Thread: O+ blood needed

  1. #1

    Default O+ blood platelets needed

    Hi

    My friend's classmate needs people to donate blood platelets (blood type O+) as she has just been diagnosed with Leukemia

    Criteria for donors:
    - Between 18 to 45 years old
    - Weigh at least 50 kg
    - Be in good health & not been on any medication (e.g. antibiotics, aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs) for the last 72 hours
    - Have good prominent veins on both forearms that can hold up against the suction of the blood separator machine
    - Go through a medical screening

    Seems donating platelets is different from donating blood.
    The screening will cost the patient $100 per person, that's
    why all requirements

    if willing to donate, pls pm or e-mail me

    thank you

    not sure if the need to give out the above details
    are putting people off.

    If it'd make you feel more comfortable, name & just one
    way which you can be contacted also can

    Thank you

    Poke-u-pine, would you know if the screening and donation can be done in the evenings? i'm O+ and willing, but my timing is a bit off cos i'm only free in the evenings.

    I went for ntu blood donation recently but e Doctor said that 75% of my blood will be wasted cos i have taken anti-malaria pill within last three yrs so i must wait till Dec 2003.And hopefully no more anti-malaria pills.

    Hi Poke-u-pine,

    Uppz for U.

    Yes, it's good for U to list the criteria, if not people's time & your friend's precious money could be wasted.

    I've personally donated my blood platelets a few times to strangers at SGH & National Cancer Centre.

    But this time unable to help as I'm A+....
