Team-BHP Blood Donor List
This is a public poll.
Please pick your blood group if you do not mind being called upon to donate blood if the need ever arises for a fellow member from your city.
Some information about blood donation.
People with Blood type AB negative (1/2% of the population) and AB positive are potential universal plasma donors. This means plasma can be transfused to people having all Blood types.
People with Blood type AB positive comprise 3-1/2% of the population. People with this type of Blood are universal recipients. This means that they can be transfused with any type of Blood in emergency situations.
O positive donors are needed more frequently than any other donor. Because O positive is the most common Blood type (39% of the population), it is needed more often by people requiring Blood in hospitals.
7% of the population has O negative Blood. People with O negative donors are potential universal red Blood cell donors. This means that their red Blood cells can be transfused to patients with all types of Blood.
Who can you donate blood too?

I'm O+ve....Will be glad to help anybody in need.
BTW, Rtech., maybe you could edit your first post to include some information about donating blood.T hings like what makes people uneligible to donate blood, i.e if you've had jaundice, then for how long can you not donate blood & other stuff like that.
Also some info about which blood groups are compatible with which, which one is the universal donor, which is the universal accepter.
I know a lot of people know most of this stuff, but for a thread like this, maybe it will be nice to have all the info consolidated into the first post.
Just my two bits...
