Recommendations after the donation

After donating blood, it is important that you note the following suggestions:

  • In the next few hours, drink more fluid than usual, and continue with your regular eating schedule.
  • Do not smoke at least 4 hours after donating.
  • If bleeding in the puncture site, press with cotton and raise the arm from 3 to 5 minutes. If this problem persists, please go to the Blood Bank.
  • If you experience dizziness or lightheadedness, sit or lie down, trying to keep your feet higher than the head, this for at least 5 minutes.
  • It is recommended to not exceed in intense physical activity, because you will get tired quickly.
