Blood donation

While most people donate blood to help others who need it, there are also some health benefits to the donor as well.

 

When you donate blood a short physical is done on each donor.

 

To ensure you are in good health your blood pressure, pulse and temperature are taken. A small hemoglobin sample is also taken. This will alert you to any potential problems with your vitals.
