6. Blood transfusion Transfusing animal blood In 1628, Harvey had shown that the blood circulated around the body. Even the harshest sceptics of his theories admitted defeat when Malpighi showed the existence of the capillaries that linked arteries and veins. Yet removing, not adding, blood was still the main medical procedure in the immediate centuries after Harvey. While this seems strange to our modern world-view, it made sense both practically and theoretically to the Renaissance mind. Practically, it is easy to remove blood, at least as long as you know how to close the wound. However, adding blood requires more
