Facts about blood banking.

According to the Association of Blood Banks as of now in 2022:

  1. About 1000 units of blood are needed every day in mumbai
  2. The number of blood units donated is about 2 to 3 lakhs a year for mumbai
  3. Each unit of blood is broken down into components, such as red blood cells, plasma, cryoprecipitated AHF, and platelets. One unit of whole blood, once it’s separated, may be transfused to several patients, each with different needs. 

Who are the blood donors?

Most blood donors are volunteers. However, sometimes, a patient may want to donate blood a couple of weeks before undergoing surgery, so that his or her blood is available in case of a blood transfusion. Donating blood for yourself is called an autologous donation. Volunteer blood donors must pass certain criteria, including the following: 

What tests are done in blood banking?

A certain set of standard tests are done in the lab once blood is donated, including, but not limited to, the following:

• Typing: ABO group (blood type)

• Rh typing (positive or negative antigen)

• Screening for any unexpected red blood cell antibodies that may cause problems in the recipient

• Screening for current or past infections, including:
1. Hepatitis viruses B and C
2. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
3. Syphilis

• Irradiation to blood cells is performed to disable any T-lymphocytes present in the donated blood. (T-lymphocytes can cause a reaction when transfused, but can also cause graft-versus-host problems with repeated exposure to foreign cells.)

• Leukocyte-reduced blood has been filtered to remove the white blood cells that contain antibodies that can cause fevers in the recipient of the transfusion. (These antibodies, with repeated transfusions, may also increase a recipient’s risk of reactions to subsequent transfusions.) 

What are the components of blood?

While blood, or one of its components, may be transferred, each component serves many functions, including the following:
• Red blood cells. These cells carry oxygen to the tissues in the body and are commonly used in the treatment of anemia.

• Platelets. They help the blood to clot and are used in the treatment of leukemia and other forms of cancer.

• White blood cells. These cells help to fight infection, and aid in the immune process.

• Plasma. The watery, liquid part of the blood in which the red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets are suspended. Plasma is needed to carry the many parts of the blood through the bloodstream. Plasma serves many functions, including the following:
1. Helps to maintain blood pressure
2. Provides proteins for blood clotting
3. Balances the levels of sodium and potassium

• Cryoprecipitate AHF. The portion of the plasma that contains clotting factors that help to control bleeding.
