Blood Transfusion Information

Bood transfusion is a process of blood transfer or blood components from one person (the donor) to another person (recipient). Sometimes it is necessary that the blood loss immediately be compensated or to temporarily reinforce the resistance. Sometimes half a liter or a liter of blood in the vein given on time is a lifesaver. Blood transfusions can be used in the treatment of serious anemia or thrombocytopenia caused by a blood disease. People who suffer from hemophilia or sickle cell anemia usually need frequent blood transfusion to be performed.
