Featured: Blood Transfusion Main Article

During a blood transfusion, blood or blood products are transferred from one person to another. There are two types of transfusions, autologous (your own blood), and donor blood (someone else's blood). There are four blood types:

  1. A;
  2. B;
  3. C; and
  4. O.
In addition, each person's blood is either Rh-positive or Rh-negative. It is important to know what to expect before, during, and after a blood transfusion, and the risk factors or complications of a blood transfusion.
