How much time does it take you to give a pint of blood?

Not from the time you walk in 'till the time you walk out.

The actual time it takes for your body to drain a pint of blood.

I give blood every two months. And I'm almost fanatical
about keeping accurate records and when I go in to give
blood it's no exception; always record my blood pressure,
body temperature, and resting pulse and how long it takes
me to give a pint of blood.

I have been told that hydration is one of the, if not the
biggest factor in how much time it takes. Being young
does not hurt, great veins helps (I have these) and squeezing
that ball they give you helps but I thinks it's mostly to give
you something to do.

Today was 7.5 minutes. It's been as low as 7, as high as 11.

Is it just me or does anybody else keep track of these sorts
of things?

What are your times?

Alfresco:

It would take 20 minutes. Due mainly to taking Lasix daily and BP lowering meds with COREG. I am always concerned on how long it take me to even fill a couple of vials! I feel like rolling my thumb down the vein like a tube of toothpaste to help it go faster.

I asked the nurse about this the other day when I was giving blood. She said men average about 6-8 minutes, and women a bit longer (I think she said 8-10?).

Seems a little OCD to me to keep up with that. BTW I donate once every 55 days.
