Whether it is favorable to be the donor?

In spite of the fact that the word “donor“ came from Latin “donare“ that means - a gift or a donation, gratuitous donorship not in honor today. Almost nobody wants to give blood “for nothing“. But whether it is possible to call donorship an income source? You judge.

On the Moscow quotations approved by the relevant orders of medical chiefs of Moscow, 100 milliliters of blood cost 108 rubles. In other cities the sum and that is less.

Single “blood donation“ (there is such term, it appears), is no more than 450 milliliters of blood. Plus 20 ml necessary for carrying out the analysis. In total it turns out for 507 rubles 60 kopeks. Not God knows, what sum, especially if to consider that from men will not take blood more often than five times in a year, and from women - four, differently can suffer health.

Before taking a blood test, it is required to pass medical inspection. It is known that absolutely healthy people presently rarity.

All process, except introduction of a needle to a vein, is automated. The device takes away necessary amount of blood, divides it into erythrocytes and plasma. Plasma is packed in packages, and erythrocytes come back to the donor. Will pay the Moscow donor 1176 rubles for 600 ml of plasma.

In modern medicine almost do not transfuse blood in pure form. Use either erythrocytes, or plasma. The last is poured to all, it is required to whom without distinction on blood types. Erythrocytes - opposite, are subdivided into groups. When using erythrocytes can be diluted not with plasma, but physical solution, what is much cheaper.
