Health chiefs are appealing for help due to the shortage of one type of blood.
Ideally the Scottish Blood Transfusion service aims to maintain at least six days stock of each blood group, however levels for O- are down to just four days.
Stocks of this blood group are vital for use in emergencies as it can be given to almost every patient.
Around 9.5% of the population in Scotland have this blood type.
