Before the procedure, the potential donors had their health checked. Doctors measured the blood pressure and hemoglobin level. Then, the specialists of the blood transfusion station took 450 milliliters of blood from a specialized donor chair.

"Donor blood is necessary for people whose lives are in danger, but, unfortunately, every year there are fewer donors in Russia, and there is a constant shortage of donor blood. Each of us, passing the procedure of blood donation, is able to save the lives of people in trouble," - said the Head of the EMERCOM Main Office for the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic Mikhail Nadezhin.
