Blood donation centers are one of the primary healthcare providers who can make use of the skill of a newly qualified Phlebotomist, performing a vital function that saves millions of lives annually. 4.5 million patients need blood transfusions each year in the U.S, that’s around one transfusion every two seconds, and one pint of blood can save up to three lives. Despite the life-saving value of donated blood, less than 10 percent of people in the U.S donate annually. But the benefits of giving blood aren’t just available to those getting transfusions, the act of donating blood can also have tangible health benefits for the person giving it.
Untreated, hemochromatosis can lead to eventual organ failure. The good news is that one of the treatments suggested by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the removal of red blood cells by phlebotomy or donating blood. As hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder, and cannot be passed on by the donor, blood from hemochromatosis sufferers can still be used in transfusions. Giving blood on a regular basis can be part of the treatment for hemochromatosis and can even help to diagnose the conditions in patients who were unaware that they had it.
