Your best donation types are...
Double Red Cells
Your blood type is considered universal for patients receiving red cells — everyone can utilize your double red cell donations!
Only 1 in 11 people are O-, so your whole blood donations are in high demand for other O- patients.
These are the ideal donation types based on your blood type, but because hospital patient needs change daily, you may be asked to give a different donation type at your next donation appointment.
