Can you tell me anything about blood transfusion?

In brief: Plenty

To be able to accomplish a blood transfusion there has to be a blood donor that gives blood to a blood bank, then it is processed and tested before it can be transfused to a compatible recipient.
It is a prescribed product and its major indication is the need to increase oxygen carrying capacity in an anemic patient with symptoms of low oxygen. Also platelets or plasma are other products available
