Albert Hustin (1882-1967) was a Belgian medical doctor. He was the second to successfully practice non-direct blood transfusions with sodium citrate used as an anticoagulant. He added sodium citrate and glucose to the blood to preserve it, and stop it from clotting. Luis Agote, from Argentina, was the first doctor to practice this kind of transfusion.
