What blood types are needed?
Because of the large volume of children at CHOC, all blood types are currently needed. Don’t know what type of blood you have? Come in and donate and we can find out for you a few days after your donation.

 

Is Donating Blood Safe?
There is no danger in getting AIDS or other diseases from giving blood or blood products. Sterile, one-time-use disposable needles, tubing and collection bags are used to protect you. Registered nurses who are specially trained in blood collection will remain with you during the entire donation process.

Are there any side effects?
Side effects as the result of blood donation are rare. The donor center nursing staff will educate you on any potential side effects that you could possibly experience. Healthy people have an excess supply of red blood cells, platelets and plasma.
