  • BACKGROUND: Blood donation plays an important role in every health care system. Measurement of hemoglobin (Hb) concentration or hematocrit to assess hematologic recovery after donation may not adequately reflect the true amount of blood as they are affected by plasma volume fluctuations. Instead, total Hb mass (tHb) is the variable of choice and can be determined in routine clinical practice. Therefore, the purpose was to investigate the recovery of tHb after standard blood donation.
