The Mount Sinai Health System has initiated a procedure known as plasmapheresis. Antibodies from patients who have recovered from COVID-19 can be transferred to critically ill patients to help them fight the disease. This process was used successfully in China, according to a state-owned organization, with some patients improving within 24 hours.
If you had COVID-19, your blood may contain these antibodies. Mount Sinai is seeking volunteers in the Five Towns area to have their blood tested.
- You tested positive 21 days or more ago
- You have been symptom free (no fever, shortness of breath, chills, cough or sore throat) for 14 days
If you qualify to donate, we will call you to schedule an appointment for a blood draw at our Mount Sinai Doctors Five Towns practice.
