Donate Blood and you can HELP to SAVE Many Lives !!!
A blood donation occurs when a person voluntarily has blood drawn and used for transfusions and/or made into biopharmaceutical medications by a process called fractionation (separation of whole-blood components). Donation may be of whole-blood (WB), or of specific components directly (the latter called apheresis). Blood banks often participate in the collection process as well as the procedures that follow it
Donated blood can be separated into several components: red blood cells, plasma, platelets and cryoprecipitate. When it's used in this way, a donated pint of blood can help save up to seven people. If the blood is kept as a whole unit (as opposed to being separated into components), it will help save up to three lives.
