Could you describe to me the process of getting a blood transfusion?

In brief: Blood needs

If you need to supplement your blood supply or the components of the blood stream, a transfusion can be arranged.
Your doctor will have measured your blood type and other factors in the blood which can be reacted against so the new transfusion matches yours and cannot cause a problem. It is administered through an IV tubing like any fluid.
