  19. 19. Your blood could save a baby, a child, a mother, a father, a grandfather or a grandmother. It is a gift we all have inside of us to give to those who are injured, sick, or in need. Those are the best reasons to donate blood. Not everyone can save a life. But you have an opportunity to. Don't waste it.
  20. 20. Who can donate the blood? Donor should be between 18-55 years of age with a weight of 50 kg or above with pulse rate, body temperature and blood pressure should be normal.

Also people who have undergone surgery, blood transfusion may safely donate blood after 6-12 months for woman donors who are pregnant or lactating blood is not taken as their iron reserves are already on the lower side.
  22. 22. How much blood can be taken? Our body has 5.5 litre of blood of which only 350 ml - 450 ml of blood is taken depending upon weight of donor. Majority of healthy adults can tolerate withdrawal of one unit of blood. The withdrawn blood volume is restored within 24 hours and the hemoglobin and cell components are restored in 2 months. Therefore it is safe to donate blood every three months.
  23. 23. Blood Group Compatibility Recipients can receive plasma of the same blood group, but otherwise the donor-recipient compatibility for blood plasma is the converse of that of RBCs:plasma extracted from typeAB blood can be transfused to individuals of any blood group; individuals of blood group O can receive plasma from any blood group; and type O plasma can be used only by type O recipients.
  24. 24. Modern Blood Transfusion: Modern blood transfusion basically deals with the optimal use of one unit of blood. One unit of whole blood is separated into components making it available to different patients according to their requirement. Thus one unit of blood is converted into packed cell volume, fresh frozen plasma, platelet concentrate, cryoprecipitate and granulocytes concentrate before being transfused.
