Published

PHUKET: The Phuket Regional Blood Center (PRBC), often called upon to save the lives of Thais and foreigners, has no reserves of O-negative type blood.

“We try to maintain a daily minimum stock of 200 units of A, B and O blood types, and 20 units of Rhesus-negative blood,” said PRBC Acting Chief Pornthip Rattajak.

“We need all types of blood, but right now have a special need for O-negative as we have patients waiting for surgery who need O-negative blood,” she added.
