Blood Donors Needed

by Loh Guan Lye Specialists Centre:
Our blood bank is running low, especially Platelet Concentration!
We urgently need blood donors helping us to replenish our blood bank to meet patients’ needs. All blood types are needed. B is also welcome.
Please feel free to drop by to our lab at office hour for blood donation.

Before donating blood, donor should:
  • Eat a healthy meal before your donation. Avoid fatty foods
  • Get a good night's sleep.
  • Maintain a healthy iron level in your diet by eating iron rich foods, such as spinach, red meat, fish, poultry, beans, iron-fortified cereals and raisins.
  • Drink an extra 16 oz. of water and fluids before the donation.
The steps in the process are:
1)     Registration
        a.  Walk-in to Blood Bank.
        b.  Some information to be filled up.
2)     Physical check and health history
        a.  You will be asked some questions during a private and confidential interview about your
             health history and places you have traveled.
        b.  We will check your blood pressure and hemoglobin level present in a sample of blood.
3)     Donation process
        a.  We will cleanse an area on your arm and insert a brand new sterile needle for the blood draw.
             This feels like a quick pinch and is over in seconds.
        b.  The actual donation takes about 8-10 minutes.
        c.  When approximately a pint of blood has been collected, the donation is complete and lab staff
             will place a bandage on your arm.
4)     Refreshment
        a.  After donating, you will be given snacks and something to drink and continue with your
             normal daily activities.

Blood Donors = Life savers

Thank you.
