Tips for Donating Blood

Your meals before giving blood should be high in iron such as red meat, fish, poultry, cereal, raisins and prunes. In addition you should avoid foods that are very fatty such as hamburgers and ice cream.

The night before you are going to donate blood, make sure to get a full 8-10 hours of sleep.

Wear clothing that makes it easy to access y our veins. Wear a shirt that the sleeves can be rolled up, or wear a shirt that has short sleeves.

The most important thing you can do when giving blood is to remember to relax. The process is not typically painful, and what you are doing can help save lives.

If you have given blood before tell the staff if you know you have veins that are better for drawing blood then others.

If you are unsure whether or not you are eligible to give blood, contact your local red cross and ask them. They will have a series of questions to ask you to determine your eligibility.

After giving blood remember to eat something and re-hydrate yourself. Drink plenty of water and juice over the next day or two to make sure your body recovers properly.

Just because you may not be able to donate blood does not mean that you cannot help with this good cause. You can help to gather donors, raise money, organize another blood drive, and help make donors feel comfortable during a blood drive.

While donating blood remember to let the staff know if you are feeling cold (especially your hands and feet as this is a sign of dropping blood pressure) or if you are feeling dizzy.

For the next 5-6 hours after the donation, refrain from any arduous activities or lifting any heavy objects as you have to allow time for your blood pressure to get back to normal.
