Does it matter, geographically, where we get a Blood transfusion? Take a look at the following chart. In an analysis of United States statistics from 1994 to 1995, based on the likelihood of contracting commonly cataloged Blood borne, that is, transfusion transmitted, diseases, the answer is clearly yes. We hope and believe that this number has improved, but we have no updated statistics.

Interstate and inter-region transportation and exchange of Blood and Blood products is surely changing these statistics. We feel that this information is important. Further, in the opinion of BloodBook.com, Blood Plasma pooling will likely have an ever greater effect on averaging out the risks to the same in all regions.
