why is blood grouping necessary for blood transfusion


Blood grouping is important for the transfusion of blood and donation of organs. Before blood transfusion, the Rh factor, as well as the blood group of the donor and the recipient have to be matched. The blood group of the donor must be compatible with the recipient's blood, otherwise it may lead to serious consequences (clotting) for the patient that may be dangerous or even fatal.

Dear Student,
The accurate grouping of blood is very important when it comes to having a blood transfusion. If blood is given to a patient that has a blood type that is incompatible with the blood type of the blood that the patient receives, it can cause intravenous clumping in the patient’s blood which can be fatal.
