Blood Bank and Transfusion Services

The Blood Bank of Khwaja Yunus Ali Medical College & Hospital is a Government licensed blood bank established in 2004. Located on the ground floor of this hospital, it aims to provide patients with the safest possible blood, equivalent to any international standard. All donations received in the blood bank are voluntary and non-remunerated. All necessary safety measures are taken for both the donors and the recipients including performing the mandatory screening tests for infectious diseases. This blood bank is enriched with one Consultant, one Specialist, four Senior House Officers, and thirteen Medical Lab Technologists.

WHO MAY DONATE BLOOD?

Blood donation is a healthy habit that helps blood renewal and it is not hazardous at all. The volume of blood collected from a donor is about 450ml, this volume is compensated within 24hrs of donation and the body replaces the lost red cells within several weeks. Eligible healthy donors (age 18 to 60 years, having Hb >12gm/dl and weight >45) males can donate blood every 4 months interval and females every 6 months interval. Platelet Apheresis donor’s age should be 18 to 60 years weight >50kg and has not taken the medicine Plavix/Ticlid for the last 14 days.

SOME INSTRUCTIONS PRIOR TO BLOOD DONATION:

  • Do not donate blood on an empty stomach.
  • Maintain a gap of 30 min after meal.
  • Good sleep on the previous night.
  • Drink water (2 glasses) before blood donation
  • Do not donate blood if you have a fever, taking antibiotics or aspirin or antihistamine or insulin.
  • Do not take alcohol 24 hrs prior to blood donation.
  • Do not smoke 30 min before or after blood donation.
  • Avoid driving, vigorous exercise, or playing tennis for at least 2-3 hrs after blood donation

SOME INSTRUCTIONS AFTER BLOOD DONATION:

  • Eat and Drink something before leaving the blood donor area
  • Drink more fluid for the next 4 hours.
  • If there is bleeding from the phlebotomy site raise an arm and apply pressure to the site.
  • If fainting or dizziness occurs either lie down or sit with the head between the knees.
  • If the symptom persists either telephone or return to the blood bank or see a doctor.
  • Resume all normal activity if asymptomatic.
  • Remove bandage after 1 hour.

COLLECTION OF BLOOD:

Prior to blood donation, we do a screening process of the donor which consists of confidential medical examinations including medical history, hemoglobin examination, blood pressure, weight, pulse, and temperature check. Then, a small amount of blood sample is taken for grouping, checking for infectious diseases, and cross-matching. If all tests are okay then the donor is asked to donate blood. All our materials used in blood donation are strictly sterile and disposable.

Single Donor Apheresis Platelet (SDP) is prepared by connecting the donor to a machine and selectively collecting the platelet and returning the remaining blood components back to the donor.
