All I have - part 3 - page 15
Bleeding was part of the official medicine back then, it was believed that bleeding someone might cure lots of stuff and relieve fever.
They didn't know much about blood circulation (nor did they expect that blood would circulate around the body and transport... stuff!!!).
So the first writings about the circulatury system came out only a few years before this story takes place and transfusion is something very experimental and up until that moment... unsuccessful - basically the patient always died.
That's because they had no idea that blood types existed either.
Also... they used animals as donors.
It was a mess!
