If you have a condition which affects your blood, or if you have been involved in an accident and lost a significant amount of blood, you may need to undergo a blood transfusion. If something goes wrong you may need help to claim non fault compensation in Greater Manchester.
Often, a transfusion can replace lost blood or replace damaged cells with healthy blood so they can be very beneficial. In fact, without transfusions, many people would lose their lives so they are an integral part of modern medicine.
Of course, before a transfusion is given, consent must be obtained from the patient or their next of kin. As some people oppose blood transfusions on religious grounds, it’s essential that medical professionals do obtain consent before performing this kind of treatment.
In addition to this, the blood must be treated before it is used for a transfusion to ensure that it is safe. If, for example, a blood donor was unaware that they had a medical condition and their blood was then used in a transfusion, it could potentially cause the receiver to contract the same illness. By testing and treating the blood prior to a transfusion, medical personnel can ensure that it won’t cause harm to whoever is receiving it.
