A plasma donation allows you to give a specific part of your blood and help certain types of patients. Plasma helps patients with massive blood loss, which can be caused by injuries sustained in serious motor vehicle accidents, childbirth complications and severe burns. A plasma donation also helps those with clotting disorders and rare blood diseases.Make Appointment Now
What is plasma?
Plasma is the liquid portion of blood that suspends the red blood cells, platelets and other cells within our bloodstream. This blood component contains hundreds of different proteins and critical substances, like clotting factors and electrolytes needed for our bodies to function normally.
During a plasma donation, a special machine removes the plasma from your blood and returns the other components to your body, along with saline, while you rest comfortably.
