slight bleeding, dark bruising, swelling & pain after donating plasma. Also blood came out around the needle?
and blood pressure rose this may be why the blood came out around the needle. Need a quick and accurate answer.

I am a Medical Technologist. I worked in a blood band and have donated blood myself. You need to use an ice pack for several hours. The best thing you can use is a rice pack. Get a ziplock bag and put a couple of inches of rice in it. Put in freezer and then use. You need to make up 3 of them to rotate. While you are waiting for the rice pack to cool off use a ziplock with some ice in it if you do not have an ice pack. The rice forms to the body and does not seem as uncomfortable to me.
I am curious how high your blood pressure was. I have seen what you describe and the pressure is usually pretty high to cause this problem. Any time you donate blood the risk of a hematoma (bruise)is high. If the needle is large and if it goes through the back of the vein it will bruise pretty bad.

probably a vein collapse..will go away in a few days...i dont know about the blood pressure part of it because i dont know your history...but if your afraid of needles or something...your blood pressure CAN rise in relation to pain...

bruising is common with vessel destruction..it will repair over a few days...
