Blood Emergency: Blood Supply Tips Into Danger Zone
Date:1/13/2009

ellation of many blood drives.
  • Recession-related layoffs and business closings mean additional cancelled blood drives.
  • January is always one of our toughest months, since it takes awhile for people to get back into regular work routines, get back to school from holiday breaks, and begin participating in blood drives.
    • Patient care is at risk
      • Blood supply is below the 5-day safety level (and for some types, less than a 2-day supply), and falling.
      • Our projections are also way down, and that's why we're asking the public for help.
      • We especially need Type O and Rh negative blood, but encourage all donors to contact us

    • Some blood types are being rationed to hospitals with possibility of more drastic measures should the shortage worsen
      • Severe rationing is possible.
      • Nightmare scenario is ERs shutting down because they don't have enough blood to handle emergencies

    • Four million Americans would die each year without donated blood, and the only place to get this precious resource is from volunteer blood donors

    • New York Blood Center requires 2,000 each and every day.

    • One out of three people will need a life-saving blood transfusion in their lifetime

    • Each donation can save up to three lives

    • Medical advances have increased the need for blood
