters we collected represented a general idea of difference. Corresponding to the comparison table, the best substitute is argued in different situation in discussion. The improvement and innovative substitutes is introduced in prospects section within the discussion.
