Blood of Grapes, Wine Bottles Shaped Like the Human Heart by Constantin Bolimond.
Now that is very clever. I could see this being a nice thank you gift for a cardiologist or a hematologist. I love the fluid shape and the high contrast used in the design. It really makes for an eye-catching shape that just immediately grabs you and will not let go.

Colorado Blood by F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi.
When a team enters the pitch, every fan wants the players to give their blood, sweat and tears to the club. That’s what inspired Nike for the launching of the new jersey of Sport Club Internacional. Known as Colorado (the red team), the red of its famous jersey was presented inside a blood bag. 
The design of this jersey packaging is vivid, creative, and captivating. The attention to details such as the styrofoam container and the plastic cubes to represent ice make the concept feel even more complete.

Researchers at Edinburgh University of Scotland Develop Artificial Blood

Researchers have announced that they believe the type of artificial blood they are working on could be ready for testing in humans in as little as two or three years. Made from growing stem cells taken from adult human bone marrow, the blood they create would be of the rare type “O-negative” that some 98% of people in need could use. 

They are quick to point out that should this artificial blood work well, it would not be a permanent replacement, and could only serve as a stop-gap measure. However, in the short term, this could really save many lives.

The red blood cell was just drifting around, minding its own business when it’s suddenly murdered from behind! In this case, it is about to get its head lopped off. It is bloody murder!
A passionate hematologist makes an analogy about the effects of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia on erythrocytes as he shows a scanning electron micrograph of an erythrocyte moments away from splitting apart from membrane stress exerted by the fibrin mesh.

Ranking the order of a normal differential count for white blood cells:

  • Neutrophils (60-70%)
  • Lymphocytes (20-40%)
  • Monocytes (3-10%)
  • Eosinophils (1-4%)
  • Basophils (~1%)

Microangiopathic hemolytic anemia.
It is a subgroup of hemolytic anemia or loss of red  blood cells through destruction. It is caused by factors in the small  blood vessels that form a fibrin mesh due to increased activation of the  coagulation system. While it is meant to prevent blood loss, red blood cells  are physically ripped apart by physical trauma as a result of being  snagged in the meshwork laden vessels, appearing as these blood cells fragments or schistocytes. MAHA can lead to capillary thrombosis.
