Bautzen. Anyone who depends on a blood donation in the Bautzen district usually gets them.

Long COVID: How clusters of symptoms have emerged and changed over the pandemic

  Long COVID: How clusters of symptoms have emerged and changed over the pandemic Under the broad "long COVID" umbrella, clusters of symptoms have emerged, and as the pandemic has worn on, those symptoms have changed.While long COVID has no strict definition, it's generally used to describe an illness following a SARS-CoV-2 infection with symptoms that last at least two to three months.

Last year around 3,700 blood and plasma concentrate were administered in both hospitals. In Hoyerswerda there are up to 1,700 a year. The supply of blood is difficult in the St. Johannes hospital in Kamenz, but can be guaranteed, says press spokeswoman Stephanie Hänsch. The hospital uses around 800 canned blood a year.

blood transfusions, especially during operations. Cancer patients and people with heart, stomach or intestinal diseases are often dependent on foreign blood, according to the German Red Cross (DRK).

is the most sought-after blood group at the same time the scarce

The DRK blood donation service North-East takes around 9,000 blood donations in the Bautzen district annually, says press spokeswoman Kerstin Schweiger. Despite pandeme -related restrictions, the number has remained the same in recent years. Overall, the blood donation service North-East, which organized blood donations throughout Saxony, had removed less blood in pandemic. Many appointments and donors have failed due to contact restrictions and infections, says Schweiger.

"There were much fewer donors due to the pandemic and therefore also much less available," says Gernot Schweitzer. Like the other hospitals in the district, the clinic in Hoyerswerda receives its blood cannon directly from the DRK blood donation service. In order to use the donated blood sparingly, patients with too little blood are always treated with medication before foreign blood is used, says Stephanie Hänsch from the hospital in Kamenz.

Ally Behan who died from meningococcal after Spilt Milk festival saves lives with organ donation

  Ally Behan who died from meningococcal after Spilt Milk festival saves lives with organ donation Ally Behan's family made the heartbreaking decision to turn off her life support on the weekend, after she became severely ill after attending the Spilt Milk music festival in Canberra on November 26. Days after the teen returned to her home in the tight-knit coastal town of Manyana, on NSW's south coast, Ms Behan started experiencing gastro-like symptoms, which quickly turned into something more sinister. Ms Behan's mum rushed her to Canberra Hospital but her condition quickly deteriorated and was on life life support last week, and by Sunday she was showing no brain activity.

Blood is not the same as blood. "In patients with previous transfusions or rare blood groups, it can be very difficult to find a suitable cannibalven," says Reiner E. Rogowski. A well-filled blood depot also helps to a limited extent. "Unfortunately, the most versatile can be negative, blood group 0 Rhesus, even the scarce."

more older people, more need for blood donation

The need for blood transfusions increases, says Hänsch. The reason is the demographic change. There are more and more older people who are increasingly needing foreign blood. "Demographic change is an enormous challenge," says Rogowski. Many donors are also older. They will be eliminated in the next few years and may need foreign blood themselves. Now it is about mobilizing more people for the donation, says the managing director of the Oberlausitz clinics.
