Sanya Blood Center, which supplies blood to treat the increasing patients in Sanya hospitals, has seen a critically low shortage of blood type B and type O.
Over the past three years, consumption of blood in Sanya hospitals has seen an increase. They are 3,079,885ml in 2009, 3,916,800ml in 2010 and 3,667,885ml in 2011 respectively.
The normal level of blood donation for a year in the center should be kept at above 3,660,000m so as to meet clinical use in the hospitals, according to Li Cairong, the Vice Director of the Sanya Blood Center.
But this year, the levels for blood type B and O are listed as critical. She says the need for blood type B and O has seen an extreme shortage in recent years.
To meet clinical use in the hospitals, the center is appealing to the public for more and active volunteer blood donations.
