Due to low donations and increased patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially those with AB or O blood type, to donate now. Please contact the Blood Center to schedule a time to give at a donor center or mobile blood drive near you as soon as possible. Call (800) 747-5401, or schedule online at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or via our Blood Center Impact App. Thank you!
Thirty percent of the population is A-Positive, making it one of the blood types transfused most often. Depending on hospital demand, A+ donors could be needed to donate platelets or whole blood. Platelets are in high demand by hospitals because they help cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and premature babies. In the case of an emergency, doctors often do not have time to determine the blood type of the patient and will depend on type A and AB plasma for trauma patients and accident victims. Ask a blood center representative which donation method is preferred to help meet hospital need.Click here to download the A Positive Blood Type Informational Rack Card.
