Plasma Donation Awareness

  • A study states that plasma therapy is effective when administered within the first week of symptoms.
  • Another study mentions that it reduces hospital stay and addresses lower oxygen levels. This is particularly better as it might curb the need for a ventilator.
  • For the critically ill patients, plasma therapy improves clinical condition and decreases mortality rate.
  • Research states that significant improvement was noted for the convalescent plasma treatment group compared to controls in the subgroup of patients without life-threatening COVID-19 (91% improvement in the plasma group compared to 68% in the control arm).
  • Dr Vishal Rao (Chief of Head & Neck Surgical Oncology & Robotic Surgery at HCG Cancer Centre, Bengaluru) has prescribed plasma therapy to over 1,000 patients and claimed that 60% of them benefited from it.
