Points to remember before donation

    It is recommended:

  1. Increase your fluid intake for the next 24 to 48 hours.
  2. Avoid strenuous physical exertion, heavy lifting or pulling with the donation arm for about five hours.
  3. Eat well balanced meals for the next 24 hours.
  4. People seldom experience discomfort after donating. However, if you feel light-headed, lie down until the feeling passes.
  5. If some bleeding occurs after removal of the bandage, apply pressure to the site and raise your arm for three to five minutes.
  6. If bruising or bleeding appears under the skin, apply a cold pack periodically to the bruised area during the first 24 hours, then warm, moist heat intermittently.
