Pvt. blood banks, government hospitals in Dakshina Kannada facing shortage

Members of Ajay Sports Club held a blood camp in Surathkal on Thursday to collect about 70 units of blood, while employees of Infosys held a camp on their campus in Mudipu on the same day which generated 120 units of blood. On Friday, employees of Kasturba Medical College in Ambedkar Circle and Attavar organised a camp to collect 40 units of blood.
A unit of blood ranges between 350 ml and 450 ml.
These are among some blood donation camps held in response to appeals highlighting shortage of blood in 10 government and private blood banks in Dakshina Kannada.
While the negative group blood units are in single digits in all the blood banks, AB+ve blood is in single digit among the + ve blood groups in the blood banks.
 
According to administrators of the blood banks, shortage of blood is generally noticed during April and May. Edward Vas, Technical Supervisor from the Indian Red Cross Blood Bank at the Government Lady Goschen Hospital, said that the shortage is because of vacation for college students, who are among the largest blood donors. Young labour, who also donate blood, are now not available as they have gone to their native places for functions and harvesting, he said.
