Our blood bank personnel have asked me the following questions;

1.Can we bleed a person who has a bilirubin value of above 2 mgs% ? Do we avoid blood donation from persons having serum bilirubin above the normal of < 1 mgs %?

2. Do we need to avoid blood donation from those who have recently been immunised with Hepatitis B vaccination ? if so , upto how many days ?

thanks

According to the NIH blood bank donors with jaundice are not allowed to donate.

The NIH blood bank has no objections against being vaccinated and donating blood (see here).

A very useful ressource by the way. I guess it is because Hep B Immunization is an active immunization with non-infectious Hbs-Antigen.

Thanks.

The question came because the donor was clinically normal, Non icteric. His Hbs Ag, Screen for HCV were negative. When the tests were done the lab technician noticed yellowishness of serum and she did the serum bilirubin which was above normal. Do you screen your donors for HEV and HAV also?

thanks
