Information About Blood & Blood Donation

About Blood

Blood Cannot be manufactured; It can only come from volunteer donors

Blood is a specialized bodily fluid present in animals whose function is to deliver necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the tissues and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells.

Blood Donation

Blood donation is a simple four-step process:

Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history and mini-physical check up and donation.

Every blood donor is has to undergo medical screening process such as the donor's temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin to ensure it is safe for the donor to give blood.

 

 

Blood Component Donation

Component donation is a specialised way of donating using a cell separator machine.

These machines separate the blood into all its various components: platelets, red cells, plasma & white cells. We take out just what we need and put back into your body what we don’t. Because the large majority of blood components are returned, the donor can safely donate more frequently than every 16 weeks. In some cases, this can be every two weeks.

A component donation is very important as this allows us to collect individual parts of the blood as and when we need them most.

Blood Transfusion

Blood transfusion is the process of receiving blood products into one's circulation intravenously.

Blood transfusion is the process of receiving blood products into one's circulation intravenously. Transfusions are used in a variety of medical conditions to replace lost components of the blood.

Early transfusions used whole blood, but modern medical practice commonly uses only components of the blood, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, clotting factors, and platelets.
