ALthough there is some fun in knowing and comparing blood types with friends and family members, the process of identifying blood types is much more important than most people realize, and the degree of importance would usually depend on the needs of an individual.
Should you or your family members meet an accident, the need for extra bags of blood can turn into a life-and-death situation. Every moment counts and you need to quickly identify who can donate blood and who can’t.
Someone in need of emergency blood supplies usually gets this from family members or relatives as they often make good matches. The blood that needs to be transfused must match with the blood type that the patient has, and the donor must be healthy to be able to give blood without compromising his own health.
