Rasale P. L, Raut S. Y, Tambade A. B.


To rule out the various misconception about blood donation, a study was undertaken by evaluating the effect of blood donation on the RBC indices, Hb% and Sr. electrolytes. In


this study 300 ml blood of healthy individual was taken out and RBC indices assessed on Day 1st, 7th, 14th, 21st & 30th. It was found that there is no effect of B.D. on RBC indices,


i.e., RBC Count MCV, MCH, MCHC, Hb% and electrolytes in all follow-up. It means physiological parameters mentioned above remain at normal level thus blood donation doesn’t harms or produce any adverse effects over body.
