Plasma Donation

Plasma Donation
Today I donated plasma for the first time! Such a cool experience knowing that through your effort, you are saving a person’s life. Something I believe every human being should go through once in their life. I went after a buddy of mine told me to do it, so I did. I went alone and at first, it was super sketchy. Tons of people were at this clinic donating plasma as if they were waiting for the newest videogame to be released. The procedure consisted of filling out personal information, a finger prick, a physical, a 20 minute questionnaire, and finally the plasma donation. The plasma donation starts by iodizing the area of insertion where the Phlebotomist would stick the needle. After he/she is done, they leave you for the next 40 minutes to be sucked dry! Just kidding. LOL. The patient is hooked up to a machine that monitors your veins to make sure they don’t close of which could result in a blood clot, separate the plasma from the blood, and recirculate the blood through the machine and back into the body, leaving the plasma in a bag dangling from the bottom of the machine. THAT’S DONATING PLASMA! Oh and i nearly forgot. They also run a saline solution through your veins and cleans out your circulatory system. It’s awesome!! So this is what I did today! What did you do to change someone’s life? 🙂

Yes this my arm 😀

Have a great tomorrow!

In order to work at the cafe and volunteer as a doula, I have to have a yearly TB test. For some reason it wouldn’t stop bleeding this time and I bruised pretty badly. You’re not supposed to touch it at all after it’s administered (including bandaids!) but I HAD to stop the bleeding because it was all over my arm. Ew!

When I went back 2 days later to get it read, she had to ask for a second opinion and almost failed me!
