One of the most perplexing problems to hospitals and to the medical profession is the difficulty of securing blood for transfusions in sufficient quantities at all times and at a cost within the reach of people of limited means who need it.
Under existing conditions the procedure of transfusion is available for use only when the patient is able to pay for a donor, or when a voluntary donor is available, or when the cost can be met from charitable funds. Not infrequently none of these avenues are open and a patient urgently needing transfusion must do without.
