Your blood donation may be even more special than you realize
A single donation from you can help one or more patients. This is possible because whole blood is made up of several useful components. These components perform
special functions in body. The various blood components are Platelets, Plasma and selected Plasma Proteins. Each of these components can be separated from your
donated volume of blood and transfused into a specific patient requiring that particular component. Thus, many can benefit from one unit of blood.
