1. Lately, SM has been plagued with petty quibbling and near personal attacks in several threads. Whether it is the change of seasons, high humidity, or the phase of the moon is undetermined, nor relevant. We REQUIRE civilized discussions, and REQUIRE members to avoid personal insults and attacks. This applies to all, no one is immune; not newbs, not long time members, and not staff. See the CoC item 1, found here - https://www.survivalmonkey.com/threads/survivalmonkey-com-site-rules.4757/ or at the bottom right of the page you happen to be on. We can, and do, use some judgement in taking measures to dissuade and steer things away from petty nit picking over differences of opinion. Flogging those differences to death qualifies as flaming as well as “personal attacks” and has to be handled in exactly the same way. Not only that, but such silliness and uncivil activity usually results in thread deviation well beyond the bounds of reason. Staff has other things to do than be police, and rather does not like taking enforcement actions against any member (with the exception of spammers. We live to hit the ban button on 'em.) But enforcement will be done as necessary. We are going to take the slack out of the leeway rope. If this offends your sensibilities, well, we really don’t care; it has to do with site health, not yours, not mine, but ours.

    +++ Please read this entire page! Update at bottom: There seems to be some debate pertaining the differences in package whole blood from a hostpital vs. human to human transfusions. +++

    Please consult with a medical professional before following any of this advice. We are merely passing the below as information that has been found or sent to us over the years.

    Blood is grouped into four types: A, B, AB, and O. Each type is also classified by an RH factor – either positive ( + ) or negative ( - ). When a blood transfusion is necessary, donor and patient blood must be compatible. If not, the patient’s body will react to the incompatible donor cells, leading to complications, maybe even death.

    Your ABO blood grouping and Rh factor are inherited from your parents. Check the chart below to see what percentage of the population shares your ABO grouping.

    Possible Blood Transfusion Combinations

    This from a reader

    I have to clarify your blood compatibility chart. Your data is correct is you are referring to packed red blood cell transfusions (typical in-hospital type). But is you are talking about person to person whole blood transfusions your chart is completely incorrect. As a hospital laboratory tech for 10 years I know what I am talking about. If you want correct information then I will be happy to supply that. But if you do not want to believe me (as on Survivalblog.com) then I do hope that your readers do not attempt a person to person blood transfusion based on your recommendations.

    Here is the chart that was sent to me:

    Take a screen grab . . . put it in a document . . . print it, copy it, memorize it . . . there are many different ways to get this information into hardcopy.

    Here are 3rd you can try.... I converted Cato's see if it works for you...These charts are based on red cell transfusions NOT WHOLE BLOOD DONOR TO DONOR.

    AB negative here. I donate blood because of it. Have needed blood before and my type is not easy to come across so I give when I can. Wow I did not know that AB neg was only 1% of the population, knew it was rare but not that rare.
