Why is Type B Blood so Important
Millions of people – including trauma patients, burn patients, cancer patients, and people with certain diseases – benefit from blood transfusions each year. For the transfusion to do its lifesaving work, hospital staff must ensure that the blood being given is compatible with the patient’s own blood type. For more information on what blood types are compatible download the blood compatibility chart here. Your blood type is inherited from your parents, much like your eye and hair color.
