The Blood Bank of Lifeline Hospital is functional since 2014. The Blood Bank caters to the need of all the patients of the Hospital. All blood collected is split into various components like Packed cells, Fresh Frozen plasma, Cryoprecipitate, Platelets, and Single Donor Platelets on request.
The Bank caters to in-patient and out patients of the Hospital. Blood in excess is given to other Blood Banks or Hospitals belonging to the hospital.
The Blood Bank adheres to strict quality control measures and is very particular in issuing the right product to the patients in need after thorough testing.
The Blood Bank also organises Blood Donation Drives and Camps to voluntarily collect blood to issue components to patients.
There is a constant effort made to motivate, inspire, encourage and influence patient’s relatives and friends to donate blood at our Blood Bank.
During difficult days and during any crisis (natural or man-made) the Blood Bank always strives to work towards helping patients not only belonging to Lifeline Hospital but also catering to the need of anyone and everyone in the city.
Blood Component Therapy is a replacement therapy wherein, blood is fractionanted into its various components and a deficient component is replaced, so that the damage due to lack of a particular component is prevented.
In an Apheresis, donors give only selected components depending on the donors blood type and needs of the community. The remaining blood is returned to the donor.
