Abstract

Blood transfusion is a life-saving process usually indicated for blood loss, surgical procedure, and accidental cases. The supply of blood to the recipients during emergency conditions are expected to be fulfilled by organizing blood donation camps especially at colleges, universities, offices, shopping malls, private/government organizations, army and police stations. Such camps collect essential information from the volunteer donors which may further help to study the causes of donor deferrals in different populations. In the present study, the causes of temporary and permanent deferral among the people of Gurugram was analyzed. In 431 donors registration, total deferrals cases were 110 and the most common reason for deferrals were anemia, low BP, animal bite, typhoid, and menstrual cycle etc. The number of female deferrals was higher than that of males. Our study revealed temporary and permanent deferral causes and motivated temporary deferral cases for future donations while those with permanent deferral conditions were advised for proper medications.
