Can something go wrong by having a blood transfusion?
Yes, many things, blood transfusions can cause death if they give the wrong type, as of wrong blood group or of Rh positive to negative.
Also it is possible to be exposed to a bloodying pathogen such as HIV or hepatitis. Modern testing greatly reduces this risk, but there still remains a small risk. Blood typing/matching errors are extremely rare. There is always a risk (albeit small) any time you receive tissue into your body from another person whether it is blood, an organ, bone, skin, etc.
============= FROM THOMAS, --You might consider carefully the latest change of the use of Non-Blood-Surgery, medicine & therapy by the Dept. of Defense ( military): On the "Clinical Posters" web site this is stated by the Military: "U.S. Military Training for Bloodless Surgery" "Non-blood Medical management, once considered a fanatical patient view of Jehovah's Witnesses is now becoming the gold standard for surgery" (Answers.com does not permit web addresses for reference) ---
ALSO THE COMMITMENT by the Military with the Elmwood , New Jersey Hospital by the grant of some 4.6 million dollars with the Hospital for training & use of technology with their medical staff ! Their ground breaking activity has been in use for 15 yrs.
Why are people with O-negative blood the most at risk of being given the wrong type of blood during a blood transfusion?
Some symptoms of a mild transfusion reaction from getting the wrong blood are chills, fever, dizziness, flushed skin, back pain, and the presence of blood in urine. These symptoms can manifest when a person is receiving the transfusion or shortly after. In some cases, a person also can have a severe transfusion reaction that can cause symptoms like shock, decreased blood pressure, and a rapid pulse.
blood transfusion are when you have blood in a bag and you receive blood because you have lost a lot of blood and you have to make up for that blood.If you put the wrong type of blood in,it may give you a reaction because the blood will attack any kind f blood that you do not have,because it will think is an intruder.
If you are injured or have certain illness that needs blood they may receive a blood transfusion to replace lost blood, but before transfusion heath care workers must identify patients blood type. If the wrong blood type is given the persons, blood clumps and blocks tiny capillaries, oxygen does not get to cells, and without oxygen, cells die. If you are severely injured and need blood it saves time if they know your blood type…
If your blood type is (A-), you can receive blood from an (O-) donor. Conversely, an (A-) donor's blood can be used by recipients with (A+); (A-); (AB+); and (AB-) blood types. Source: American Red Cross In terms of life expectancy after having received a blood transfusion, I called the American Red Cross and the woman that took my call provided me with valuable information. She, herself, had received a bood tranfusion in 1990 at…
it is rare, but yes. however, blood poisoning is possible and the child could have to have a full blood transfusion if the mother doesn't take pills that the doctor prescribes for the mother if they realize that something is wrong. no, your blood type is in your DNA, and that comes from both parents only, each child gets 50% DNA from each parent.
In a blood transfusion bag why are there two iv set inlets and why do you have two cut plastic wire ends?
BLOOD TRANSFUSION MY WIFE HAD more than one transfusion, and from what I remember, the extra inlets allowneedles to add drugs if needed and also extra in case one fails. The wires are safetyprecautions. They are connected to serial numbers that are also printed on the patients wristband. TWO nurses have to start a transfusion. One nurse reads the serial numbers on the patient and the other nurse reads the serial numbers on the bagsand…
Is something wrong when there is a small amount of blood after intercourse but the man is not too big and the sex is not rough?
If incompatible blood is given in a transfusion, the donor cells are treated as if they were foreign invaders, and the patient's immune system attacks them accordingly. Not only is the blood transfusion rendered useless, but a potentially massive activation of the immune system and clotting system can cause shock, kidney failure, circulatory collapse, and death. The doctor would just try to prevent hese from happening.
NO because your blood cells will see it as a threat and start attacking it, which is now your own blood- not a very good thing! However O is the 'universal' doner so it can be used on a person with any blood type. Clarification: Not always. Doctors can treat mismatched blood transfusion, sometimes by doing a whole body transfusion of the correct type. This is a serious thing, and should be avoided at all…
It certainly is possible; a snake bite is an example of injection of mostly proteins. Another example is an injection of vaccine against most diseases. Whether it is a good thing or not, is another matter. Injection of the wrong protein, even a protein that is safe to eat or spread on your skin, might easily kill you. For example, a blood transfusion is mostly protein and if the blood type is not properly matched…
Well, if he's getting a transfusion, then apparently he's in a hospital. When it's discovered he got the wrong type, a physician trained in that specialty must rush to infuse his body with the correct type, all the while draining out all the blood already in his system, until all the old blood is gone and the correct type has replaced it. Receiving the wrong type blood can be dangerous or fatal.
