What would you like to do?
A human body holds 3 liters of blood. These means that one can have up to 3 liters of blood transfused into theÊbody. Typically, it is only 1 or 2 liters of blood that will beÊgiven at a transfusion.

The average human has 8-12 pints in their body.
Blood makes up about 7% of your body's weight. The average adult has 10 pints of blood in his or her body. One unit of blood is roughly the equivalent of one pint.… This proportion is much greater in children, and slightly different in men and women. Men, on average, have 8 to 10 pints, while women have 5 to 8 pints. That is just over a gallon or 4 - 5 liters for men and slightly less for women. Larger people and populations can go much higher, up to 8-12 pints depending on the size of the person.
About 6 quarts
8-12 pints depending on the size of the person. Actually about 5 litre of blood is present in a normal human body It varies by age and weight, but the "standard" a…nswer is 6 liters, or about a gallon and a half.
How much blood is needed for the human body to survive Can it survive on saline or any other fluid besides blood Am told blood transfusions are totally unnecessary-- true or false?
Answer No one can live with out blood. Blood is the essential thing in human life. The average amount of blood is 4-5 quarts (liters) in female adult humans, and 5-6 qu…arts (liters) in human adult males. This is about 8% of total body weight. There are some experimental studies in the UK, where they exchange blood for a saline liquid at near freezing temperatures, in order to perform operations on pets that can last as long as an hour. It has not yet been tried on humans.
Approximately 8 pints in an adult.
The total blood volume in the average adult is approximately 60-65 ml/kilogram body weight. Children have approximately 70 ml/kilogram body weight and obese patients approxima…tely 55ml/kilogram body weight.http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_much_blood_do_humans_have&action=edit
What will happen to the human body if there was a blood transfusion and there was a mismatch in blood group?
There may be issues
Last time I gave blood, they take 470mls of blood, plus four test tubes partially filled as samples for testing. Some tests would be to check I don't have any disease, others… for lab tests I suppose.
1 pint i think
Depends on how big a person it is, a 2 meter overweight guy of a skinny midget makes a difference. But about 6 liter is average I believe
I have found different units have different amounts. Usually less than 300 mL is the standard. Last week I gave two units-one of which had 252 mL and the other had 267 mL.
The answer depends on the clinical situation. In examples of extreme trauma, there are many documented cases where hundreds of blood components have been transfused during the… course of treatment until the bleeding is finally controlled. In these cases, clotting factors must be monitored to prevent dilutional coagulation deficiencies and patient temperature maintained following the infusion of large volumes of cold blood products. In non-hemorrhaging patients, the volume of transfused produced must be monitored to prevent non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema. When total transfused products approach one total blood volume, then the term "massive transfusion" is used.
What will be the effect on human body if transfusion of o negative blood group is given to o positive blood group human being?
Nothing, O negative blood is the universal donor. Everyone can receive it without complications.
