  • Donation Types
    mobile blood centers Whole blood donors can give every 56 days eight weeks This is the amount of time it takes for your body to fully recover from the donation and regenerate a pint of blood Because we are able to separate blood components and use them in very specific ways a single whole blood donation can save the lives of as many as three people Double Reds Lifeblood has the ability to collect two units of red blood cells in just one visit to our blood center This donation called double reds is pretty similar to a standard blood donation with a few important differences We use a smaller needle which makes the experience a bit more comfortable We utilize an automated blood collection procedure called apheresis which separates your red blood cells from the platelets and plasma As the red blood cells are collected the platelets and plasma are returned back to you along with an infusion of saline which makes you even more hydrated than before the donation The entire process takes about 20 30 minutes longer than a standard donation In order to qualify for double red donation you must meet standard blood donation requirements plus have a hematocrit level of 40 or hemoglobin of 13 5 Double red donors must wait 112 days 16 weeks between donations Platelets Like double reds platelets are collected through apheresis However when platelets are extracted the process is called plateletpheresis During plateletpheresis the platelets are collected while red blood cells and plasma are returned to your body Platelets are important because they help control bleeding When a blood vessel is damaged platelets collect at the site of the injury and temporarily repair the tear Platelets then activate substances in plasma which form a clot and allow the wound to
