Abstract

In order to determine the association between gender, age, body mass index and vital signs among healthy plateletapheresis donors, the mean and median values from the most recent donations of 236 plateletapheresis donors were calculated for age, body mass index (BMI), oral temperature, blood pressure (BP), and pulse. Values of these parameters were compared after stratification by gender, age, and BMI and multiple regression analysis between parameters performed. Gender, age, and BMI were associated with significant differences in vital signs of healthy plateletapheresis donors.
