AB Donors Urgently Needed at United Blood Services

Posted: Updated:
From United Blood Services:

United Blood Services of Reno is in urgent need of AB Plasma donors.  AB Plasma is the universal plasma blood type meaning all hospital patients can receive an AB Plasma transfusion when plasma is required on a moments notice to save lives.  United Blood Services’ inventories of AB Plasma have fallen below adequate levels for our Community’s Blood Program.

“We have a hospital patient in our community who can only receive AB Plasma transfusions and who is using 20 units of AB Plasma daily for an indefinite period of time for their critical condition,” said Steve Thomas who is the Donor Recruitment Director for United Blood Services of Reno.  “And due to the urgent need for AB Plasma this AB Plasma recipient is receiving, we need everyone with AB blood type to consider scheduling an AB Plasma donation appointment today,” continued Thomas.

AB Plasma donations are an automated procedure that takes about an hour and a half.  If your blood type is AB positive, United Blood Services encourages you to schedule an appointment to donate at one of their three Community Donation Centers in Reno (1125 Terminal Way), Carson City (256 E. Winnie Lane) or Sparks (4670 Sparks Boulevard) by calling them at 800-696-4484 just as soon as you possibly can.  

“We need your AB Plasma donation today,” continued Thomas.
