The FDA has approved trials for a new blood substitute on the public.
But the general public was not told about it. A badly injured person could be randomly selected for use. (An EMT opens an envelope which says yes or
no) To opt out a person needs to wear a special blue braclet, which no one in the general public, knew about.
But this substance is being used in situations where the patient is in severe danger due to massive blood loss, and the current treatment for this
level of blood loss (salt water infusion) is not particularly effective.
Consent would be waved because the subject would probably be incapacitated.
Am I going to blue-bracelet up? No.
