Give Blood. Share Life

No matter where we are from, what colour our skin is, what our religion, the blood that flows in our bodies is the same. Thanks to voluntary blood donors, medical centres all over the world have access to healthy blood products to save millions of lives. The red sachets of blood represent not only the selfless love of the donors, but also the hope of life.

 Standard Blood Donation Procedure:Before donation, evaluations are performed on potential donors before the donation process to ensure their blood is safe to use. The donors are asked to answer questions about their medical and other related history and are required to carry out a basic physical examination to ensure they are fit for donation. The donor’s hemoglobin level is tested to rule our anemia, and their pulse, blood pressure and temperature are checked. In China, donors can donate either 200 or 400 ml of whole blood every 6 months.After the donation process, donors are asked to rest and are observed for about 10–15minutes. Typically, light refreshments are served then. The donor needle site is covered with dressing and the donor may be asked to apply some pressure over this area for a few minutes.Donated plasma is replaced after 48-72 hours whereas Red blood cells are replaced on average in 36 days in healthy adult males. Some minor risks include fainting from changes in blood pressure, bruising, tendon or nerve injury, thrombophlebitis and allergic reactions. However, in a controlled center, these risks are very rare or easily managed.
