Report of Visit to ‘IMA Blood Bank’ on the date 14 October 2017 & 16 October 17

Introduction To Blood Bank

The term “blood bank” typically refers to a division of a hospital where the storage of blood product occurs and where proper testing is performed (to reduce the risk of transfusion related adverse events),

Blood banking process takes place in the lab. to make sure that donated blood, or blood products, are safe before they are used in blood transfusions and other medical procedures. Blood banking includes typing the blood for transfusion and testing for infectious diseases.

Today, blood banks collect blood and separate it into its various components so they can be used most effectively according to the needs of the patient. Red blood cells carry oxygen, platelets help the blood clot, and plasma has specific proteins that allow proper regulation of coagulation and healing.


IMA Blood Bank visit
An educational visit to IMA blood bank was organized on 14th & 16th Oct 2017 for paramedical students of UCBMSH Dehradun. Objective of the visit was to create awareness for Blood Banking procedures.
