How often can I donate blood?

You must wait at least eight weeks (56 days) between donations of whole blood and 16 weeks (112 days) between double red cell donations. Platelet apheresis donors may give every 7 days up to 24 times per year. Regulations are different for those giving blood for themselves.

Is it safe to give blood?

Donating blood is a safe process. Each donor’s blood is collected through a new, sterile needle that is used once and then discarded. Although most people feel fine after donating blood, a small number of people may feel light headed or dizzy, have an upset stomach or experience a bruise or pain where the needle was inserted. Extremely rarely, loss of consciousness, nerve damage or artery damage occur.

Whom should I contact for blood donation?

Contact the nearest blood bank or blood transfusion department of any major hospital in your town. There are a lot of blood bank's you may find in your city. This information is easily available in telephone directories and over internet. Also please register to this site to get connected to the nearby donors if you need blood urgently, or you may also donate blood to the needy.

Why are there often blood shortages?

Blood supplies may vary depending on the region and time of year. As donor qualifications continue to become stricter and as the donor population ages, our nation is at risk of a low blood supply. If you are eligible, your blood donations are needed. Most blood centers strive to maintain an optimum inventory level of a three-day supply. Due to unpredictable demands from trauma incidents the inventory fluctuates hourly. When the blood supply drops below a three-day level, blood centers begin alerting local donors to increase the inventory to a safe operating level.

Why should we donate blood?

Safe blood saves lives and improves health. Blood transfusion is needed for:

  1. Women with complications of pregnancy, such as ectopic pregnancies and haemorrhage before, during or after childbirth.

  2. Children with severe anaemia often resulting from malaria or malnutrition.

  3. People with severe trauma following man-made and natural disasters.

  4. Many complex medical and surgical procedures and cancer patients.

It is also needed for regular transfusions for people with conditions such as thalassaemia and sickle cell disease and is used to make products such as clotting factors for people with haemophilia.

There is a constant need for regular blood supply because blood can be stored for only a limited time before use. Regular blood donations by a sufficient number of healthy people are needed to ensure that safe blood will be available whenever and wherever it is needed.

Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.
