How Does Apheresis Work?
Apheresis separates the blood into these components while the donor is still connected to the separation device. A rotating centrifuge or a rotating belt separates the donor’s whole blood into its components based on density.
What To Expect When Undergoing Apheresis?
The patient sits in a comfortable chair and can watch television while undergoing the process. Apheresis can take from two to four hours, depending on the patient’s illness and what component needs to be collected.
As with regular blood donations, apheresis is generally painless. Still, there may be some side effects, such as discomfort in the arm where the needle is inserted, lightheadedness, sweating, or a drop in blood pressure.
