O-negative donors needed
United Blood Services announced Monday an urgent appeal for type O-negative blood donors.
Currenty we only have one days supply on the shelf, said Judy Roat, director of Community Relations.
Donors can donate at the main facility on S. Eason Boulevard in Tupelo or call for other blood donation opportunities. Donors may call 662-842-8871 or visit www.UnitedBloodServices.org to make a convenient appointment to donate.
Only six percent of the population has 0-negative blood, yet at hospital trauma centers, sometimes as much as 12 percent of the blood transfused is O-negative. Thats because O-negative blood is the universal blood type.
Another special need for O-negative blood is in the treatment of babies. Neonatal care facilities requre fresh units of O-negative blood each day to treat their tiny patients.
Volunteer donors must be at least 17, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health.
