2

Blood Type AB

(Universal recipient)
Antigen on RBC - A and B
Antigen on Plasma - none

based on the presence or absence of A or B antigens.

6

Markers

Antigens that determine which blood type a person is; stimulate production of antibodies.

7

Transfusion

Blood, Plasma, Platelets from donor to recipient.
Careful typing and cross matching to ensure compatibility.
Incompatibility result in serious, possibly fatal, reactions.

8

Agglutinate

Clump together. Antigens of blood clump together when mismatched/incompatible transfusions are done.

9

Universal donor

Type O Blood, does not contain A or B antigens; it may be given to a person with any of the other blood types.

10

Universal recipient

Type AB Blood, no antibodies against other blood types.

11

Rh factors

Other antigens on red blood cells. Further classification of blood tying. Rh-positive (Rh+) or Rh-negative (Rh-)
