Azima Mansuri and Prof. Dr. Meghna Patel*

ABSTRACT

Transfusion of safe blood is the top most priority in transfusion medicine all over the world. It starts with screening and selection of donor in blood bank practice. Safe blood transfusion practice may lead to temporary deferral or permanent rejection of blood donor as routine protocol and results in decreased availability of the blood. This retrospective study quantifies and analyzes rate and reasons of blood donor deferral in Khambhat Taluka of Gujarat, India during the period of August-2012 to July 2016. The overall deferral and/or rejection rate was 3.36%. Further dissection of these incidences revealed that 90.7% cases of deferral and/or rejection were due to due to temporary reason and most common cause for deferral was low hemoglobin level (52.11%) closely followed by the major cause of permanent rejection of blood donor i.e. hypertension (33.33%).
