How to prepare for a good blood donation experience


Mon, May 30th, 2016
Posted in Mabel Health & Wellness

MABEL, MN, May 2016 – Healthy individuals are needed every day to maintain an adequate blood supply for patients in need. Once donor has made the commitment to give blood, it is important to take a few simple steps to prepare and help ensure a good donation experience.

The American Red Cross recommends getting a good night’s sleep, drinking an extra 16 ounces of water, eating iron-rich foods to maintain a healthy iron level and consuming a low-fat meal before donating.

Donating blood is an easy way to help others and only takes about an hour. The Red Cross encourages donors to give blood every time they are eligible – every 56 days for whole blood donations and every 112 days for double red cell donations.

Upcoming blood

donation opportunities:

Mabel Community Blood Drive on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the American Legion. 114 N Main Street, Mabel.

How to donate blood:

Call Bev Williams (507) 450-0992 or (507) 493-5284 or simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1 (800) Red-Cross [1 (800) 733-2767] to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent), weigh 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

Blood donors can now save time at their next donation by using RapidPass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, prior to arriving at the blood drive. To get started and learn more, visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass and follow the instructions on the site. About the
