All blood types needed, especially O-, A- and male platelet donors
UNDERSTANDING THE NEED FOR ONGOING BLOOD DONATION
Each year, 4.5 million Americans would die without blood transfusions. Every two seconds, someone needs blood and car accident victims can require red blood cell transfusions of 50 units or more. Children being treated for cancer, premature infants and children having heart surgery need blood and platelets from donors of all types. Some patients with complications from severe sickle cell disease receive blood transfusions every month — up to four units at a time. A patient could also be forced to pass up a lifesaving organ if enough compatible blood is not available to support the transplant.
If people gave blood just one more time each year, shortages could be prevented.
