How Is Blood Used?


The Blood Center of New Jersey needs to have 250 people donate blood every day in order to meet the needs of patients in the hospitals and medical centers we service. Each donated unit of blood is tested and broken down into different components.

People
that
need
blood
components
include:

Premature Babies in Intensive Care

Trauma Victims - Vehicular Accidents, etc.

Organ Transplant Patients

Cancer Patients

Burn Victims

Surgery Patients

Children and Adults with Blood Disorders, such as Hemophilias, Anemia and Sickle Cell Disease


According to a Louis Harris poll conducted in 1998, sixty-eight (68%) of people who donated in the last year said they had no plans to donate in the next 12 month.

It is estimated that 75% of the population will need blood at some point in their lifetime. Yet less than 5% of the eligible population donates!
