Blood donor wellness refers to acceptable blood donor value ranges for various health factors gathered on the day of your visit to Vitalant.
The donor wellness factors assessed in a mini-physical prior to blood donation include temperature, blood pressure, pulse, hemoglobin and, if necessary, a scale weight or total protein counts for our frequent plasma donors.
Each column in the table has an “information button” at the top of the column with information about a particular health factor and the acceptable blood donation range.
Just click on the “graph” button at the top of the column and then press the “print” icon.
You can choose how many donor appointments you want to view. You can view results from appointments since January 30, 2012.
Results will be posted on your MyBloodSource page within 48 hours of your appointment.
Any donors concerned about mini-physical results should contact their personal physicians.
