The MosT Common

Quick Facts

  • Because 39% of the population have type O+ blood, hospitals transfuse it more often than other blood types.
  • Preferred donation methods: double red blood cell, whole blood, and platelet.
  • Types O, A, B and AB positive can receive O+ red cells, (except childbearing aged females of types O-, A-, B- and AB).
  • Type O+ can ONLY receive types O+ and O-, and only type O+ and O- can receive O+ plasma.

Blood Types Needed

Many variables can impact our blood inventories such as weather, holidays or tragic events.  Every day, patients who need blood are in crisis and you can help by volunteering to donate.  Less than 10% of the population gives blood, so donors that give on a regular basis are important to meet these needs. Schedule an appointment today!
