could we donate our blood during ramadhan

apparently we were not meant to be together we are now happily married with other people :P

i just came back from work
was oncall last night
quite an eventful night in the ICU..

anyway , since this is ramadhan
one of the biggest problem we are having now is low blood supply
the blood bank is in danger right now
well.. basically the whole hospital is in danger if the blood bank doesnt have enough blood to supply

during this fasting month , definitely there are less blood donor in our country as most of our population are muslim
and as we are fasting... blood donor will only cause more fatigue
Some of the blood bank do arrange for blood donation after break-fasting..
but still , the number who showed up is quite little
in the end of the day... the blood supply is very critical in the blood bank..


nevertheless... regardless of the fasting month.
the number of sick people has not reducing at all..
instead ... there are more admission as the raya coming soon..
heavy traffic caused more moto-vehicle accident.
meaning.. a lot of bleeding..
and a lot of blood needed to save these injured people...

i had a case of a little girl .. whom was on her way to the school early in morning..
the mom was driving the car..
and somehow... they crashed into another incoming car ( or otherwise )
resulting a severe intra abdominal injury to the little girl...
and she required a lot of blood transfusion..

this is just an example .. of bad things which could have happened to any of us
or our family... our relative...
imagine,... if at that time... the hospital didnt have enough blood supply..
we couldnt save the girl life regardless how many surgeons treat her
the main treatment would still be the blood..
and blood is something we could just simple buy from the supermarket...
it needs to be donated by people...

therefore, my massage to everyone here...
please donate ur blood.
a small amount of ur blood  , could save a life
and that life could be someone close to u....

Shushupian... Derma darah x membatalkan puasa. Tetapi boleh memudaratkan org yg berpuasa kalau x betul2 fit

Dr Hannan said...
