"Blood Shortage Eases -- SlightlyThe region's blood supply remains critically low, though inventory has improved slightly from the dire levels of two weeks ago. The Greater Chesapeake & Potomac Region of the American Red Cross still has less than a day's supply of one blood type, and less than two days' supply of another, spokesman Shaun Adamec said yesterday.
Donors can make an appointment by calling 800-GIVE-LIFE. In the days after the Independence Day holiday, distribution to area hospitals was extremely limited. At one point, only two units of type B blood was available for an emergency call. 'That couldn't have even helped one patient,' Adamec said."
