What is the best donation procedure for those with O+ blood?
Those with O+ blood type (who meet certain criteria) are encouraged to choose Double Red Cell Donation. This kind of procedure takes twice as many red blood cells from the donor while leaving the platelets and plasma behind.
It’s an efficient way for O+ donors to get more bang for their donation buck by helping to save even more lives!
Those who are unable to meet the height/weight requirements for Double Red Cell Donation may still complete a traditional Whole Blood Donation. This procedure utilizes red blood cells, platelets, and plasma, and one donation can help save up to three lives!
