Blood Centres

NTR Memorial Trust through it’s Blood Centres provides safe Blood and it’s components.
Goals :

  • Explore and identify innovative means and ways of improving functioning of Blood Centres.
  • Enhance the number of Blood Storage Centres in AP & Telangana.
  • Increase in providing free blood units and free medicines to Thalassemia Patients.

NTR Memorial Trust Blood Centres are operating in different locations since 2008, in close association with a number of Voluntary Donors, IT Companies, Pharma Companies, Educational Institutions, Hospitals, and etc. As a result of its unique approach and commitment to provide safe blood and products, NTR Memorial Trust Blood Centres are one of the finest establishments which are NABH accreditated as well as ISO 9000:2015 certified with modernized, automatic equipment and state of art facilities for Blood Donation, Component preparation, storage and issuance of Blood and its components.  Our Blood Centres are committed to operate 24/7 and 365 days to ensure timely availability of safe blood.

NTR Memorial Trust initially started a virtual Blood Centre, a first of its kind, to promote voluntary blood donations in India. In association with Indian Red Cross Society, NTR Memorial Trust conducted many voluntary Blood donation drives to help the poor and needy patients. With ever increasing demand for Blood and its various components, NTR Memorial Trust has started its first Blood Centre in Hyderabad in the year 2008 which was the first one to be recognized as RBTC (Regional Blood Transfusion Center) in Telangana.

Our’s is the first NGO run standalone Blood bank in South India with NABH accreditation/ISO 9001:2015 certified having one of South India’s most advanced testing facilities with Nucelic Acid Testing (NAT) to detect infections that regular serological tests might fail to detect.

Won Red Cross Society’s Award for performance Excellence for three consecutive years.

            Packed Red Blood Cells

            Red Blood Cells transports oxygen to various organs and helps in exhaling carbon dioxide from body. Red Blood Cells contain protein called Hemoglobin that carries oxygen. Red Blood Cells transfusion is required to increase supply of oxygen to tissues.

            Red Blood Cells transfusion is required in case of acute blood loss (almost 30% of blood volume). Most frequently required during surgeries. Red Blood Cells are transfused to patients having certain blood disorders like Sickle cell anemia, Thalassemia, aplastic anemia etc.

            Red Blood Cells before issuing to patients requires cross match procedure. During Cross matching blood sample of patient is matched with blood sample of Voluntary Blood Donor. Blood in stock having compatibility with patients’ blood is issued.

            Random Donor Platelets

             

            Platelet helps in stop bleeding. When injury occurs, platelets bind together and form a plug inside blood vessel, at injury site. Normally, platelet ranges from 150,000-450,000 per mcL (microliter). The average platelet count is 237,000 per mcL in men and 266,000 per mcL in women. Platelet count less than 150,000 per mcL is termed as thrombocytopenia while platelet count above 450,000 mcL is termed as thrombocytosis.

             

            Platelet transfusion is required when platelet count falls down from normal range (thrombocytopenia) or because of some functional defects of platelets. This fall may be because of certain disease like dengue. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy also require platelets, very frequently.

             

            Platelets have shelf life of only 5 days and needs to be stored in agitator (shaking platform) at 20-24 degree celsius. Cross matching procedure is not required while issuing Platelets to patients.

            Fresh Frozen Plasma

            FFP is prepared by centrifugation of whole blood to separate platelet rich plasma (PRP); The PRP is further centrifuged to separate the plasma from the platelet concentrate. This plasma is then blast frozen to prevent loss of temperature-sensitive (“labile”) coagulation factors V & VIII. The separation of plasma within 6 hours of blood donation qualifies it to be called “fresh” and factors are best preserved in plasma blast frozen. FFP can be stored at -30 degree celsius for 1 year.

            FFP usage Indications

            Cryoprecipitate

            When FFP is thawed at 4 degree celsius a precipitate is formed which is suspended in about 25 ml Plasma. This precipitate is called Cryoprecipitate. Cryoprecipitate is helpful to treat Factor V, Factor XIII and fibrinogen deficiencies. Cryoprecipitate contain more than 80 IU of Factor VIII/ 25 ml bag.
            Cryoprecipitate is mostly used for patients having Haemophilia-A, Van-Willebrand’s disease, liver disease, DIC, TTP, massive transfusion, etc.

            Single Donor Platelets / Apheresis

             

            NTR Memorial Trust Blood Centre has facility to provide single Donor Platelet. This includes a special procedure wherein Voluntary blood donor only donates platelets. In this process we can harvest large number of Platelets from a donor, which would reduce the donor exposure for patient by six to eight times. This results in fewer febrile non hemolytic reactions and reduced HLA immunization. Single Donor Platelet shows better response in “refractory” patients (those who don’t respond well to random donor platelet concentrates transfusion)

             

            Single Donor Platelets are required in following cases-

            Saline washed RBC’s

            Saline washed Red Blood Cells are used for patients having history of severe allergic reaction after transfusion. This process is done to remove all the plasma components and the accumulated chemicals during storage. The said process is done under laminar air flow to ensure sterility and saline wash Red Cells should be used within 24 hours.

            Useful in cases of IgA deficiency and PNH

            Leukocyte reduced RBC’s

            Leucocytes (WBC) are present in varying concentrations in all cellular blood components. These can lead to alloimmunisation and other complications in immune compromised patients. NTR Trust Blood Bank have facility to prepare special blood products such as Leucocyte-reduced red cells to prevent or reduce the adverse effects of contaminating leucocytes.

            Leukocyte reduced RBCs are collected in special blood bags. This blood component is required for immune compromised patients, Thalassemia, intra uterine transfusions and neonates. This ensures 3 log reduction of leucocytes in RBCs that reduces chances of transfusion reactions

            Pre-Storage filtration eliminates accumulation of chemicals like cytokines.

            Pediatric Units

            In neonatal patients, when need for transfusion is required, only small volume is required. In such cases desired volume of blood components made available with closed systems. Remaining volume is again used for other pediatric patients. These components are useful for children, neonates and for intra uterine transfusions.
