FACTS

SOCIAL AWARENESS

One single donation can be split into three separate parts, helping save or improve the lives of patients. Just three teaspoons of blood can save the life of a premature baby. If you donate blood, you can help in saving lives of many patients.

It is a good idea to check the safety and hygiene standards of the local camps before you sign up. "Make sure that the vials and syringes being used are new and they are not reusing their syringes" The attendants and doctors should be wearing gloves while handling the blood and should dispose of syringes and testing plates immediately after use.

TATHYA

The average red blood cell transfusion is approximately 3 pints.

More than 1 million new people are diagnosed with cancer each year. Many of them will need blood, sometimes daily, during their chemotherapy treatment.

Healthy donor may donate red blood cells every 56 days, or double red cells every 112 days.

If you began donating blood at age 18 and donated every 90 days until you reached 60, you would have donated 30 gallons of blood, potentially helping save more than 500 lives!

MYTHOS

This man's blood has saved 2 million babies

James Christopher Harrison, OAM, also known as the Man with the golden arm, is a blood plasma donor from Australia whose unusual plasma composition has been used to make a treatment for Rhesus disease. He has made over 1000 donations throughout his lifetime, and these donations are estimated to have saved over two million unborn babies from the condition.

Harrison started donating in 1954 and after the first few donations it was discovered that his blood contained unusually strong and persistent antibodies against the D Rh group antigen. The discovery of these antibodies led to the development of immune globulin based products to prevent hemolytic disease of the newborn.
