DID YOU KNOW?
Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history and mini-physical, donation and refreshments.
The actual blood donation typically takes less than 10-12 minutes. The entire process, from the time you arrive to the time you leave, takes about an hour.
Although an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do each year. This is why shortages occur.
Red blood cells (the most commonly transfused component) last only 42 days.
The average red blood cell transfusion is approximately 3 pints.
