Can a blood transfusion be given in home?
Do you give blood inside the home or is that something that just occurs at a facility?
Blood transfusions have to be given in a facility that contains a blood bank. There are several reasons for this. When we give blood, a person is first tested for their blood type, to make sure the proper type is given. Then, we start the blood infusion slowly, as the person can have a reaction to the blood. They need to be monitored closely, to make sure a tranfusion reaction doesn't occur. Since such intense monitoring and testing is needed, a blood transfusion cannot be given safely in someone's home.
