Blood Supply and Donation

Help mitigate the shortage of blood…

Every 2 seconds someone in India requires blood and yet blood is perennially in short supply. Therefore, there cannot be a nobler activity than donating blood as a voluntary donor. Blood transfusion is a critical need for accident victims, trauma victims, premature babies, patients undergoing surgery etc. Every year India requires about 5 Crore units of blood, whereas only a meager 2.5 Crore units of blood are available.

You can donate blood by going to the nearest Blood Bank and donating blood as a voluntary donor. List of all important Blood Banks can be found below. Most of them are walk-in blood donation facilities. The Blood Banks also have mobile vans to which reach out to blood donors.

Blood donation drives and camps are organised in all cities regularly and especially on days like 1st October (National Voluntary Blood Donor Day), 15th August (Independence Day), 26th January (Republic Day) etc. Further, you can also register as a donor on online portals who call you to donate blood when an urgent need arises in your area.

How do you go about donating blood?

Any healthy adult weighing more than 50 kg can donate blood. The plasma part of the blood gets replaced in 48 hours, whereas red blood cells are fully replenished in 6 to 8 weeks. Hence it is a misconception that blood donation leads to weakness. However, once a person donates blood, he or she cannot do it again for the next 3 months.

You must abstain from alcohol and smoking for 48 hours before donating. You should not have suffered from any transmittable diseases in the recent past.  You should not be taking any medication presently and must not have had surgery in the last 6 months. You need to be free from medical conditions like hypertension, cardiac problems, venereal diseases, AIDS etc.

The blood donation may be done at any hospital, clinic or at an outdoor blood donation camp. To begin with, you will be asked about your medical history following which vital parameters like blood pressure, hemoglobin, temperature etc will be measured. 

You will be made to lie down, the area of the arm will be cleansed and a disposable needle will be inserted to draw the blood. The blood collects in a bag and after about 1 pint of blood is collected in about 10 minutes, the process is over. The area of the arm is bandaged and after relaxing for 15 minutes you are free to leave.
