NOTE ON BLOOD DONATION

Updated on September 9, 2009

NOTE ON BLOOD DONATION

Human blood is a prime necessity in modern surgery and treatment for certain deseases.  Blood transfusion is needed in many cases and thre is no substitute for human blood.  To meet the increasing demand for this life-saving blood, it is necessary for us all to know that donating blood does no harm to the donor.

A person has approximately 200 to 250 ounces of blood in the body.  To give 10 to 20 ounces will do no harm and this deficiency can be made up in 2 or 3 weeks time.

It can only takes about 41/2 minutes to donate blood and no discomfort is experienced while doing so. Donating blood every three or four months by a personin normal health does not lower resistance to illness and the donor can resume his daily routine.  Any one between the ages of 18 to 55 years in normal helath can be a blood donor.

Every volunteer is first examined by a doctor and only if declared physically fit, will be permitted to give blood.  Blood grouping is done to find out to which group the donor belongs, as the donor’s blood must match the recipient’s blood.  There are four groups –A,B,AB and O.  Group O is the Universal donor and can give blood to any group.  It takes about 20 minutes in all for testing and grouping, and after donating blood, a short rest of 10 to 15 minutes is necessary before going about one’s normal work.

Donating blood is, threfore, harmless any by doing so a precious life may be saved.

      Donating blood in other means is saving a prestigious life. So, come forward to donate blood and motivate the people in your locality and elsewhere whatever efforts you can make for doing this social work by which the deceased patients will remind you for a longer period or say till they are alive. So, please donate blood happily. I am also a blood doner.

      Donating blood is a noble thing to do, but it doesn't come without side effects, which are usually downplayed. Nevertheless, I've had a pretty negative experience the first time I donated blood. Then I decided to learn more about possible side effects and write it all down for others to see. You can read more about it here:
