here is how I do it...
Here is a shot across the room, I usually go pretty late in the day when there are not that many people there
Here is a shot from my section
Here is a shot of them taking my blood
Here is a shot of the machine that gets the plasma. Plasma is a yellow, almost urine looking liquid, that is part of the blood. This machine pumps the blood out of vein, and takes your blood in cycles, each time filling that container. 1 donation usually takes about 10-12 cycles. Once the machine takes the plasma out of the blood, it pumps it back into your vein, and starts the next cycle. At the end, they pump a saleen solution back into your vein to compensate for all the missing plasma. They pump this back in at room temp, 70*, so when it goes into your body which is 98.6*, it feels like ICE!
