The blood is kept in a "golden hour" box, which can keep four units of O-negative blood (which can be transfused into any patient) at a steady 4oC for up to 72 hours. Unused blood can be returned to hospital stores, so no stocks are wasted.
This is something I had not previously considered, but is another way that the emergency services can save the lives of bleeding accident victims at the scene.
This looks like a good reason to donate blood to ensure that it is available when needed.
