A common condition: D+ is the most common rh finding. It is usually referred to as rh positive. It is not a situation that has any particular advantages or disadvantages other than testing for transfusion is needed. That is standard for all tranfusions.

What is the different between the blood group "a Rh 'd' positive" and "o Rh 'd' positive"?

Group A and O: The different is one has blood group o+ - and the other has blood group a+. Group o has no antigen a and b, but has antibody to a and b. So, group o is a universal donor- and the blood can be given to people with different blood group. Group a has antigen a, and antibody b. So, can receive group a or o blood. Group o only can receive blood group o if needed any blood transfusion.

No, nothing special: A positive, a+, a rh positive, and a rhd positive are four ways of saying the same thing. It is one of the basic blood types, so there is nothing to worry about just because a person is a+ blood type.

Universal donor: The advantage is that you are a universal donor- which means you can donate your blood and the blood can be used and be given to people with different type of blood group. Which means you can do a lot of good karma. The disadvantage is that if you ever need packed red blood cell transfusion-you should only get a type o blood, which unfortunately -is not very common.

This is sound advice. There is a "pop" book series that makes a huge variety of false claims and bogus recommendations for different blood types. Ignore them.
