The difference between blood types has to do with the type of antigens on the red blood cells (RBC's) and the type of antibodies present in the blood.
For example, type A blood has the A antigen on the RBC, and the B antibody present in the blood. It is the opposite for type B.
Type AB has both A and B antigens on the RBC and there are no antibodies present. This is for this reason why a person with type AB blood can accept any type of blood into their body (it is called the universal receiver) but can only give blood to a person with type AB blood.
Type O blood is the opposite of AB blood. Type O contains the antibody for both A and B blood but has no antigens on the RBC's and it is for this reason as to why a person with type O blood can only receive type O blood, but anybody can take type O into their body, type O is the universal donor.
RH- and RH+ are not blood types, they are factors.
If you have A+ or A- blood type, this means you have type "A" antigens on the surface of your red blood cells, as well as "B" antibodies in your blood plasma.B blood types have type "B" antigens, and so on.
O+ blood types can donate blood to anyone. O- blood types (for females) have to get this shot when they are pregnant. (I don't wanna be a O- blood type girl anymmore...) :(
Doctors can determine positive or negative blood types by administering a test. The difference between positive and negative types is the presence of the RH factor. Positive blood types indicate the presence of the RH factor while negative blood types do not have this factor.
