    like my 1st post say... Do monthly donation...

    Maybe should have a personal account, like a saving account. Donate blood per month to my own account and if needed, no need to depend on others.

    regardless if the wife could be saved by the blood transfusion or not.. we need to question... in an emergency... should we be so rigid ? I would like to see what the relevant authorities / parties have to say about this...
    Yes.....this I agreed with you.....think the husband is definitely piss with the fact that the staff refuse to open the door......it could be that if the staff open the door for them, his wife could stand a chance of surviving instead of the fact now. Definitely can understand his kind of feeling.....Imena if all the possible things have been done and yet it still fail, then really not choice but to accept it.....but now the case is there might be a chance but some kuku purposely hinder path to take the chance....hope someone would be answerable to this case as I don't feel that it is just acceptable in this case. Maybe the staff who refuse to open the door will have to answer for it....

    With so much said by so many, let's wait for the Coroner's Report to surface the facts. Otherwise, it is meaningless to comment based on lack of information orbased on hear-say.

    Yes, u can have an autologous blood donation. Usually, ppl with rare blood type will donate his own blood for storage and use on himself should a situation arises when he needs the blood which is very difficult to find among the population.

    hope i don't get slammed for saying this... it is everytime when something really bad happened then we (singaporeans) start to react, or act. i do see the 'please donate blood' ads everywhere... but i am guilty of not donating blood. they need 300 people donating EVERYDAY.. makes me think if i should just stop being lazy and just go blood bank this weekend.

    i feel bad for this woman as it is most unfortunate ... though fortunately her twins survived.
    R.I.P ....

    the cause for the woman's death isn't 100% confirmed.. is there any actual autopsy report? and yeah the hospital.. they could be wrong because they are so inflexible... yet they have to stick to their rules... but i'm amazed the deceased's hubby can gather TWO HUNDRED RELATIVES with same blood grp at such short notice

    let's see what the hospital says. as usual.

    You don't need to be the same blood group to donate/receive blood.
    See here for more info.
    O- is the best blood to be a donor.

    O can give everyone else, but they can only receive from O
    AB is the most 'selfish', can only give to AB but can receive from anyone and everyone
    A can give to A & AB
    B can give to B & AB

    thats about it i think.

    to a limited extend only....as previously mentioned, bld has a shelf life, abt 120 days ...
    platlets has a even shorter self life.
    frozen plasma can be kept for a longer period

    Autologous transfusion is only feasible for planned, elective surgery. Certainly you can't keep blood indefinately for yourself. Doesnt work in an emergency situation either.

    None of us know the full story as yet. Perhaps we never will.

    BUT the bureaucracy stinks to high heaven. Meeting 'quotas', and not opening offices because of 'offical' hours. We are talking human life here not a HDB flat.
    Also building blood stock that MAY or MIGHT be needed for other serious cases is not an excuse. Here the patient MUST have the blood. And its not like the Blood Bank's larder is empty.

    Unfortunately we have many automatons in our civil service. Never use your descretion or initiative just follow your book of rules and bloody regulations and your arse will always be as smooth as a baby's.

    A few months ago I assisted an elderly man (a stranger) who had slipped and struck his head on the pavement causing serious bleeding. Accompanied him to NUH A&E in the ambulance and whilst there I was asked to give my personal particulars in case the hospital needed to contact me. I asked if I or a hospital staff can use his handphone to contact his next of kin. Had a shouting match with the receptionist before she conceded. Contacted his family and I left when they arrived. The reason for not letting me use his h/p - as I was not related I may make off with it. Had to make the braindead receptionist understand that I was the one who called for the ambulance, accompanied the man and anyway the hospital had all my contactable details.

    The sad thing is despite our rantings and ravings we allow these incompentences to go on. Tomorrow it might jolly well be one of us or our families.

    Who would do it until they themselves hit the same problem? I would love to donate of course, I do it regularly back in the daze of poly where time is on my hands.
