    Default Know Your Blood Type

    Medical topic not mentioned that much - chiefly because our DIY mentality tends to bypass anything beyond our particular reach >> but SHTF blood typing won't be eazy and even possible in some cases - but blood transfusions just might be within reach - knowing your way around the topic could be essential ....

    You need to know blood types for you, your family, and all the other members of your group. You also need to know what types of blood you can receive and to whom you can donate.

    A+ can receive A+, A-, O+,O- can donate to A+, AB+
    A- can receive A-, O- can donate to A+, A-, AB+, AB-

    B+ can receive B+, B-, O+, O- can donate to B+, AB+
    B- can receive B-, O- can donate to B+, B-, AB+, AB-

    AB+can receive everything--universal acceptor can donate only to AB+
    AB- can receive A-, B-, AB-, O- can donate to AB+, AB-

    O+ can receive O+, O- can donate to A+, B+, AB+, O+
    O- can receive only O- can donate to everyone--universal donor

    Because O- people can donate to anyone, they are called universal donors, or in more colorful language, walking blood banks. If you have one of these people in your group, and only one set of body armor, this person gets it.

    You can order a blood typing kit on Amazon.

    The japanese believe that blood type dictates personality.

    I recall reading an article years ago about folks having their blood type tattooed on their arm. This was during the Cold War in industrial areas which were natural targets and where manpower for recovery would be essential. The wife and I are opposites, my A to her B, both pos. No mix-and-match here.
