Can Someone Who Has Blood Type A Get Blood With Blood Type B?
hello .. good morning:) r nwant to ask, if someone has blood type A, given blood from type B donors, then what happens? please explain … r nthank you 🙂
Hello Zawa, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com
A person who has blood type A may only get blood with blood type A, or if it is not available, blood with blood type O can also be given. A person with blood type A has antigen A on the surface of his red blood cells and has antibody B on his blood plasma. A person with blood type B has B antigens on the surface of his red blood cells and has antibody A on his blood plasma.
If someone with blood type A (recipient) gets blood with blood type B, then antibody B in the recipient's blood plasma will react with the B antigen in the newly given blood. These antibodies will recognize the blood as a foreign substance that must be destroyed, so that there will be destruction of red blood cells in the newly given blood. In addition to the blood given to be useless (because the red blood cells are destroyed or hemolysis), there can also be a massive immune system reaction that can cause shock, kidney disorders, and can cause death.
Therefore giving blood transfusions must be done very carefully. The following article you can read about the risk of blood transfusion
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
