Detection Of Sexually Transmitted Diseases During Blood Donation?
Excuse me .. I want to ask. R nIs every blood donor who donates blood is PMI but has STIs (sexually transmitted diseases) such as HIV, hepatitis or syphilis, etc. Surely you will get an official notification from PMI, regarding the results of the blood …? R nIf you have HIV or hepatitis etc … r n r nThank you for the answer n the response …
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Blood donation is a voluntary activity that is carried out by giving part of the blood you have to other people in need, such as accident patients, women who experience postpartum bleeding, blood cancer and so on.
Of course, even if it is done voluntarily, not everyone can participate in blood donation. This is because to be able to donate blood, there are conditions that you must fulfill, namely:
17-70 years old Minimum weight 45 kg Systolic blood pressure below 180 and diastole below 100 for those who tend to be high and 90/50 for those who tend to be low Have a hemoglobin level of 12.5-17 g / dL and a maximum of 20 g / dL Do not suffer diabetes, cancer, heart disease, lung disease, epilepsy, syphilis, HIV / AIDS, Hepatitis B and / or C Have never been addicted to drugs or alcohol
So that in the flow of the process, you will be ensured that you meet the above requirements through an examination by a new officer or doctor who is allowed to donate blood. If the donor does not know that he or she has certain diseases as you mentioned, a separate test will be carried out on the blood that you have donated. If the blood is proven to have a certain disease, then you will be contacted again and notified to continue treatment at the nearest health center or hospital. You will then be told not to donate any more blood in the future. So, hopefully it answers your question.
