Importance of blood donation

  1. 1. Blood Donation Camp A Humble Initiative of Dan Mitra Mandal (DMM) to Save Lives Dan Mitra Mandal (DMM) Bopal – Ahmedabad.
  2. 2. Importance of Blood donation Blood can be defined as the fluid we have in our bodies that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. It also carries waste to be eliminated from the body. We have between 4 and 6 liters of blood in our adult bodies depending on size. Millions of people will need blood this year. There are tens of thousands of pints of blood that are needed every day to help people.
  3. 3. Importance of blood donation Some of the reasons people need blood transfusions are: Accidents Cancer Sickle Cell Premature birth Surgery
  4. 4. Importance of blood donation Almost all serious health issues use blood donated by people like you and me to save lives. Blood that is donated last a little more than 40 days. Then it must be disposed of. That means we need to constantly replenish the blood so it is there when someone needs it. Your blood could save a baby, a child, a mother, a father, a grandfather or a grandmother. One cannot make blood, 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. Dont waste it.
  5. 5. Importance of blood donation Blood is a liquid connective tissue that maintains the life process by continuous circulation. It travels about 100,000 miles in just few hours. Blood cells originate in bone marrows. Bone marrow is the soft and spongy material in the centre of the bone.
  6. 6. Importance of blood donation Blood contains cells called the erythrocytes (RBC), leucocytes (WBC) and platelets suspended in a straw coloured fluid called the plasma. The primary function of RBC is to transport oxygen and carbon dioxide. They are characterized by the presence of haemoglobin (Hgb), an iron containing protein.
  7. 7. Importance of blood donation The white blood cells (WBC) fight against bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infections. The platelets are responsible for blood clotting.
  8. 8. 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. Both men and women can donate. There are only few conditions in which donors are permanently excluded. The donor with history of epilepsy, psychotic disorders, abnormal bleeding tendencies, severe asthma, cardiovascular disorders, malignancy are permanently unfit for blood donation.
  9. 9. Who can donate the blood? Donors suffering from disease like hepatitis, malaria, measles, mumps, and syphilis may donate blood after full recovery with 3-6 months gap. Also people who have undergone surgery, blood transfusion may safely donate blood after 6-12 mths for woman donors who are pregnant or lactating blood is not taken as their iron reserves are already on the lower side.
  10. 10. 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.
  11. 11. What is done with the blood collected? The blood collected in sterile, pyrogen free containers with anticoagulants like CPDA or CPDA with SAGM. This prevents clotting and provides nutrition for the cells. This blood is stored at 2-6 C or -20 C depending on the component prepared. Donated blood undergoes various tests like blood grouping antibody detection, testing of infections like hepatitis, AIDS, Malaria, syphilis and before it reaches the recipient it undergoes compatibility testing with the recipient blood.
  12. 12. 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. Another important practice is apheresis.
  13. 13. Modern Blood Transfusion: This is separation of only desired component from the donor and return the remaining constituent back to donor. This technique is also used for remaining pathological substance in patients. Withdrawal of blood for transfusion is regarded as a safe procedure now and blood donor has emerged as the single most vital link.
  14. 14. Myths about blood donation Blood donation is one of the noblest works.
