TYPES OF DONATIONS:
♣ POWER RED: A Power Red Donation collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor. These donors must meet specific eligibility requirements and have Type A Neg, B Neg, or O blood.
♣ BLOOD: This is the most common type of donation during which approximately a pint of “Whole Blood” is given. This type of blood donation usually takes about an hour.
