FACTS ABOUT DONORS

The Joy of Saving Human Lives

It is such a wonderful feeling being able to help doctors save human lives. There are no perfect substitutes for human blood. The blood you donate is divided into various components according to the needs of patients. Each component can be used by different recipients for various purposes. Many newborn babies may benefit from a single blood donor as their blood requirements are smaller. Every time you donate blood, you can help up to 3 or 4 individual recipients. Be a hero by donating blood.which is often used in emergencies, for newborns and for patients requiring massive transfusions.

Free Health Check-up

You can donate blood only if you are fit enough to do so. Before every blood donation process, a series of health check-ups are performed on the donor totally free of cost. This will be of great benefit to you. For example, you will come to know of any blood pressure abnormalities. That will help diagnose some of the indolent diseases at the early stage before they get flared up and present with multiple medical problems. Further, after the blood is donated, the blood and blood products that are derived from them are screened for certain infections. You can choose to be informed if they find any abnormality in those screening tests. Frequent blood donations are good free health check-ups that will help you stay healthy.

BEFORE BLOOD DONATION

  1. Maintain a healthy iron level in your diet by eating iron rich foods, such as red meat, fish, poultry, beans, spinach, iron-fortified cereals and raisins.
  2. Get a good night's sleep
  3. Drink an extra 16 oz. of water or nonalcoholic fluids before the donation.
  4. Eat a healthy meal before your donation. Avoid fatty foods, such as hamburgers, fries or ice cream before donating. (Fatty foods can affect the tests we do on your blood. If there is too much fat in your blood, your donation cannot be tested for infectious diseases and the blood will not be used for transfusion.)
  5. If you are a platelet donor, remember that your system must be free of aspirin for two days prior to donation.
  6. Remember to bring your donor card, driver's license or two other forms of ID.

  2. Remove the wrap bandage (if you had one put on your arm) within the next hour.
  3. Keep the strip bandage on for the next several hours.
  4. To avoid a skin rash, clean the area around the strip bandage with soap and water.
  5. Do not do any heavy lifting or vigorous exercise for the rest of the day.
  6. If the needle site starts to bleed, apply pressure to it and raise your arm straight up for about 5-10 minutes or until bleeding stops.
  7. If you experience dizziness or lightheadedness after donation, stop what you are doing and sit down or lie down until you feel better. Avoid performing any activity where fainting may lead to injury for at least 24 hours.
