Chonburi, March 11th, 2022 – RMA Automotive ADC staff took themselves to the local department of the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand to participate in a blood donation drive. The event was conducted together with the Thai Red Cross Society. Twenty ADC employees donated several liters of whole blood in the knowledge that their contributions will be used for the emergency treatment of patients across the country, as well as in red blood cell and plasma donations for a range of medical conditions and treatments.
Donating blood is easy, safe and mostly painless. The average adult has around five liters of blood in their body. When donating whole blood which is the traditional donation method, the target is to collect 500ml, but a minimum of 460ml is taken due to dosage requirements and necessary anticoagulant additive mix proportions. This volume represents approximately 10% of a donor’s blood supply. Donors may give whole blood as often as every 8 weeks, double red cells every 16 weeks, and platelets every 7 days.
