Why is Type A Blood so Important
The importance of knowing your blood type is to prevent the risk of receiving an incompatible blood type if a transfusion is needed. If the wrong blood types are mixed, it can lead to a clumping of blood cells that can be potentially fatal. A blood transfusion can be needed for many reasons, including: surgeries, cancer treatment, traumatic injuries, delivery difficulties during labor, and anemia.
