Doubling the Impact of O-negative Blood

If you're looking to maximize the impact of your O-negative blood, your blood type is perfect for a Power Red donation!

A Power Red donation is similar to a whole blood donation, except a special machine allows you to safely donate two units of red blood cells during one donation. The machine then returns your plasma and platelets and adds saline, which may make you feel more hydrated and takes only 30 minutes longer.

Below are some common usages of O-negative blood that show why it's so precious.

  • Emergency Transfusions

    O-negative blood is routinely used in emergency rooms and trauma situations where there may not be time to determine the patient's blood type before initiating a transfusion.

  • Pregancy, Childbirth, and Newborn Care

    Many newborns and infants receive O-negative blood, as their blood types are not always immediately known, and O-negative blood is a safe option. In fact, O-negative blood is even used to transfuse babies while still in the uterus!

  • Mass Casualty Incidents

    During mass casualty incidents or disasters, O-negative blood is crucial for quickly addressing the needs of many patients with varying blood types. It's the first type of blood doctors turn to, and the first to run out during a shortage.
