Feeling Great when Blood2all.org made it Possible

Last evening, a news broke out in my office that one of my senior colleagues was suffering from Dengue, had severe loss of platelets, was admitted to hospital and was in urgent requirement of A+ Blood Platelets. The hospital in which he was admitted asked for an immediate donor. “Immediate” meant an hour! Rain God was on full mood that evening! Somebody reaching the Hospital from a distant place in next one hour amidst the rain and beautiful Bangalore traffic was tough. Panic broke out in my office. HR opened the list of employees to find out a donor within the Company. Some started asking out their relatives and friends. Some started finding from online blood donors group. I called my relative Kishore Patwardhan, who runs a non-profit organization called Blood2all.org. Minutes later, calls started pouring in! My colleagues relative’s maid said she was ready to donate. Another colleague’s friend’s Boss said a yes. 2 other people called in through blood2all. A colleague’s fr ... [more]

Apheresis or Plateletpheresis Experience

Today I went through Apheresis or Plateletpheresis procedure of Blood Donation. In the regular blood donation, they take about 450ml blood in a bag, and takes about 45 mins entry-to-exit and the actual donation time is about 15mins. Apheresis is different, that it has some strict medical requirements, blood not only come out of your body, but some portion also goes back, takes more time [entry-exit time of 1:30hours and procedure time of 25mins]. During the initial checking, instead of just checking the blood type, they also check the count, WBC, RBC, Plasma, Platelets etc... And they proceed only if you are eligible, i.e if you have enough quantities of the components.   The procedure: They take the blood, fractionate the blood using centrifuge into three parts; RBC, Platelets, Plasma. They send the RBC back the your body and hold only the Plasma and Platelets. They need certain amount of Platelets. They processed about 1L of my blood and took from me about 150ml of Plasma+Platel ... [more]

My Blood Donation Experiences...

I have donated Blood over 20 times (Didnt keep a real count). If I remember correctly, my blood donation was in year 2000, the year I joined my first job. I have donated in camps and in blood banks. It was wonderful experience everytime I donated blood. And let me be frank, everytime, I fealt pain two twice, once when they pricked my finger for checking my blood and second when they pierced the needle to take the blood. The pain fealt is nothing grater than the pain of the injection prick that we all have had from the doctor for one or the other reason. Other than that I have not fealt anythig different physically before and after the donation. And I used to spend the rest of the day as though nothing had happened. I am B+ and I used to see a lot of B+ donors in the camps and I had asked the doctor there; why do you take so much B+, are there so many people in need of B+ blood? Thats when the doctor talked about centrifuge. The blood that we donate is split into 3 parts. Red cells ... [more]

I called needy to just verify the requirement, many time blood bank and some cons will call /send messages giving some emergency of blood and they will trade the blood.
