The hospital being a premier tertiary care hospital, patients come from all over the NCR and neighboring STATE. Blood Bank of this hospital has the state-of- art equipment and Technology. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) is followed at all phases of donor’s selection, screening and processing blood and serological processes. Standards in the techniques and quality control are meticulously maintained as laid down in the Drugs and Cosmetic Act, of the Regulatory Authority, Drugs Controller General (India), Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Government of India, National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Health Care Providers and WHO.
The departments of Blood Transfusion Services assure the supply of as much as possible safe and good quality of blood and its components to the patients and provide high quality services.
Elimination of transfusion transmitted diseases and transfusion of safe blood. To maintain quality of blood and blood products, voluntary donors are taken. In private blood banks, where blood donation camp is not permitted by Government of India, the immediate family members are considered as replacement donors.
Apart from carrying out all mandatory tests (VDRL, Malaria, HIV I&II, HbsAg and Hepatitis C virus as laid down by the Drug Controller of India for licensed Blood Banks, Kailash Hospital also conducts Hepatitis B core Antibody (Anti HBcore IgM + IgG) on every unit of blood to make the blood safer for transfusion.
The department runs round the clock and blood and its components are supplied as and when requested
Why should you donate blood?
The annual requirement of blood in NCR and in neighboring areas is about 5, 00,000 units of blood, and all blood centers collect about 3, 50,000 units of blood. That means there is shortage of blood about 1, 50,000 units of blood every year. The blood center of this hospital needs about 50 blood donors every day to meet the transfusion need of patients at this hospital. With increase in population and development of more advanced medical and surgical procedures, the need of blood is ever increasing. There is no substitute for blood. Only blood donors can help to maintain adequate supply of blood to save the lives of those who need it.
You can help the blood center to meet the need of blood by donating blood yourself and motivating your friends / colleagues to donate blood and by becoming regular voluntary blood donor.
Who can Donate Blood?
Blood Donation Procedure:
Blood donation is simple harmless and painless procedure and consists of:
Leukocytes-Reduced Blood Components
Donor leukocytes present in cellular blood components are linked to wide range of transfusion adverse reactions mainly non-hemolytic reactions (FNHTR), HLA alloimmunization, platelet refractoriness, transfusion related acute lung injury (TRALI).
Techniques for preparing leukocytes reduced components are:
Leukocytes - Reduced/Depleted Red Blood Cells
Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP)
Cryoprecipitate (Factor VIII):
Prepared on the specific demand from fresh frozen plasma.
What is Apheresis?
Blood has several components, including red blood cells, platelets, plasma and stem cells. Apheresis is special type of donation in which a specific component, viz. platelets, gametocytes (white cells) plasma or stem cells are withdrawn from a donor using a special equipment called Cell Separator: the remaining components are returned into donor’s blood circulation. It is very safe
What is the advantage of Apheresis?
Random Donor Platelet concentrate prepared from one unit of whole blood contains less number of platelets. For therapeutic dose of platelets for an adult patient 6-8 units of random donors platelets are required, while one unit of platelets prepared by apheresis is sufficient. Besides platelets prepared by apheresis are leukocytes reduced. Thus there are less chances of transfusion transmitted-infections and platelet refractoriness with the use of platelet apheresis.
The following procedures of Apheresis are done:
