A person with type O blood can only get a transfusion using type O blood. Someone with type A or B blood, however, can get a transfusion with their own type blood or with type O blood, which is known as a universal blood type.

People are rarely infected with HIV through blood transfusion now. Scientists have not always known what HIV was or how to detect it. During this time, many people were infected with HIV as a result of blood transfusion. Thankfully, now every blood sample collected is tested for a variety of diseases, including HIV.

Blood received in a transfusion must have the same antigens. Type O blood does not have any antigens present were as A, B, and AB do. If you get a transfusion that has different antigens (incompatible blood), the antibodies in your plasma will destroy the donor blood cells. This is called a transfusion reaction, and it occurs immediately when incompatible blood is transfused. A transfusion reaction can be mild or cause a serious illness and even death. If this may occur, an immunosuppressant can be given (in most cases) to save the patient.

Regardless of you blood type, should you need an emergency blood transfusion is needed and the recipient's blood type is not known, anyone can receive type O- blood. Type O- blood (which has no antigen on its surface) will not react with antibodies in the recipient's plasma. Anyone with type O- blood is called a universal donor.

O positive is a rare blood type. There are very few complications with this blood type that are known. If a person has O blood type then they can receive any type of blood transfusion.

The most common type of blood is O positive. This type of blood is known as the universal donor because neither A nor B antigens are found on the surface of the red blood cells and this type of blood therefore can be given to an individual with any blood type in need of transfusion.

While type O blood is known as being the universal donor, it is not a universal recipient. Type O blood can be transfused into any other blood type, but someone with type O blood could only receive a transfusion of type O blood.

The only known cause for a human being to have no blood is drainage, which either causes death or can be performed post mortem.

It produces what is known as a transfusion reaction. The blood cells burst open and cause pain, difficulty breathing, shakes, and sweating. If it is severe it can cause organ failure, cardiovascular collapse and death.

Normal Human Blood is used for transfusions but now the medical world is starting to see the dangers of using Blood and the advantages of using Blood substitutes (non Blood products) and also what is also known as Bloodless surgical methods too, these methods were brought to the limelight due to the fact of close cooperation with the Jehovah's Witnesses due to their stance on Blood.

For Hepatitis A, the usual cause is when the food that we intake has been infected with the virus, thus the transmission is called feco-oral. For Hepatitis B and D, also known as Parenteral Hepatitis, it is transmitted through blood, such as when individuals share needles, or by blood transfusion when the blood used is not properly screened.

No. At one time, type O negative blood was considered the universal blood donor type. This implied that anyone — regardless of blood type — could receive type O negative blood without risking a transfusion reaction. But it's now known that even type O negative blood may have antibodies that cause serious reactions during a transfusion.

Chagas disease is mostly spread through insects known as kissing bugs. It can also be spread through blood transfusion, from a mother to an unborn child and through eating contaminated food.

Not exactly. Human blood may have positive (ca. 80%) or negative (remaining 20%) Rhesus factor. It means that that a substance known as Rhesus factor is either found or not in a human blood test. Transfusion of "positive" blood to a "negative" recipient may result in very negative consequences (but not vise versa) . A problem known as Rhesus conflict may arise when a Rhesus-negative woman is pregnant with a Rhesus-positive baby.The name Rhesus factor comes from Rhesus monkey in which it was first found.

The clumping of blood is known as a blood clot. :)

Arthur Ash was a well known African-American tennis professional. During surgery he contracted the HIV virus from a blood transfusion and died from AIDS. He was instrumental in helping the ethnic integration in tennis.

It is thought that the very first magic trick was performed by Merlin the great who did exist. He performed old parler trick known as the magic cups.

They use the same blood type because other wise the body will reject the Donor type. It has to do with protein markers. There are universal donors who can give blood to anyone, these are people with an O blood type. There is also the Universal recipient which is someone with Ab blood type. Alot of blood banks have gone to using what is known as Plasma. It is derived from blood donations and is not subject to rejection from the recipient.

William Harvey was best known for explaining blood circulation. People back then thought blood was pumped from the liver so he was the first one to discover that the heart pumped blood.

Yes, although ABO and Rh are the main causes of haemolytic transfusion reactions (HTR's), if a person with an anti-K antibody is transfused with red blood cells which have a kell antigen on their surface, it has been known to cause delayed HTR's through the supression of erythropoiesis. As for haemolytic disease of the newborn, it is thought that anti-K can cause HDN vie anaemia, not jaundice.

I believe the first baptisms were performed by John the Baptist in the river.

This is for the process known as "blood doping," which is almost always prohibited under athletic competition rules.The athletes are trying to gain an advantage over other athletes by increasing the amount of oxygen their bodies can deliver to the muscles in a competition. The body ordinarily regulates the number of red blood cells that are maintained in the blood. But they can artificially increase this number before a competition (such as a race) by receiving a transfusion of their own red blood cells that were previously removed.They have their blood drawn weeks before the race, and separate out the red blood cells (constituent known as PRBC for packed red blood cells). The day of the race, they get back a transfusion of these cells, and it takes a few days for the body to remove the excess cells. In the meantime, they can run farther or faster with this additional oxygen-carrying capability.Along with drugs that stimulate red blood cell production, this process risks several metabolic conditions. High cell counts, known as polycythemia, can result in slower blood flow and excessive strain on the heart.

The British Royal Family have been known to donate blood. There is no ban on them donating blood, and in the past, Princes Charles, Andrew and William have donated blood publicly during visits to hospitals and transfusion centres. Those who have served in the armed forces (Charles, Andrew, William and Harry, as well as the Queen herself during WW2) have had to give blood whilst on active service on the front line.
