Plateletpheresis at Jeevan Jyoti Blood Bank, Nagpur in progress....
Plateletpheresisis the process of collecting thrombocytes, more commonly called platelets, a component of blood involved in blood clotting. The term specifically refers to the method of collecting the platelets, which is performed by a device called cell separator that separates the platelets and returns other portions of the blood to the donor. Platelet transfusion can be a life-saving procedure in preventing or treating serious complications from bleeding and hemorrhage in patients who have disorders manifesting as thrombocytopenia (low platelet count) or platelet dysfunction.
The process takes about 2 hours from starting. It is a safe procedure which a healthy blood donor can easily sustain. Many cancer hospitals have a list of platelet donors. Unlike routine blood donation, where there has to be an interval of three months before next donation, Plateletpheresis can be carried after 72 hour, twice a week, but not more than four times in a month. To know more on this subject, please talk to the blood bank performing this procedures.
