Blood Transfusion Injuries & Complications

Blood transfusion is a process in which a patient's blood is supplemented or replaced with that of another. This is usually necessary after the patient has experienced significant blood loss due to injury, trauma, or a surgical procedure. The process of a transfusion is usually done with donated blood or synthetic blood created using platelets, and it has the capacity to save a person's life.
