Blood donation is made at the State Institute of Hematology of Rio de Janeiro (Hemorio).

The State Institute of Hematology of Rio de Janeiro (Hemorio) fell by over 60% of blood donations in the past two months. The inventory reduction can impair emergency response hospitals, surgeries and treatment of chronic diseases. According to the coordinator of Hemorio, Janine Cardoso, the lack of the habit of donating blood is the main cause of reduction of inventory of the organ.

The Brazilians do not have the habit of blood donation. So we are campaigning to show people [the importance of donations] and create an engagement, said the coordinator. To try to restore normalcy in inventories, promotes Hemorio today (28) in the neighborhood of Guadalupe, north of state capital, a campaign to raise awareness on the subject. The expectation is that about 80 units of blood are collected on site. The action, which is traveling, has been used since the beginning of the year and also serves cities in the metropolitan area.

Janine Cardoso notes that both the arrival of winter and the holidays through the year may affect the stocks of the blood bank Hemorio.

Among the recommendations for donors are at least six hours rest the night before the donation, do not drink alcohol 12 hours before and not smoking, and avoiding fatty foods over a period of 4 hours. People over 50 pounds and aged 16 (with permission of the person responsible) and 68 years and are in good health are able to donate blood.
