What may a health worker check before you donate blood?
Studies have indicated that volunteer whole blood donors begin experiencing adverse reactions (weakness, nausea, vomiting, syncope, etc) when blood loss exceeds 15% of total b…lood volume. As such, FDA recommendations, listed below, are in place to assure that less than 15% is collected from volunteer blood donors. Current FDA guidelines allow a maximum of 10.5 ml/kilogram body weight of whole blood to be collected every eight weeks. The majority of blood collection facilities use 500 ml whole blood bags, with an additional 50 ml (10%) allowed to be drawn for mandated screening tests. This volume equates with a lower body weight for blood donation of 110 lbs or more (with acceptable hematocrit/hemoglobin levels). Double red cell donation by apheresis technology may collect 500-550 ml of red cells at a single donation IF the donor meets body mass and hematocrit eligibility criteria. Double red cell donors must wait 112 days before their next blood donation attempt (any type).http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_much_blood_can_a_person_donate&action=edit

Because herpes is not blood borne, there is no need to test for herpes when donating blood. According to the Australian red cross Q and A Herpes - I have genital herpes. Can… I donate? Yes, provided you are not currently suffering a current episode. Any lesions from a recent episode must be clean and dry.
When you donate blood you will fill out a questionnaire that will ask questions to determine if you are capable or able to give blood. 1) should not be on doctor-prescribed …medication. 2) Chemo Therapy 3) Medications for hemophelia ( blood clotting medications) 4) Narcotics 5) Alcohol Check with your local blood bank for a complete list of substances that will ban you from giving blood. This is a great response...however...most doctor-prescribed medications (i.e. blood pressure, thyroid, birth control, allergy, etc.) are fine. Like it's stated above, check with your local blood bank to be sure.
