Blood Typing

Video on Blood Types

Blood Reading - Reading on Blood and Lymph p. 94-96 Blood Types

Blood Types are determined by one factor:
The antigens found on the red blood cell (A, B, and Rh).  These antigens determine the type (A, B, AB, or if not present at all O) and whether it is positive or negative (Rh factor).

Whether you can receive or donate blood safely brings in a third factor of the antibodies found in the plasma.  

If antigens and antibodies of the same type come into contact clotting can occur.
