Abstract Approximately 3\% to 3.5\% of the US population donates whole blood each year. Physicians might be approached by a blood donor because of a donor suitability issue, a positive postdonation test, or a donation-related complication. Approximately 83\% of blood donors successfully donate; but 13\% are rejected because of a donor suitability issue; 1\% have a positive test, which is often nonspecific or false-positive; and 2\% to 4\% of the phlebotomies are not successful. The most common adverse physical events based on donor interviews are bruise (23\%), sore arm (10\%), fatigue (8\%), and vasovagal reaction (7\%), while uncommon events include nerve irritation (0.9\%), syncope (0.1-0.3\%), and arterial puncture (0.01\%). One in 3400 donors (0.033\%) report seeking outside medical care. Serious injuries occur but are very rare. More often, blood donors do well and feel satisfied with the blood donation experience.
