saturated mess

< Previous | Next >


Hi all!

I'm translating a movie and there's this scene in the O.R. One of the doctors says:

"Guys, we got a saturated mess in here.
How much more do you need?"

I've no idea what he's referring to. But they're extracting bone marrow from the patient who's already shot in the leg. (I don't know if it helps though.)

Could you maybe explain what this "saturated mess" means so that I get what it is and translate it? Cause I don't have a clue.

Thanks in advance.

    Well, they have a mess (shredded body parts, presumably), and it's saturated (totally suffused) with something. The most obvious something would be blood.
