At Versiti Blood Center of Illinois, formerly Heartland Blood Centers, we never forget the patients who receive the blood we collect. Every unit of blood is collected from volunteer donors who meet specific criteria and have been screened according to strict guidelines. Every unit (pint) is collected, transported, tested and stored according to tightly-controlled procedures.
Examples of transfusion needs are:
Cancer: up to 8 units/month
Bone Marrow Transplant: up to 2 units/day
Liver Transplant: up to 100 units
Auto Accident: up to 50 units
Cardiovascular Surgery: 2-25 units
