Αιμοπετάλια.. τόσο σημαντικά κ όμως υπάρχει τρομερή έλλειψη στα ψυγεία των νοσοκομείων.. λίγο πιο περίπλοκη η διαδικασία της λήψης από αυτή του αίματος, όμως το ίδιο σημαντική για τον ασθενή.. αφιερώστε μία ώρα από τη ζωή σας για να δώσετε ζωή σε κάποιον που έχει πραγματική ανάγκη.. #platelets #plateletsdonation  #givelife

“From this to this in less than 3 weeks! Molly benefitted from receiving blood and has today come with me to donate. Children like Molly rely on blood transfusions to get them through their brutal cancer treatment so thank you again to all donors.” #giveblood #platelets #cancer #dosomethingamazing

My first platelet donation session was a success. Due to their short shelf life platelets are required more regularly meaning my rare blood type can be really useful. No reason not to donate people!

Trombocyterna i taket!? Såklart! 🙌🏼 Tänk vilken tur att jag får vara lycklig och ångestfri mitt i en udda tillvaro. Det som är skrivet skall ske. Längtar dock till att immunförsvaret är tillbaka så jag kan ta en shoppingrunda utan att riskera akuten som konsekvens, eller en öl med nån skön polare 😌 Hoppas ni har en ångestfri och härlig vecka! 💕🙏🏼🌟 #fuckcancer #platelets #cancerslayer Im so happy I can stay calm and anxious-free during this odd days. My blood-platelets was so low they could not even count them. My doctor called me and just said: hello! Are you bleeding? Have you been bleeding from any hole? And I was just: NO, I'm not going around and just bleeding from any hole! I would have called you then?! 😅 That is a very weird conversation. So my blood values are not good, but I'm in a very good mood ☺️ Wishing you a anxious-free and happy week! 💖🌟🙌🏼

The weather outside is frightful and SAD may be in full swing, but that doesn't stop me from indulging in some Caribbean treats and retreating my mind onto a Jamaican beach where parrots and Rastaman dem ah roam.

If you’ve stuck with all the science and numbers throughout platelet week – good job, and thanks. We find it interesting, but, you know, it’s our jobs. The point, of course, is that there is a need that many people don’t know about or understand. As with whole blood donation, platelet needs can only be met by willing donors like yourself. So, how well are we meeting that need?

To have enough of a supply for all the trauma patients, all the people undergoing surgery, all the people undergoing cancer treatment, we need to draw about 25-30 units of platelets a day. Most days, we just don’t see that. There are plenty of days we only have a handful of appointments. 
Some of that is on us. We’ve shied away a little bit from talking to new folks about platelets, because, as you’ve seen, it’s a little more complicated to talk about. It’s also been a little more complicated to make your platelet appointments. 
But changes are here – this little series is the beginning of us spreading the word more effectively. And, finally, you can schedule your platelet appointments online!

So what do you say? Do you want to give it a try?

There are lots of upsides to platelet donation. If you’re athletically-inclined (or often think about exercising), there’s less impact on your exercise schedule than with whole blood. If you like to challenge yourself, or like to maximize how much you give back to your community, you can donate 24 times a year, rather than just 6 for whole blood. You can quickly become one of those folks that have donated 5, 10, 25, even 100 gallons, impacting and saving lots and lots of lives.

Bring a book, or your laptop or tablet – we have WiFi, so it’s time to catch up on your re-watching of Friends, or to finally commit to Stranger Things (totally worth it). We’ll give you a snuggly blanket, and, as always, all the cookies you might need. 
And, if you feel good about what you’ve done, become a regular, and educate and challenge your friends. You’ll be able to impact more lives than you could ever know.

Lots of fun with #prp today doing a full #prpfacelift .... This is where your own blood is drawn to extract the super components that assist with tissue regeneration and healing. When injected or combined with #microneedling the results yield firmer, smoother, more youthful looking skin.  Volume loss can be replaced and PRP is amazing for thinning hair. I only inject orthopedic grade concentrations to ensure you get the most out of your blood draw. I love and believe in regenerative medicine like no other. I believe stem cells are the way of the future and even get PRP injections into knee. Want to know more? DM me! I’ve got Christmas promotions happening ❤️❄️ 🎄 #dermnurse #prp #prpinjection #prphairrestoration #prphair #platelets #growthfactors #drprp #skinrejuvenation #antiaging #10yearsyounger #skincare #hairloss #prpfacial #plasticsurgery #cosmeticsurgery #aestheticnurse #atx #atxhair #austin #austintx #atxbeauty #atxskincare #blood #fnp #rns #npc

The equivalent of giving Christmas  presents to deserving recipients ... but this goes all year-round and is done for free.

These recipients are either cancer patients, victims of traumatic injuries, people who will receive organ or bone marrow transplants or patients undergoing open heart surgery.  They need platelet transfusion so they can survive.  Because platelet shelf life is very short the need for platelets is continuous.

Please try to take an hour or two out of your time to give a piece of your life and give it to those in most need of it.  A life is irreplaceable.

Micro-needling is the hottest skin treatment that you never heard of.  In the last several years, this odd-sounding treatment has morphed into an effective non-surgical treatment used to reverse wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration and skin laxity. The primary appeal of microneedling is its ability to stimulate growth of collagen and elastin, which is the key to new, youthful-looking skin. Book 2 treatments and save 20% off for the holiday season!! #waterdownlaserclinic #west5thmediaestheticlaserclinic. #PRP#stretchmarks #skinrejuvenation #acnescars #surgeryscars #wrinkles #hyperpigmentation #collagen #elastin #nonsurgical #vampirefacial #hairrestoration #growthcells #platelets #plasma #oakvilleontario #oakvillemoms #waterdown #waterdownmom #hamiltonontario #toronto #medicallabtech #medicalclinic #laserhairremoval

My holiday donation of plasma and I’m having the Bloodsource send it to the victims in the fire going on in Southern California. Also, today is a special day to donate for it would be my Grandma’s 82nd birthday. Happy birthday, Grandma. I miss you and love you so much. I hope and pray for the safety and well-being of those affected by the fire.

PRP injection for acne scars. This treatment harnesses the power of growth factors in your own blood to rejuvenate and correct the skin. The treatment is composed by a first phase of microneedeling followed by the injection in the acne scars with a very tiny needle.
Since PRP injections are made of your own plasma, there is no risk of allergic reaction. There is very minimal pain involved with PRP.
Some plumping of the skin can be seen immediately. For full results, expect up to three weeks to pass.
The number of treatments varies by patient. Typically, one to three injection sessions are recommended. Each treatment should be spaced four weeks.#prp#platelets #platelet #plateletrichplasmainjection #plateletrichplasma #biorevitalization #acne#acnescars#cicatricidaacne#chirurgiaplastica #chirurgiaestetica #chirurgiaplasticaroma #medicinaestetica #medicinaesteticaroma #studioreginamariapia #trattamentoacne#ostia#ostiabeach#estetica #esteticaroma#skin#skincare#dermicapen#microneedling #injection#growfactor

I always know when I'm leaking platelets in large amounts because I start bruising like this all over. It's quite painful. I've been massaging the bruise to return circulation to it. This is happening all over my legs, heading up and starting on my stomach and arms.

(Repost by @wearebloodtx) WARNING: The following contains science-y things. But give it a chance – it’s important!

Long story short, we need more platelet donors. Unfortunately, not everyone knows what the heck platelets even are, why they’re so important, or what’s different about donating platelets. So we’re hereby implementing what we’re unofficially calling PLATELET WEEK. It’s like Shark Week. Sort of. So, follow along this week as we answer all of the questions you never knew you had, about the platelets you might not have known you had.  FIRST: What even are platelets and what do they do? Dig back to high school science, and you might recall that your blood mainly consists of red blood cells, which carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of your body, and plasma, the liquid component, the nutrient- and chemical-rich river in which red blood cells go tubing. You probably also remember white blood cells, which help us fight infection, but big extra points if you remember platelets at all. The blood of a healthy, average person is about 45% red blood cells, 55% plasma, and about 1% white blood cells. Platelets are such a tiny percentage of your blood volume that we just count how many are in a microliter of blood. They’re actually tiny fragments of cells, all jagged and funky-looking compared to those pretty, round, red blood cells that are five times bigger. But you gotta have them at the party, if you want to keep all that plasma and red blood cells in your body. So please go donate those amazing platelets!!!! 💙❤️💙❤️ #weareblood #donate #platelets #bloodcenter #donateblood #giveback #helpothers

Currently on our way to go pick up my @roostuh at the airport! How cute is he? 😭😭😭 They said my platelets have to be at least 100,000 for surgery Thursday, and today without any infusion they’re 116,000! Yay praise the Lord. Asking all my friends to pray for my platelets to stay up. If you don’t know anything about platelets they help with blood clotting. Mine are normally under 50,000 which is a constant risk of internal bleeding. So it makes surgery even more high risk. BUT they’re naturally up high and I’m just hoping I don’t have to get a long infusion of meds. Thank you to all the love and support, and to all the people praying with faith for this to be a healthy and God glorifying surgery ❤️🙌🏼
