Oxycyte is the new blood. The man made compound carried oxygen 50x better than blood. This means that you'll be more likely to survive a traumatic brain injury, which is the leading cause of accidental death.

Implications - Known as "artificial blood," Oxycyte provides an ending to the quest for a human blood alternative. In the 19th century, doctors tried a variety of methods to help replenish serious blood loss. One of those methods included using milk. Needless to say, it didn't work out so well. Oxcyte could be a functional alternative to donated blood used for transfusions and during surgery. It's amazing what science has been able to discover in such a short time!
