Early plasma protein recovery after total volume plasmapheresis in baboons

      Thirteen baboons were subjected to hypothermic and asanguineous total body perfusion and to replacement with packed, human, red blood cells. In effect, this was a rapid plasmapheresis of approximately 90 percent of the blood volume. Plasma protein refill progressed rapidly with replacement of up to 49 percent in one hour. The protein flow via the thoracic duct was inadequate to account for this rapid refill.
