Give Blood Today for Community Preparedness

Expect the Unexpected - Boost Your Local Blood Supply

NEW YORK, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New York Blood Center (NYBC) and its regional operations in Manhattan, Long Island, Hudson Valley, Brooklyn / Staten Island, and New Jersey urge healthy people to please donate blood now through Labor Day to help ensure that your community is prepared for predictable, as well as unexpected, blood needs. NYBC also asks that people who have donated blood once in the past to please consider donating again. People can give blood every 56 days.

Demand for blood has been very high this summer from the 200 hospitals served by NYBC. The need for blood and platelets is constant: Donated red cells last only 42 days, and platelets only five days.

The need for blood never takes a summer vacation. In fact, summer is "trauma season" for most emergency rooms. August has the highest number of vehicle accidents, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), because more miles are traveled in August than any other month. The Summer of 2009, in particular, has had a number of severe, tragic accidents within the New York tri-state area. It is crucial that people donate blood, to help supply emergency rooms for these kinds of situations. Car accident and trauma victims may need as many as 50 or more red cell transfusions.

Every two seconds, someone needs blood. O-negative blood is needed immediately, but healthy people of all blood types and ethnicities are encouraged to donate now. People with O-negative blood are known as "universal donors" because their blood can be transfused into anyone. Type O-negative blood is found in just 6 percent of the population, but is used more often by patients with other blood types, especially in emergency rooms and trauma situations. One out of three people will need a life-saving blood transfusion in his or her lifetime.'/>"/>
