Additionally, blood groups can be distinguished based on the presence or absence of an RH antigen.
Your ABO and RH blood type is crucial medical information especially for medical procedures that involve blood transfusion and organ transplants. Infusing an incompatible blood type can cause fatal consequences.
An appropriate blood type test allows you to know your own blood type without going through unnecessary complications. It will also save you a significant amount of time when you undergo a medical procedure.
