What Is Involved In Donating Blood?

The donation process is quick and painless. After filling out a form, you will meet wi th a collection technician to have a mini-physical health check. The technician will quickly (and painlessly) check a drop of your blood to make certain you are not anemic. While you recline on a "bed," a technician will insert a needle in your arm and collect about a pint of blood (actual collection time runs about 8-minutes). The only thing you'll feel is a slight pinch in the crook of your arm -- for just a second -- when the needle is inserted. The amount of blood drawn is equal to about 1/12th of the blood in your system, and your body will replace that blood within 24-hours. Then you can enjoy refreshments at our canteen, and talk with other blood donors.

Where does your blood go?

The Red Cross can make up to four separate blood products from each unit donated, and each unit can save a life. The most important thing to remember is that when you give blood you'll save lives.
