Is the Blood Type O+ good?
14 Nov 07
Almost 40% of the population has O+ blood. Patients with Type O blood must receive Type O blood. About half of all blood ordered by hospitals in our area is Type O. Type O blood is the universal blood type and is the only blood type that can be transfused to patients with other blood types. Only about 7% of all people have Type O negative blood. Type O negative blood is the preferred type for accident victims and babies needing exchange transfusions. There is always a need for Type O donors because their blood may be transfused to a person of any blood type in an emergency. So O+ Blood group is not only a Good and also a Great Blood group.
