Tho D. This is one reason why platelet donations take longer than other donations; allow yourself two hours for the donation process. Although platelet donations are more involved than the others, it is also very important that we constantly get platelets; a unit of platelets only lasts for five days. So, patients in need of platelets may need a unit of platelets every few days.
These patients include those who have been treated for leukemia with chemotherapy and cannot make their own platelets for weeks or months. Medical technicians will recommend the number of units of platelets you can donate based on your weight, hemoglobin level and platelet count that day, adds Pham. Blood can stay good refrigerated for up to 42 days — much longer than platelets. Don't miss: The real reason going to the doctor gives you anxiety.
