All About Plasma (Blood Plasma)
Blood is thicker than water – and so is plasma! This critical component of blood plays an important role in maintaining your health.
- Fun gift idea for medical professionals
- The educational item for transfusion patients
FACTS: Plasma is the pale liquid that makes up about 55% of your blood. The other blood components – red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets – are suspended in plasma, and it allows them to travel through the blood vessels and around your body!
But plasma is more than just a passive transportation system for blood cells. Plasma itself plays a critical role in carrying waste products to the kidneys, liver, and lungs where they can be removed from the body. Plasma also helps maintain normal blood pressure and helps regulate the body’s temperature.
While plasma is about 93% water, it contains a myriad of important substances such as clotting factors and proteins, lipids and hormones, enzymes and antibodies, vitamins and minerals, sugars and salts and fats.
Needless to say, these are all critical components. But amazingly, if the water is removed, it is possible to preserve the residue and then re-hydrate it later using distilled water, a technique developed during World War II to aid soldiers. Plasma can also be frozen solid and kept for nearly a decade before use!
Because plasma can be readily preserved, blood banks keep plenty on reserve for medical transfusions. But fresh supplies are always needed, particularly of the AB-type which is universal and can be received by anyone.
So be thankful for your wondrous water of life – and think about passing some along!
Got this as a stocking topper for my daughter for Christmas and I think it will be perfect! It’s super cute and soft. It’s about 5.5-6” long and around 2-3” tall.

I was a little skeptical at first because I had never heard of this business but their prices were way better than most others and their inventory was better as well. I am glad that I decided to do business with them because I was kept well informed of my order, the order arrived very quickly and everything went like clockwork. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Big for my Barbie’s, small for American girls. But very well made and in great condition.
