Wouldn't they swim in random directions? But the idea is very cool. Wait,
doesn't blood also do some work with temperature stabilization, which would

You might be able to attach a redundant heart, I don't know, in your leg?

Could you replace the plasma with some kind of oxygenated gel like we see in
