My Tour of the Blood Center

In first grade my mom’s friend, Chris took me on a tour of the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. I saw two men donate their own blood. After that I learned that just by donating blood you have saved four people’s lives. While you donate blood you can watch T.V. When you are done you can have a cookie and some juice. I saw lots of labs. There were many labs and in the labs there were machines that spin the blood and they get four things from the blood and they are … Red blood cells, plasma, platelet, and cryoprecipitate that is used as glue for in surgery. I saw the refrigerator that stores the blood and I also saw the freezer that stores the plasma. But my favorite things were going on the big bus, and getting Paula Platelet! Thanks Chris for an awesome tour Chris! It was a little scary but it was fun learning about all of the equipment! The End!
