Blood Grouping & Rh factor

Blood typing is a test that determines a person’s blood type. The test is essential if you need a blood transfusion or are planning to donate blood. Not all blood types are compatible, so it is important to know your blood group to ensure that if you are given a transfusion your body doesn’t make antibodies to attack the donor blood

How to prepare for the test: 

No special preparation is needed for blood typing. If you think you might feel faint during the test, you may want to have someone else drive you home afterward.

What to Expect: 

Your blood type can be determined in a matter of minutes. Once you know your blood type, you can donate blood and receive transfusions from donors in the compatible blood groups.
