Do you know your blood type or that of a close family member? Statista says it might surprise you to learn that an awful lot of people have no idea, and even less know how compatible their blood type is with others if it were to come to an emergency. Today’s chart (using data from the American Society of Hematology) shows there can be very big differences in the number of blood types your body can give or receive in the case of a blood transfusion. As always, stay safe and have a Happy Friday!
“Safe, reliable source of blood is critical to providing effective blood products to recipients, blood banks are dependent on the altruistic voluntary donations of citizens. As a result, blood banks place great emphasis on making the donation process pleasant, convenient, and as safe as possible for donors.”
