Bodily Fluids Behave Differently in Space

Bodily fluids will also behave differently in space and on Mars. The blood in our veins may stick to instruments due to surface tension.

Floating droplets may form streams that could restrict the surgeon’s view- not ideal.

The circulating air of an enclosed cabin may also be an infection risk.

Surgical bubbles and blood-repelling surgical tools could be the solution.

Researchers have already developed + tested various surgical enclosures in microgravity environments. E.g. NASA assessed a closed system comprising a surgical clear plastic overhead canopy with arm ports, to prevent contamination.
