  • Understanding The Abo And Rh Blood Types Essay

    1115 Words  | 5 Pages

    order to identify blood types; learning about the function and shapes of different blood components; and understanding the importance of blood typing and its uses. In the world of medicine, knowing about blood typing and, more importantly, having the ability to type blood is an indispensable tool. Medical procedures ranging from blood transfusions to organ transplants to obstetrical interventions require a solid understanding of blood typing. Being able to understand the ABO and Rh blood types is a fundamental

  • The International Society Of Blood Transfusion ( Isbt )

    1389 Words  | 6 Pages

    Chapter I 1- GENERAL INTRODUCTION 1-1 Overview of human blood groups The term blood group is usually restricted to blood cell surface antigens, and generally to red cell surface antigens. These antigens are molecules present on the red blood cells membrane, which can trigger an immune response if they are foreign to the body. Landsteiner and his colleagues (1, 2), discovered the first blood group system (ABO) in 1901, they observed that plasma from some individuals agglutinated the red cells

  • Human Blood Type Inheritance

    Human Blood Type Inheritance Introduction The blood grouping systems commonly used include the ABO system that was first described by Karl Landsteiner. The discovery of blood grouping systems helped to avoid unnecessary death emanating from blood transfusion. The basics of blood grouping systems lie behind the inheritance of genes. The possession and inheritance of blood groups attribute to the parents who combine alleles responsible for the blood groups. The parents thus play a pivotal role in

  • The Detection Of Clinically Significant Antibodies

    crucial step in pre-transfusion testing. There are more than 300 human blood groups, all of which can cause an incompatibility reaction. (Knight 2012) Exposure to incompatible blood groups can also lead to the production of alloantibodies. The two most clinically significant human blood groups are the ABO group and the Rh group. Both of these systems can cause severe and often fatal transfusion reactions, and in the case of the Rh group, due to an incompatibility between mother and the unborn child, it

  • The Blood Type And Anti Rh Serums

    determine the blood types of the samples given and to learn what interactions occurred to each blood type. Determining an individual’s blood type and how it reacts with Anti A, Anti-B, and Anti Rh serums played a crucial part in this experiment. The researcher concluded that agglutination (clumping) occurred in some of the blood samples. For example, Mr. Smith’s blood reacted with Anti-A and Anti-Rh serums (antibodies) allowing the researcher to determine the blood type is A. Mr. Jones’s blood reacted

    The ABO blood types play an integral role in conducting blood transfusions. Blood is “a complex, living tissue that contains many cell types and proteins” (green). The average adult body is comprised of more than five liters of blood (purple). Blood basically consists of four components, each with a specific function. Almost half of the blood volume is red blood cells, which transport oxygen and other nutrients to the organs and tissues, as well as remove carbon dioxide and other wastes. White blood

    INTRODUCTION Blood Typing: By identifying the blood group of a person, we can determine which blood can transfuse in the time of need. Blood Alcohol: The breathalyzer method is used to get the alcohol content in the blood. Anatomical Positions: Learning the anatomical position, it helps to find the proper location in the body. Manual Differential: This method is used to identify the WBC, RBC and platelet count in the body. HYPOTHESIS Determining the Blood typing, Hematology of the blood and levels

  • The Blood Type Of Four Unknown Synthetic Blood Samples

    1566 Words  | 7 Pages

    determine the blood type of four unknown synthetic blood samples through the use of three antibody serums; anti-A, anti-B and anti-Rh. By successfully determining the blood type of an individual, information such as the individual 's blood antigens and antibodies will be known and can help determine which blood types that individual can accept or donate. Blood, or whole blood, consists of about 55% plasma and 45% formed elements; which include platelets, white blood cells and red blood cells or erythrocytes

  • Types Of Blood Groups That Humans Have A, B, Ab, And O

    1266 Words  | 6 Pages

    There are four major types of blood groups that humans have: A, B, AB, and O. An individual’s blood type is determined by the type of antigens that are present in your blood cells; antigens are proteins and cause an immune response on the blood cells. The Rh antigen was discovered in 1940 by Karl Landsteiner and Alexander Weiner with the discovery of the cause of severe jaundice and fetal demise. The Rh antigen was named after rhesus monkeys, because they were the first used in the research of this
