Every component has a job to do…
Whole Blood is made up of four separate components that can be transfused separately or together to treat various conditions.
- Red blood cells carry oxygen to the organs and tissues and removes carbon dioxide through the lungs. It is used during emergencies, surgeries and cancer treatments.
- White blood cells protect the body from infection. They can also carry viruses and bacteria and, for this reason, are removed from any donated blood.
- Plasma is a liquid component that carries nutrients to all parts of the body and carries waste products out of the body, acting like a cell transportation system. It is also rich in vital proteins used to treat patients undergoing extensive surgery or trauma, and patients with bleeding disorders.
- Platelets provide the basis for clotting, which helps control bleeding. It is used to treat patients with bleeding disorders and cancer.
All our blood cells are produced by our bone marrow - our body’s blood cell factory.
