Blood Donation  Point to Note after Blood Donation

Points to Note after Blood Donation are listed as follows:-

Do not use the arm that just received venupucture to support yourself when you get up or to carry any heavy items.
Take a rest for 10-15 minutes and have a drink to compensate for the loss of fluid in the body. No additional nutritious foods have to be taken because new blood cells will be automatically replenished. Drink more water after the first two days after blood donation.
You may leave after a short rest. Should you feel not well, please inform our staff.
No strenuous exercise within the next 24 hours. You could resume normal activities on the following day.

 

Blood Donors please read and follow the Post-Donation Advice so as to safeguard the safety for both blood donors and blood recipients.

Haemoglobin is found in red blood cells, a small portion of which will be lost after blood donation. Therefore, before being allowed to give blood, you will be tested for haemoglobin level to make sure that you meet the required standard.If you donate blood regularly, we recommend you to eat well-balanced and iron-rich meals to help your body produce haemoglobin.

Iron supplements are currently given to our donors who have given blood in the past 6 months for free in order to boost the iron reserve in their bodies effectively.
