Basic : Basic rules for donors are established by the U.S. Food and drug administration (fda). Some donor centers may impose additional requirements. You must be in good health and you must provide information about your health. Your blood pressure, heart rate and temperature are checked. Additionally your blood will be checked for anemia.
