Best use of blood collected in camps vital

Udupi, Jan 29, 2016 : Dr. R. Vishal,  Deputy Commissioner, Udupi  stressed the particular  need for optimum utilisation of blood collected through various voluntary donation camps.

Dr R VishalDC Dr Vishal was speaking after inaugurating a national voluntary blood donation camp, organised by the district administration and other organisations, at MGM College.


Dr. Vishal said that blood was available at Kasturba Hospital, Manipal; District Government Hospital, Udupi; and Indian Red Cross Society blood bank, Kundapur, in the district.

With regard to affordability issue, persons having undergone surgeries could be charged. However, if a person had a below the poverty line (BPL) card, then blood would be provided free of cost .

All pregnant women during delivery, to treat anaemia or post-delivery, if they had lost blood, could be given free blood. But to run a system, a user charge approach was needed. About five decades back, if a blood group matched, complete blood was given. But blood had three important components – red blood cells, plasma and platelets. Blood collected through voluntary blood donation camps should be used completely within a time limit.

Hospitals are more commercial. Most of the doctors have bribed for seat so there is no trust on doctors
