Did you know that blood is an organ?

Did you know that there are all these laws on organ harvesting? Selling organs? That kind of thing...

It's interesting from a public-private sort of a thing...

I mean, on the one hand, a lot of work needs to go into preparing things. That's the case with biology generally. I mean... The work that goes into collecting antibodies from blood donations and then purifying them, getting rid of the other things in the sample that could be harmful. Then storing them. All the work... All the labor. All the costs and the technologies involved in it being possible to do anything with them at all...

But some people are organ donors...

And some people are organ recipients...

And some people give 'donations' to St Johns so that they are delivered to the hospital in a timely fashion and some other people don't... So... St John's sends ambulance officers into their homes (if teh officers arrive at all) to bully them out of this silly notion of going anywhere... Or St John's involuntarily detains them in the back of the ambulance in the name of the ER being 'full' or...

Our blood goes to Australia for processing. Melbourne. I don't know what comes back. I don't know where it resides.

I went to a talk about how when there seemed to be an opportunity to aquire blood they would take it. That is to say if someone presented in crisis and they may need blood units they would ask for blood units for them. Teh units would not arrive in time for them to use them on that patient... But now they would be arrived. And therefore stored locally. For someone else to use...

The private hospitals have blood units. I suppose.

Who are the donors, then?

I think... I'm not actually sure how it goes in NZ. I think they are sort of wanting it to be 'invitation only'. That is to say they have some drives... But mostly there are a small group of donors who regularly donate. I suppose with the expectation (reasonable or not I don't know) that blood products may be available to them if they need them.

There was like one lady who had... I think she had 2 kidney transplants that failed and then her brother was going to donate his for a 3rd attempt.

I don't know how she gets to have 3 in the public sector while so many other people never get 1.

We have a lot of corruption in our public hospitals. A lot of using public resources for private advantage.

I do worry in the US I think lately a lot of private hosptials have become interested in public things lately because they are seeing a potential to... Really use public things for private advantage. Immunisations. But more than that. Blood products. But why stop there? Other organs... And so on...
