CJTH Blood Bank provides life force in trauma

Spc. Lauren O'Neal, 153rd Blood Support Detachment medical laboratory technician, uses a hemosealer to seal blood bag tubing attached to a platelet donor at Craig Joint Theater Hospital on Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, Dec. 31, 2015. In order to extract platelets, a critical life-saving blood component, blood is drawn using an apheresis machine which separates and returns the unused portions of blood to the donor.
