Blood Group Compatibility Chart for Blood Transfusions

This chart is intended to convey the compatibility issues during blood transfusion. It shows which group of blood can be safely transfused to which other blood groups. Safe blood transfusions depend on careful blood typing and cross-matching.

Blood Groups and Safe Blood Transfusions

Your ABO blood grouping and Rh factor are inherited from your parents. Blood is grouped into four types: A, B, AB, and O. Each type is also classified by an RH factor.Recipients can receive plasma of the same blood group, but otherwise the donor-recipient compatibility for blood plasma is the converse of that of RBCs: plasma extracted from type AB blood can be transfused to individuals of any blood group.The universal red cell donor has Type O negative blood type,and the universal plasma donor has Type AB positive blood type.When a blood transfusion is necessary, donor and patient blood must be compatible. If not, the patient’s body will react to the incompatible donor cells, leading to complications, this could lead to death.
Many patients had died and it was not until 1901, when the Austrian Karl Landsteiner discovered human blood groups, that blood transfusions became safer.
