Known blood donor? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Shahid Athar   

Q. My friend is in the hospital. He is to have a major operation and will require blood. Is blood transfusion allowed and should we select the donor?

A. Yes. Blood transfusion is allowed. Blood is routinely screened for HIV and other diseases. It would be nice if you could find a relative of your friend to match and donate his or her blood.
