PAGE 2 THE PRESS OCTOBER 9, 2.013 Blood drive to be hosted in Adams on Oct. 15 ADAMS, N.D. -- On Tuesday, Oct. 15 Adams will hold a blood drive from 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Adams Mountain Lutheran Church. All healthy persons 16 (with parental permission on a special for provided by UBS) and older are in- vited to give blood during the drive to help patients in their com- munity. There is no longer an up- per age limit. Donating is safe, simple and sat- isfying. Your body contains about 10 to 12 pints of blood and, since your body manufactures blood constantly, the amount you give is quickly replaced. The entire process usually takes about an hour, and only about 5-7 minutes for the actual donation. Be- fore you give, a earful medical his- tory is taken. Your temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemo- globin level will be checked. Af- ter the blood is drawn, it is typed and tested for diseases, which might be transmitted to the re- ceiving patient or patients. This mini-physical actually benefits the donor as well as the patient be- cause, if any of the tests indicate a need for medical attention, the donor is referred to his or her per- sonal physician. All the units of blood are broken down into components to help several different patients. Since whole blood must be used within 42 days of donation and some of the components must be used within a few hours, there is always the need for a constant, fresh sup- ply of blood to be donated by volunteers in the area communities. Blood is one of the doctor's most valuable tools, and many people are alive today because the blood was available when they needed it. In our area, approxi- mately 5,000 units of blood are needed each month. Blood centers don't need blood.., people do. United Blood Services relies en- tirely on volunteer donors to help perpetuate a constant, sufficient supply because blood comes from only one source--healthy people who are willing to give of them- selves. If you have any questions about the upcoming blood drive, or if you would like to make an appointment to donate, please call Beth Bylin 944-2412 or Sandy Drevecky 944- 2479.
