Blood transfusion apparatus, American, 1920-1955.

UNITED STATES - OCTOBER 08: A 'Scannell' model blood transfusion kit, made by the MacGregor Instrument Company of Needham, Massachusetts. James Blundell (1790-1877), a British obstetrician, performed the first successful human to human blood transfusion in 1818. Using the patient�s husband as the donor, he took blood from his arm and using a syringe, transfused it to the woman. Between 1825 and 1830, Blundell carried out a further 10 transfusions which he published details of, half of them being successful. The reason for the poor success rate of early transfusions was that the compatability of blood was not then understood. This problem was solved in 1900 when Karl Landsteiner (1868-1943) discovered blood groups. (Photo by SSPL/Getty Images)
