Blood Donation Basics: Donating blood is safe and simple procedure. It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete the blood donation process. Any healthy adult between 18 to 60 years of age can donate blood. A person can donate blood in blood donation camp or at a Blood Bank. If he/she donates blood voluntarily without expecting anything in cash or kind in return then he/she is termed as Voluntary Donor and if the donation is to replace the blood unit given to known patient/relative then the donor is a Replacement Donor. The blood collected from the regular voluntary donor is the safest for recipient. A person can donate whole blood or a component of blood. Blood components are separated by a process called apheresis. In apheresis, blood is withdrawn from a donor in anticoagulant solution

and separated into components, one (or more) component is retained and the remaining constituents are re-transfused simultaneously into the said donor. Blood donor selection is based on medical history and limited medical examination done just prior to blood donation. Donor history questionnaire is designed keeping in mind the protection of donor and recipient. The aim is to make sure that it should not harm the donor and the recipient.
