Abstract

Historical accounts of the earliest experiments in blood transfusion celebratework done in France and England in 1667 to 1668. Less attention has been given to pioneering experiments conducted at the same period in Italy.We review records of the first blood transfusion experiments conducted in 17th century Italy. Using original source documents, we provide details of early experiments focusing on the identity of early researchers, their instruments, and techniques. Accounts of the period describe animal-to-animal, animal-to-human, and human-to-human transfusions.We highlight howtransfusionwas considered a newformof emergency surgery, carried out in order to save patients who could not be cured with traditional therapy of the time.
