My father-in-laws platelet transfusion did'nt work so we still need type A+ donors or preferably a platelet apheresis donor A+.

 

Thank you.

I'm wondering if you are overlooking something ? You say that you need type A+ blood. Now according to the compatibility chart type A+ blood is specified for people who have types AB+,AB-, and A+ blood.

 

However, according to the chart ALL of those types can also accept blood types other than A+.

 

ie people with  A+ blood  can also receive blood from people who have A+, and also O-, O+ and  A- 

 

just exactly what is his blood type ??   Because according to the chart there is NO blood type that can receive only A+ blood transfusion 

 

maybe you are being too restrictive in your search ?  just a thought

 I have just been told this by another member and I did'nt know about it. I'm A- and more than willing to donate but here in the Philippines it may be a problem, I'm 66 and they seem to have some problem with British donors because of "mad cow desease".

Thanks Dolsos for the offer, mad cow free O type would be ok I think but you are to far away from Davao. Thank you again for the offer.

Thank you for the offer but the cut off age is 50 and for some strange reason they are very strict with that, I'mm 66 and they won't let me donate.

If you can find a way to transfer it (I think Daisy said the red cross could facilitate) I'm still willing to donate, just need to know where to go.

I don't think there's much point in getting more blood,the "doc" has changed his diagnosis again.

They will look for any excuse possible to deny a free donor so the patient has to pay p5K+ from their blood bank.  It's major BS.  I'm not able to donate at this time because I was under general anestesia within the last year.  The 50 year age limit is another BS.

 

When I was done with my hospital stay for my accident the Dr said I needed 2 units of blood I should have before I went home.  I told him no way and I'd go home and make my own.  He said I might get dizzy.  I said my leg is broken and I'll be in bed a couple weeks anyway so if I get dizzy I won't be falling far.

 

A friend of mine went home 3 pints low.  I might have thought about getting one pint in that situation.

If there is no longer a need, would you like the topic closed?

As per my conversation with the RED CROSS employee here in CDO, Keith will need a person who is a regular blood donor  that have donated at least 5 times because his father in law needs platelet apheresis. This is what makes it so hard.

 

If you are first time donor, cut off age is 50. If regular donor, it is 65 years old.

Does that mean regular anywhere, or regular only in the Philippines Daisy ?

 As long as you have the medical records showing that you've been donating blood, I guess redcross here will consider it. it's for the donor's protection that they are doing it too.

I hope everything is going well for your Father-In-Law. Do you still need this request open?
