AB positive blood type is known as the universal recipient which means that persons with AB positive blood can recieve transfusions from any blood type, positive or negative. Generally, transfusions of the same blood type or of blood type O can be given. Persons with blood types that are RH positive can be given transfusions of either the positive OR negative subtype, but persons with RH negative blood types can only receive transfusions from other RH negative blood types.

Chemotherapy, radiation and some diseases such as aplastic anemia and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) can cause unsafe low levels of blood cells. Using donated blood, transfusions are a way to temporarily increase the number of blood cells. There are different types of blood transfusions to match the types of blood cells a patient may need.Many patients get blood transfusions after a bone marrow or cord blood transplant. These could be transfusions of red blood cells, platelets, or rarely, white blood cells.Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body.White blood cells help fight infection.Platelets help control bleeding.Red blood cell transfusion+ Platelet transfusion+ White blood cell transfusion+ What to expect during transfusions+ Blood transfusion side effects and risks+ Talk with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about blood transfusions.

Yes. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the 'Mormon' church) accept and use modern medicine. They have absolutely no problem with blood transfusions. Many Mormon congregations host regular blood drives to assist local hospitals in providing blood transfusions.

Yes, it's permitted in Judaism. Jehovah's Witnesses, a denomination of Christianity, is the only major religious group that objects to blood transfusions.

Most patients who have a major surgical procedure, will have a blood transfusion to replace any blood loss during their surgery. Blood transfusions are used for patients whom have experienced serious injuries from car crashes or natural disasters. Individuals with an illness that causes anemia, such as leukemia or kidney disease will often be the recipients of blood transfusions.

Very effective - Most transfusions are done to replace blood lost during operations or accidents etc. The purpose is to restore the patients blood pressure back to normal levels once the reason for the loss has been addressed. Many transfusions to restore blood pressure are done with plasma rather than 'whole blood'.

Christians views on blood transfusions are that the bible does not say whether its right or not but they believe that if there are 4 blood types then maybe its suggesting that God would want us to give and receive blood to those who need it.

No they are highly against it; Jehovah's Witnesses only accept non-blood based transfusions and expanders.
