Slide 11 - Blood Center Funding LifeSouth charges hospitals a service fee for each unit of blood The processing fee covers the cost of recruiting, collecting, testing, storing and transporting blood components There’s no charge associated with what’s actually “in the bag” Processing fees cover the costs associated with providing a safe and adequate blood supply
Slide 12 - Why is Blood Donation So Important? Every 3 seconds someone needs a blood transfusion Blood must be donated, tested and provided to the hospital before it is needed 32,000 pints of blood are needed each day Each donation can help save 3 or more lives Patients only receive a transfusion if their life depends on it
Slide 13 - Types of Blood Donations Whole blood Can be donated every 8 weeks Is separated into components at LifeSouth Helps 2-4 different patients Apheresis Collection of specific blood components Can donate platelets every 14 days
Slide 14 - Types of Donations Double Red Cells Collection of red cells only Can donate every 16 weeks
Slide 15 - Whole Blood Donation The most common way to donate Actual donation time of 5-15 minutes Allow 45 to 60 minutes for registration, health interview, donation and refreshments Blood is usually separated into red cells, platelets and plasma to help multiple patients
Slide 16 - Apheresis Donation Automated collection process that can separate components as they are donated Can provide a full patient dose of platelets for transfusion Can also provide plasma and/or red cells Allow 2 hours for donation process
Slide 17 - Double Red Cell Donation Automated collection process Provides two full patient doses of red cells for transfusion Donation time is approximately 30 minutes
Slide 18 - Levels of Community Blood Needs Urgent- We have less than 1 day supply of blood on our shelves and our hospitals have less than 5 days of supply Critical- We have less than 1 day supply of blood and our hospitals have less than 2 days of supply Emergency-We have less than 1 day supply of blood and our hospitals have less than 1 day supply and elective surgeries are being cancelled or rescheduling
Slide 19 - Who Can Donate? Donors must be 17 or older, (16-year-olds may donate with written parental permission) Donors must weigh 110 pounds or more Donors must show I.D. Donors must be in general good health Each potential donor has a “mini-physical” to check vital signs, iron level and health history All donors receive a recognition item and a cholesterol screening
Slide 20 - Who Needs Blood? Trauma patients Cancer patients Transplant recipients Surgical patients People with blood diseases and disorders such as Sickle Cell Disease
Slide 21 - What is Sickle Cell Disease? Genetic abnormality of hemoglobin production Hemoglobin in red blood cells carries oxygen Normal hemoglobin is called hemoglobin A (for adult) Sickle hemoglobin is called hemoglobin S
Slide 22 - Complications of Sickle Cell Disease Shortened red blood cell life  Jaundice, gallstones Clumping of sickled cells Acute pain syndrome Stroke Acute chest syndrome Splenic sequestration (painful)  “Autosplenectomy” Hand-foot syndrome Delayed growth Liver disease
Slide 23 - Leg ulcers Pregnancy complications Intrauterine growth Retardation Spontaneous abortion Pre-eclampsia Pulmonary hypertension Acute and chronic renal failure Blindness Chronic pain Life expectancy is 40 to 50 years of age
Slide 24 - Treatment of Sickle Cell Disease Reducing pain OTC meds and heating pads for mild-moderate pain Hospitalization with narcotics and fluid administration for severe pain Preventing complications Daily doses of penicillin Hydroxyurea Long-term treatments: Blood transfusions (most common) Bone marrow or cord blood transplants if a match is found
Slide 25 - Blood Types Needed for Sickle Cell Patients Donors with this type of blood are considered Sickle Cell Heroes O Positive/Negative Donors with Special Antigens Ethnically Diverse Blood that has been drawn within the last 7 Days preferred Only 6% of the population has this type of blood
Slide 26 - LifeSouth’s Efforts to Support Sickle Cell Patients Identify/recruit blood donors as Sickle Cell Heroes to match up with specific patients Make available cord blood units or bone marrow donors for transplantation FUTURE HOPE: Perform molecular typing of all patients and have enough donors to provide identically ‘matched’ blood to patients who can’t be transplanted
Slide 27 - Cord Blood & Bone Marrow Cord Blood and bone marrow have been used to CURE Sickle Cell in children Research is ongoing for transplants for adults The cord blood or bone marrow from a donor is implanted in a patient and new, healthy blood grows in the patient, replacing their diseased blood

Slide 30 - Five Points of Life Creating a Donation Generation
Slide 31 - Objective To educate the public on the ways to share life with others through donation with a focus on school age children and young adults to create a Donation Generation.
Slide 32 - Our Vision Imagine a world where every eligible donor gives blood, joins the marrow registry, talks to their family about organ donation and learns more about cord blood donation Imagine every school age child is educated on the importance of donation so when they are eligible to donate, they will donate and become the “Donation Generation” Five Points of Life aims to change the world.
