Facts About Blood And Blood Banking, American Association of Blood Banks:"According to the National Blood Data Resource Center (NBDRC) about 13.9 million units (including approximately 695,000 autologous donations) of whole blood are donated in the United States each year. Approximately eight million volunteer blood donors provide blood for about 4.5 million patients per year. Typically, each donated unit of blood, referred to as whole blood, is separated into multiple components, such as red blood cells, plasma, platelets, and cryoprecipatitated AHF (antihemophilic factor). Each component generally is transfused to a different individual, each with different needs."

Blood Bank Locator, American Association of Blood Banks:"The need for blood is great--on any given day, approximately 32,000 units of Red Blood Cells are needed. Accident victims, people undergoing surgery, and patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer, or other diseases, such as sickle cell disease and thalassemia, all utilize blood. More than 23 million units of blood components are transfused every year. If you would like to donate blood, please use the locator below. As a patient and recipient of a blood transfusion, it is important that you receive the highest standard of care and the safest blood possible. The American Association of Blood Banks' (AABB) mission is to protect patients and the nation's blood supply. The AABB sets standards for blood banks and transfusion services, and accredits member blood banks and transfusion services that meet these high standards. If you would like to donate blood or are in need of a blood transfusion as part of an upcoming surgery or therapy, be sure to consider an AABB-accredited hospital."

Blood Services, American Red Cross:"Having provided comfort and aid to those in need since 1881, the Red Cross quickly adopted Blood Services as a fundamental part of its humanitarian mission. Started as a war relief effort to provide life-saving blood for soldiers during World War II, Red Cross Blood Services has grown to become an industry leader — collecting and distributing half the nation's blood supply. All the technology and science, however, is only made possible by one simple selfless act: An average person takes time out of his busy schedule to give a piece of himself so that someone he will never know has a chance to live. This incredible act of kindness, that allows a stranger to celebrate another birthday, give birth to a child, or share another Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends, is at the heart of what we do."

BLOOD BANKING, BLOODBOOK.COM:"From earliest recorded history, Blood has been a point of fascination and mystery. Early in time we see Blood represented as a source of passion. We still see the terms "hot Blooded," "cold Blooded" and "bad Blood." These familiar expressions are found in every language, and are in common use the world over today. As history goes, even Bloodletting was a common medical practice until the early 1800's. This combination of superstition and desire to do something meaningful for sick people, no doubt, led to many deaths and the spread of disease. "Thinning the Blood," was also very popular, fruitlessly useless, and sometimes deadly."

Blood Typing and Cross Matching, Donorweb.org:"The blood type of a person is established through specific proteins called antigens found on the surface of red cells as well as antibodies in the plasma. There are 4 basic ABO blood types. They are Type A, B, AB and O. Blood Group "O" persons are "universal blood donors" and Blood Group "AB" are " universal recipients".

******************************************************

Blood Bank, Labtestsonline.com:"Blood banking, the process of collecting, testing, processing, and storing blood for later use, is a cornerstone of emergency and surgical medicine and is dependent on the clinical laboratory for ensuring the safe use of blood and its components. This article provides a glimpse into four key aspects of blood banking: 1) donating blood, 2) protecting the blood supply, 3) ensuring its proper use, and 4) the risks involved for donors as well as recipients. The American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) estimates that an average of 23 million units of blood components are transfused into needy patients annually in this country. Blood transfusions, the introduction of blood or blood components from one person into the bloodstream of another, are essential for saving the lives of victims of trauma, for those undergoing major surgery, and for those with other causes of blood loss. Blood transfusions also are used to treat severe anemia resulting from other causes as well, including the effects of chemotherapy, cancer, sickle cell disease, and thalassemia."
