The services of the Blood Bank
were well known and' appreciated
during the war. But now that we
are in our first postwar year, few
people realize what has happened
to the units that were so influential
in saving many lives.
Blood Banks still exist. Now, how-
ever, the units are set up only in
the hospitals for the use of their
patients exclusively. A large Blood
Bank is in operation at University
The blood at University Hos-
pital is contributed first of all by
friends or relatives of the patients
in need of the transfusions, whe-
ther or not their blood type is com-
patible with that of the particular
patient. Their contributions are
divided into four. types: type AB,
A, B, and 0, which are kept in
special containers and placed in
a large refrigerator regulated at
57 degrees Fahrenheit. Through
the use of a special process the
blood may be stored for twenty-
Often, however, in the case of an
emergency, the blood on hand does
not correspond to the subtype of
the patient needing it. Emergency
operations must be delayed until
the proper variety is acquired. It is
then imperative that the Hospital
depend upon the services of pro-
fessional blood donors.
The Hospital accepts as profes-
sional donors any men over twen-
ty-one, who have undergone the
proper examinations, and as a
result are found to have a rare
form of blood subtype that can
seldom be obtained from the
friends or relatives of the patients.
These donors are then placed on
the Hospital records. When a certahi
type and subtype of blood is required,
the donor whose blood corresponds
is called, and must come to the Hos-
pital within a half-hour. He is com-
pensated for his services at the price
of $17.50 per quart, but each donor
is not asked to contribute more than
once every, two months.
Any man who is interested in
becoming a professional donor may
register for examinations of his
blood and general physical con-
dition from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every
day and from 8 p.m. to noon on
Saturdays at the Blood Bank at
In speaking of the work done by
the Blood Bank, Mrs. Norma Sagula,
R.N., supervisor of the Blood Bank,
says, "More than 500 quarts of blood
are required in the Hospital every
month. In order to keep transfus-
ing this much blood, the services of
professional donors are greatly need-
