INTRODUCTION It is well known that young age, low weight, and first time donation status increase the probability of having a reaction but the effect of these 'risk' factors on the grade of reaction has not been well studied. AIM To evaluate the prevalence of these factors in blood donation setup, to identify 'at risk' donors with age less than 30 years and weight less than 60 kg and to assess whether there is any contributory role of these risk factors in predicting the grade of reaction… CONTINUE READING
