Introduction
Attention Getter: On October 1st of 2017 a gunman opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 concertgoers 58 of those concertgoers were killed and 546
people were injured.Many citizens responded not by turning away but by reaching out. And as soon as they heard donations for blood were needed they
drove straight to the blood bank. Each and everyone of those people that donated were heroes saving millions of lives that were injured that tragic night.
Relevance. According to the Miller– Keystone Blood Center 25% or more of us will require blood at–least once in our lifetime. That means that 1 in 4
of us will either live or die depending on if the blood bank has enough blood stored up for us from the donations.
Credibility. Through extensive research and personal experience of giving blood, I have learned how important it is to donate blood. I know some of
you may hate the thought of needles or think that giving blood won't really help. But, please consider what I say and make a better informed decision

Importance of Blood Donation Essay
I want to talk to you about the importance of donating blood. Some of you may know a friend or even a family member who has received blood at
some time. I for one have received blood and I often wonder who took the time to donate it. According to the Journal of American Medical Association,
it is noted that just 1 pint of blood can save three lives.
Why You Should Give
Giving blood does not just benefit recipients. Regardless of age, donating blood offers many benefits for donors. It lets you: time–consuming tests.
Then, it must be used relatively quickly or it will perish–whole blood for instance, according to the American Red Cross, is no longer usable after 42
days. As a result, maintaining an adequate blood supply is a...show more content...

Persuasive Speech On Blood Donation
On January 4th, 2017, you issued an emergency call for blood and platelet donation because the severe winter weather was eating up your blood supply
causing a shortage and once again you issued a statement on July 5th, 2017, saying that, "The decline in summer donations is causing a significant
draw–down of our overall blood supply, and we urgently need people to give now to restock hospital shelves and help save lives," (Mandal). So, if I
am understanding this correctly, the nation is still experiencing a blood shortage? Ok, here's the part that I find funny, there's an entire population that
is able to donate but yet are deferred by your system. Can you guess what that population is? No? Well, it's gay and bisexual men. I guess my...show

First, I want to applaud you on the fact that you came to your senses and changed a lifetime deferral to a mere 12 months of celibacy. See before, if
one was a male who has sex with men you would not be able to donate blood at any point in your life (LGBTQ Donors). Now after several years of
research and data on HIV obtained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the FDA has decided to change the donation policy for
men who have sex with men from, "a lifetime deferral to 12–month deferral is consistent with other selection criteria that are used to safeguard the
blood supply from equivalent risks," (LGBTQ Donors). For those who don't understand what this deferral means, basically it says that as a man
who has sex with men (MSM) you cannot donate blood until 12 months after your most recent sexual contact. Celibacy for an entire year, just to be
able to donate blood. Some people may ask, "But wait, what if I'm in a MSM monogamous relationship, and we both know that we're negative for
HIV?" If you thought the answer was different, you thought wrong. Even in a monogamous relationship you'd still be deferred for 12 months
(LGBTQ Donors). For any situation, one might think of dealing with MSM and blood donation, the Red Cross' answer is usually no. Actually, the
Red Cross provides a pretty clear and concise questions and answers page that has every imaginable

How to Give a Successful Donation of Blood Essay
Blood, that red life fluid involved with the creation of life, it is quite common yet not everybody has enough. As a good citizen, it is your
responsibility to give what others need for life. The Red Cross has regular donation times and travels around to schools, offices, and cities quite often.
Giving blood may be scary for some, but in time this will pass. There are a few things you can do to make your first time giving blood easier on your
mind and body.
Blood is a liquid that is supplemented by what you drink; it stands to reason that if you drink a lot of fluid, you will have a well supplied amount of
blood. Even though donating only takes a pint at a time, it is always wise to drink water all day prior to and all day of donating....show more content...
After you sign in and your turn comes, you will be taken somewhere to answer some questions on a computer. For your first time donating, the Red
Cross will ask you to fill out your information via computer so they have it in their records. These questions are very important to answer truthfully
just like the ones read while signing in and should be treated with the utmost importance. The Red Cross has a privacy policy in place so that you don't
need to worry about any of your personal information falling into the wrong hands.
After the first part of the paperwork is filled out, the Red Cross members that may be administering the tests will need to test your blood for iron
levels. Iron in your blood is important for your body. If you don't have high enough iron content in your blood, you will not be able to donate. The
iron blood test is simple; they start by cleaning one of your fingers with an alcohol disinfecting swab. Then they will use a small device to poke
your cleaned finger with a miniscule needle, and draw a drop or two of blood for testing. They will take your temperature, blood pressure and pulse
and have you verify all the information presented. They will have you complete a form on the computer to assess your possible risks for donating,
you will need to take this small quiz every time your donate, so be ready for

Speech On Blood Donation
The Gift of Life You're always somebody's type. Maybe not in the sense of finding love, but at least in donating blood. When individuals are asked
why they donate blood, their response is simple, it is heartwarming as well as a rewarding feeling. Individuals can donate at blood drives and
hospitals.Donors can either walk in or schedule an appointment. Donating blood is not easy for some people, especially if it is the first time, they may
not know what to expect and they may be nervous. It is phlebotomist or employee at the blood donation center job to make the person feel welcome
and help them overcome any fears they may have.We need as many donors as we can get to try and reach our number for how many pints of blood
are required. Although we have blood banks like Bonfils; which is one of many locations Colorado has for a bigger supply of blood to help us out in
case of an emergency.We simply would not have enough blood for the affected victims because we are short on blood donations; supply and demand
for donation are too high; diagnoses and transportation of blood would take too long.
As we begin, although we are thousands of pints short on blood, we would not be able to help large number of victims in a big emergency, through
more blood donations. If we were in need of lots of blood we would have lots of donors lining up outside blood donor locations to help the cause. For
example, the Las Vegas shooting massacre. Fifty–nine people were confirmed dead and more than

Persuasive Essay On Blood Donation
The American National Red Cross is a humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance and disaster relief to all people of the United
States. It also provides education; training and certification for those who wish too learn and participate in health and safety courses. While many
people have heard of the American Red Cross, not many can actually tell you what it does for our nation. Most think all it does is take your blood, and
send it off when it's needed. I intend to educate and expand the knowledge of what the American Red Cross does with your blood, and how critical it
is to donate.
As a local titleholder and possibly Miss Virginia, I would plan to travel around different areas and places such as schools, or churches to provide
education on how to qualify as a donor and how to sign up. I would also provide easy ways to set up your Red Cross Donor cards, and help people
locate where their nearest donation centers are, and when the next blood drive is in their area. I would encourage people to sign up by talking about
where the blood you donate actually goes. Every human being needs blood, and there is always a shortage. So this is something that affects every
person on the planet.
By using the strategy of "everyone needs and uses blood to live" and explaining where the blood you donate goes, I will change the attitudes of the
people weary of the idea of having someone extract their bodily fluids. When I first donated blood I was curious where it was going, or if they
even were going to use it. Only a few days after my donation I received a card in the mail saying my one pint of blood went on to save three
individuals lives. That was an incredible feeling, and by sharing those feelings and offering proof to those that are doubtful it should change their
attitudes.
Many people undergo fear when they think of the idea of donating their blood. What if I need this pint of blood? What if I pass out? Will it hurt?
Will they even use my blood? What do they do with it? The answers to those are simple. As someone who has donated blood numerous times I can
talk about my fears from when I first donated blood at sixteen years old, and how I defeated those fears myself. I can provide information

Informative Speech On Donating Blood
Introduction
Attention Getter: Imagine someone in your family has just suffered a heart attack and must undergo open–heart surgery in order to repair the damage.
Imagine your best friend who has suffered from leukemia, a disease requiring regular transfusions of platelets. This may not be great images, but
these things happen and unfortunately, some of us may even have experienced them already. Normally, we expect that hospitals have all the facilities
to save the lives of the people but in reality, it may not happen. Seeing people suffering, we also want to do everything in our power to help them and
there is one thing we can do to help them and that is by donating blood. (Cross, 2016)
I.Introduce thesis: Today, I will be discussing about why blood donation is important and try to persuade my audience about taking part in this issue.
II.Credibility: Some individuals requiring blood are surgical patients; burn victims; accident victims; anemics'; hemophiliacs; seriously ill babies and
persons suffering from leukemia, cancer, kidney disease and liver disease. There are many places where people die because of not getting enough
blood or not finding blood that matches their blood group (Bendixen, 1996).
III.Preview: Today, I will be discussing some facts about blood and how we can help people by donating blood and how it can solve problems.
Transition: It is estimate that in the United States, every three seconds a patient needs blood and that is a lot of blood.
Body
I.Facts about the blood.
1.The blood supply in the US is consistently low and the demand of blood is increasing every year. As most of the blood needs to come from the
healthy donors, yet only 5% of US population, who are eligible donates blood in any given year. Blood cannot be made or harvest, and there is no
substitute for it. (Cross, 2016)
2.The supply of red blood cells (the most used blood component) barely serves the growing demand. (Charbonneau, 2013) Currently more than
4,000 gallons of red blood cells are use in the US every day and it is still increasing. It is also estimate that 85% of us will need blood transfusion in
some part of our lives. (Bendixen, 1996)

The Pros And Cons Of Donating Blood Donors
The major barrier in donating blood among the respondents is the health status of the person. Since passing the medical and physical examinations are
extremely important in qualifying as a donor, it is therefore necessary to have a good lifestyle and a good status of health without any trace of illnesses
that can be transmittable. Most of the illnesses frequently mentioned and diagnosed in the respondents were: (1) high blood pressure; (2) cough and
colds; (3) anaemia; (4) diabetes and (5) those illnesses which needs maintenance drugs. During the focus group discussion, the respondents have
expressed high interest in becoming a donor even if they were already diagnosed with an illness beforehand they still try to go to the blood donation
activity...show more content...
These are specifically (1) fear (termed as 'kahadlok' in Bisayan dialect) of needles, (2) lack of required conditions to donate e.g. in weight, in blood
pressure, in haemoglobin level, and in sleep, (3) lack of post–donation care, (4) the sight of blood, and even (5) developing anaemia. The fear of
needles of the respondents, mostly non–blood donors, points to the length of the needle and the depth of the needle in the veni–puncture site. On the
other hand, blood donors choose their medical laboratory technicians or medical practitioners that facilitate the veni–puncture to them as they have
experienced inaccurate punctures that result to painful bruises on the arm. Lack of the required conditions to donate is also one of the major barriers
in blood donation between the two communities. They have stated particularly that weight that has to be at least 50 kilograms, blood pressure has to
have a systolic reading between 90 mmHg and 180 mmHg, and diastolic reading between 50 mmHg and 100 mmHg, haemoglobin level that requires
being at least 12.0 gm% and had at least 5 hours of sleep the night before. The qualities stated can be assessed and validated through a series of
examinations done by the medical practitioners during the blood donation activity. An example is the haemoglobin level; this can be assessed through
pricking the finger of the interested donor to extract blood and determine if the blood

Donating Blood
Just imagine if one of your brothers or sisters was born with a heart defect and had to have daily transfusions of blood in order to have a chance of
survival. Unfortunately, things happen like this everyday and some of you may have experienced them already. In this essay I am going to persuade
you to become a blood donor. I try to donate blood every two months or so because it makes me feel like I am doing something good and saving
people's lives. Do you know that 95% of all Americans will need a blood transfusion sometime in our lives (Red Cross web site)? That statistic means
that there is a possibility that you, and your family and friends could need support from volunteer blood donors. In this essay I will discuss the need for
blood donations, solutions that can increase blood donations, and actions that need to be taken to increase blood donations.
The need for blood is growing more everyday while the numbers of donors is decreasing. Sickle cell disease affects more than 70,000 people in
the U.S. About 1,000 babies are born with the disease each year. Sickle cell patients can require frequent blood transfusions throughout their lives
(RedCrossBlood.org). According to the Red Cross blood website 41,000 pints of blood are needed every single day, and they need us to make that
possible. Donating blood is a safe process that is done with a sterile needle used only one time for each donor. There is a four–step process to donating
blood. First, is the

Title: MORE PEOPLE SHOULD DONATE BLOOD.

A. Attention Getter: How many people have donated blood before? Does anybody know how many people can be saved by one donation? One
donation can help save the lives of up to three people and since blood is an essential substance that cannot be manufactured, It can only come from
volunteer donors (RedCrossBlood.org.,2013)
B. Tie to Audience: Many people feel scared when they see needles and most of us think about the pain in the donating process; however, all of us
could have the power to save lives and it only takes 10–12 minutes. (RedCrossBlood.org.,2013)

Type O blood is safe for almost everyone. About 40 percent of the population has type O blood. People who have thisblood type are called universal
donors. Type O blood is used for emergencies when there's no time to test a person's blood type. People who have type AB blood are called universal
recipients. This means they can get any type of blood (nhlbi.nih.gov).
B. Blood Donation: It is a voluntary procedure. Someone agrees to have blood drawn so that it can be given to someone who needs a blood
transfusion. Millions of people need blood transfusions each year. Some may need blood during surgery. Others depend on it after an accident or
because they have a disease that requires blood components. Blood donation makes all of this possible (National Library of Medicine)
C. Blood Donation Process
Donating blood is a safe process. A sterile needle is used only once for each donor and then discarded. Blood donation is a simple four–step process:
Registration
You will complete donor registration, which includes information such as your name, address, phone number, and donor identification number if the
person has one. You will be asked to show a donor card, driver's license or two other forms of ID.

Importance Of Blood Donation Essay
Blood Donation: What You Need to Know
For those in the medical industry, the possibility of saving someone's life is a very real possibility. For the rest of us, we assume heroes and life savers
are left for televisions and the big screens. Not anymore. It's time we celebrate those everyday heroes that selflessly go above and beyond to make a
difference.
The fact is, saving someone's life may involve sitting and relaxing in comfort and can take less than an hour. Saving a life is making the decision to
donate blood.
Why donate?
Current statistics have found that 1 in 3 Australians will require blood at some point in their life. Those are some worrying figures– especially
considering that only 1 in 30 people in Australia will choose to donate.
For those who do donate, they have an opportunity to change or save the lives of 3 people, all from one simple donation.
What can you donate?
Donors have a choice of 3 different donations: whole blood, plasma and platelets. Your blood type will help determine which option may be best for
you, and it's important to keep in mind that you need to have donated whole blood in the last two years in order to start donating plasma or platelets.
The process times vary slightly depending on the type of donation you choose: whole blood takes 15 minutes to donate and 45 minutes for the
appointment, plasma and platelets take 45 minutes to donate and an hour and a half for the appointment.
How does it work?

What do they say about donating blood? It's the "gift that keeps on giving?" Well, research has added another feather into its cap when it comes to
donating blood: not only is it good for your local community blood supply, but it's good for your own as well. That's according to a new study
published by the American Medical Association (www.ama–assn.org), that found that giving blood every six months led to fewer heart attacks and
strokes in test participants ages 43 to 61.
According to www.bloodcenters.org, excessive iron is thought to contribute to heart disease, especially at its early stages. Donating blood on a
regular basis reduces the iron stores in the body and this study supports the theory that reducing iron appears to preserve heart and vascular
health.What a win/win situation, huh? Give blood to someone who needs it and do your own body good at the same time. What's more, regular
blood donations may help keep the body's circulatory system healthy by reducing stores of iron, but the effect may not work for older people. The
site www.thatsfit.com points out that over a period of six years, researchers examined more than 1,200 men and women, aged 43 to 87, who had

The Importance of Donating Blood
The birth of Chase changed our lives forever. We were not sure if we were able to have children and after 5 years of trying with not avail, Chase was
born. He was 5 lbs. and 8 oz. He was so tiny and fragile, but the love we had for our son was enormous. When Chase turned five months old, the
doctors told us that he had leukemia. They said it would take a miracle for him to see his 1st birthday. We as parents did not know what to do or who
to turn for to help and guide us in the right directions. Chase would undergo many surgeries and need many pints of blood. It is often that people do
not understand why donating blood is important part of life. What if Chase was your 5–month–old son?

Blood is a liquid that circulates throughout the body, carrying oxygen and nutrients to every cell, and carrying away waste products. Blood plays an
important role in fighting off unwanted infections that enter the body. The components of blood are red and white blood cells, platelets and plasma.
Although blood is made of the same basic elements, not all blood is alike. In fact, there are eight common red blood cell types, A+, A–, B+, B–, AB+,
AB–, O+, O–. Type O blood is a universal donor and is always in demand, because of these different types of blood variations it is of great importance
that everyone who can, donate. There are four common types of blood donations, in which you can participate. (American Association of Blood Banks)
The most common type of donating is whole blood, which is always in need. This procedure last for about 45 minutes. There are trained people
collecting your blood, and are very cautious and safe. The way that they collected your blood is that they ask you several questions to determine your
eligibility. You then receive your own collections bags and needle. At no time do you have to worry about confused with someone else, or catching
any diseases. You can call your local area Red Cross Center (www.bloodct.org/blood.htm) or hospital to find out when and where donations are given.

Thesis: People should donate blood, it helps saves lives through a relatively simple and painless process that provides numerous benefits to the donor. Claim: Value Organizational Pattern: Motivated sequence Introduction Attention Getter: On October 1st of 2017 a gunman opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 concertgoers 58 of those concertgoers were killed and 546 people were injured.Many citizens responded not by turning away but by reaching out.

Each and everyone of those people that donated were heroes saving millions of lives that were injured that tragic night. Relevance.

That means that 1 in 4 of us will either live or die depending on if the blood bank has enough blood stored up for us from the donations. Credibility.

Persuasive Speech On Blood Donation On January 4th, 2017, you issued an emergency call for blood and platelet donation because the severe winter weather was eating up your blood supply causing a shortage and once again you issued a statement on July 5th, 2017, saying that, "The decline in summer donations is causing a significant draw–down of our overall blood supply, and we urgently need people to give now to restock hospital shelves and help save lives," (Mandal). So, if I am understanding this correctly, the nation is still experiencing a blood shortage? Ok, here's the part that I find funny, there's an entire population that is able to donate but yet are deferred by your system. Can you guess what that population is? No? Well, it's gay and bisexual men. I guess my...show more content... First, I want to applaud you on the fact that you came to your senses and changed a lifetime deferral to a mere 12 months of celibacy. See before, if one was a male who has sex with men you would not be able to donate blood at any point in your life (LGBTQ Donors). Now after several years of research and data on HIV obtained by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the FDA has decided to change the donation policy for men who have sex with men from, "a lifetime deferral to 12–month deferral is consistent with other selection criteria that are used to safeguard the blood supply from equivalent risks," (LGBTQ Donors). For those who don't understand what this deferral means, basically it says that as a man who has sex with men (MSM) you cannot donate blood until 12 months after your most recent sexual contact. Celibacy for an entire year, just to be able to donate blood. Some people may ask, "But wait, what if I'm in a MSM monogamous relationship, and we both know that we're negative for HIV?" If you thought the answer was different, you thought wrong. Even in a monogamous relationship you'd still be deferred for 12 months (LGBTQ Donors). For any situation, one might think of dealing with MSM and blood donation, the Red Cross' answer is usually no.

As a good citizen, it is your responsibility to give what others need for life. The Red Cross has regular donation times and travels around to schools, offices, and cities quite often. Giving blood may be scary for some, but in time this will pass. There are a few things you can do to make your first time giving blood easier on your mind and body. Blood is a liquid that is supplemented by what you drink; it stands to reason that if you drink a lot of fluid, you will have a well supplied amount of blood.

After you sign in and your turn comes, you will be taken somewhere to answer some questions on a computer. For your first time donating, the Red Cross will ask you to fill out your information via computer so they have it in their records. These questions are very important to answer truthfully just like the ones read while signing in and should be treated with the utmost importance. The Red Cross has a privacy policy in place so that you don't need to worry about any of your personal information falling into the wrong hands. After the first part of the paperwork is filled out, the Red Cross members that may be administering the tests will need to test your blood for iron levels. Iron in your blood is important for your body. If you don't have high enough iron content in your blood, you will not be able to donate. The iron blood test is simple; they start by cleaning one of your fingers with an alcohol disinfecting swab. Then they will use a small device to poke your cleaned finger with a miniscule needle, and draw a drop or two of blood for testing. They will take your temperature, blood pressure and pulse and have you verify all the information presented.

  • 8. Speech On Blood Donation The Gift of Life You're always somebody's type. Maybe not in the sense of finding love, but at least in donating blood. When individuals are asked why they donate blood, their response is simple, it is heartwarming as well as a rewarding feeling. Individuals can donate at blood drives and hospitals.Donors can either walk in or schedule an appointment. Donating blood is not easy for some people, especially if it is the first time, they may not know what to expect and they may be nervous. It is phlebotomist or employee at the blood donation center job to make the person feel welcome and help them overcome any fears they may have.We need as many donors as we can get to try and reach our number for how many pints of blood are required. Although we have blood banks like Bonfils; which is one of many locations Colorado has for a bigger supply of blood to help us out in case of an emergency.We simply would not have enough blood for the affected victims because we are short on blood donations; supply and demand for donation are too high; diagnoses and transportation of blood would take too long. As we begin, although we are thousands of pints short on blood, we would not be able to help large number of victims in a big emergency, through more blood donations. If we were in need of lots of blood we would have lots of donors lining up outside blood donor locations to help the cause. For example, the Las Vegas shooting massacre.

  • 9. Persuasive Essay On Blood Donation The American National Red Cross is a humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance and disaster relief to all people of the United States. It also provides education; training and certification for those who wish too learn and participate in health and safety courses. While many people have heard of the American Red Cross, not many can actually tell you what it does for our nation. Most think all it does is take your blood, and send it off when it's needed. I intend to educate and expand the knowledge of what the American Red Cross does with your blood, and how critical it is to donate. As a local titleholder and possibly Miss Virginia, I would plan to travel around different areas and places such as schools, or churches to provide education on how to qualify as a donor and how to sign up. I would also provide easy ways to set up your Red Cross Donor cards, and help people locate where their nearest donation centers are, and when the next blood drive is in their area. I would encourage people to sign up by talking about where the blood you donate actually goes. Every human being needs blood, and there is always a shortage. So this is something that affects every person on the planet. By using the strategy of "everyone needs and uses blood to live" and explaining where the blood you donate goes, I will change the attitudes of the people weary of the idea of having someone extract their bodily fluids. When I first donated blood I was curious where it was going, or if they even were going to use it. Only a few days after my donation I received a card in the mail saying my one pint of blood went on to save three individuals lives. That was an incredible feeling, and by sharing those feelings and offering proof to those that are doubtful it should change their attitudes. Many people undergo fear when they think of the idea of donating their blood. What if I need this pint of blood? What if I pass out? Will it hurt? Will they even use my blood? What do they do with it? The answers to those are simple. As someone who has donated blood numerous times I can talk about my fears from when I first donated blood at sixteen years old, and how I defeated those fears myself. I can provide information Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 10. Informative Speech On Donating Blood Introduction Attention Getter: Imagine someone in your family has just suffered a heart attack and must undergo open–heart surgery in order to repair the damage. Imagine your best friend who has suffered from leukemia, a disease requiring regular transfusions of platelets. This may not be great images, but these things happen and unfortunately, some of us may even have experienced them already. Normally, we expect that hospitals have all the facilities to save the lives of the people but in reality, it may not happen. Seeing people suffering, we also want to do everything in our power to help them and there is one thing we can do to help them and that is by donating blood. (Cross, 2016) I.Introduce thesis: Today, I will be discussing about why blood donation is important and try to persuade my audience about taking part in this issue. II.Credibility: Some individuals requiring blood are surgical patients; burn victims; accident victims; anemics'; hemophiliacs; seriously ill babies and persons suffering from leukemia, cancer, kidney disease and liver disease. There are many places where people die because of not getting enough blood or not finding blood that matches their blood group (Bendixen, 1996). III.Preview: Today, I will be discussing some facts about blood and how we can help people by donating blood and how it can solve problems. Transition: It is estimate that in the United States, every three seconds a patient needs blood and that is a lot of blood. Body I.Facts about the blood. 1.The blood supply in the US is consistently low and the demand of blood is increasing every year. As most of the blood needs to come from the healthy donors, yet only 5% of US population, who are eligible donates blood in any given year. Blood cannot be made or harvest, and there is no substitute for it. (Cross, 2016) 2.The supply of red blood cells (the most used blood component) barely serves the growing demand. (Charbonneau, 2013) Currently more than 4,000 gallons of red blood cells are use in the US every day and it is still increasing. It is also estimate that 85% of us will need blood transfusion in some part of our lives.

  • 11. The Pros And Cons Of Donating Blood Donors The major barrier in donating blood among the respondents is the health status of the person. Since passing the medical and physical examinations are extremely important in qualifying as a donor, it is therefore necessary to have a good lifestyle and a good status of health without any trace of illnesses that can be transmittable. Most of the illnesses frequently mentioned and diagnosed in the respondents were: (1) high blood pressure; (2) cough and colds; (3) anaemia; (4) diabetes and (5) those illnesses which needs maintenance drugs. During the focus group discussion, the respondents have expressed high interest in becoming a donor even if they were already diagnosed with an illness beforehand they still try to go to the blood donation activity...show more content... These are specifically (1) fear (termed as 'kahadlok' in Bisayan dialect) of needles, (2) lack of required conditions to donate e.g. in weight, in blood pressure, in haemoglobin level, and in sleep, (3) lack of post–donation care, (4) the sight of blood, and even (5) developing anaemia. The fear of needles of the respondents, mostly non–blood donors, points to the length of the needle and the depth of the needle in the veni–puncture site. On the other hand, blood donors choose their medical laboratory technicians or medical practitioners that facilitate the veni–puncture to them as they have experienced inaccurate punctures that result to painful bruises on the arm. Lack of the required conditions to donate is also one of the major barriers in blood donation between the two communities. They have stated particularly that weight that has to be at least 50 kilograms, blood pressure has to have a systolic reading between 90 mmHg and 180 mmHg, and diastolic reading between 50 mmHg and 100 mmHg, haemoglobin level that requires being at least 12.0 gm% and had at least 5 hours of sleep the night before. The qualities stated can be assessed and validated through a series of examinations done by the medical practitioners during the blood donation activity. An example is the haemoglobin level; this can be assessed through pricking the finger of the interested donor to extract blood and determine if the blood Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 12. Persuasive Speech On Blood Donations Donating Blood Just imagine if one of your brothers or sisters was born with a heart defect and had to have daily transfusions of blood in order to have a chance of survival. Unfortunately, things happen like this everyday and some of you may have experienced them already. In this essay I am going to persuade you to become a blood donor.

For the rest of us, we assume heroes and life savers are left for televisions and the big screens. Not anymore. It's time we celebrate those everyday heroes that selflessly go above and beyond to make a difference. The fact is, saving someone's life may involve sitting and relaxing in comfort and can take less than an hour. Saving a life is making the decision to donate blood. Why donate? Current statistics have found that 1 in 3 Australians will require blood at some point in their life. Those are some worrying figures– especially considering that only 1 in 30 people in Australia will choose to donate. For those who do donate, they have an opportunity to change or save the lives of 3 people, all from one simple donation. What can you donate? Donors have a choice of 3 different donations: whole blood, plasma and platelets. Your blood type will help determine which option may be best for you, and it's important to keep in mind that you need to have donated whole blood in the last two years in order to start donating plasma or platelets.

But one needle I'll gladly put up with when stuck in my arm is the one that is offered up by the American Red Cross (www.redcross.org) during their bi–monthly blood drives. What do they say about donating blood? It's the "gift that keeps on giving?" Well, research has added another feather into its cap when it comes to donating blood: not only is it good for your local community blood supply, but it's good for your own as well. That's according to a new study published by the American Medical Association (www.ama–assn.org), that found that giving blood every six months led to fewer heart attacks and strokes in test participants ages 43 to 61. According to www.bloodcenters.org, excessive iron is thought to contribute to heart disease, especially at its early stages. Donating blood on a regular basis reduces the iron stores in the body and this study supports the theory that reducing iron appears to preserve heart and vascular health.What a win/win situation, huh? Give blood to someone who needs it and do your own body good at the same time. What's more, regular blood donations may help keep the body's circulatory system healthy by reducing stores of iron, but the effect may not work for older people. The site www.thatsfit.com points out that over a period of six years, researchers examined more than 1,200 men and women, aged 43 to 87, who had
