Blood Transfusions


What will happen if a person with AB-negative blood receives a blood transfusion from someone with O-positive blood?

I. Nothing; AB blood is the “universal recipient” and can receive any blood type without eliciting an immune response.
II. Nothing; O-positive blood is the “universal donor”, meaning that any blood type can receive it without eliciting an immune response.
III. The recipient will experience an immune response against the Rh antigen.
IV. The recipient will experience an immune response against the O antigen.
