Is Blood a drug?


Blood transfusion is resorted to whenever the patient is in need .Though it is not designated as medicine,i it saves the patient from eventuality by subserving  with medicinal effects.


Blood is not a drug.  A drug is a substance used as a medicine (for correction process).  But blood is used for supporting the life, it is not used for any correction as medicine is used.


Clause IV in Archana mam's info talks about 'devices' - blood cannot be classified as a device either. (something instrumental / mechanical)
