Universal recipients have type AB, Rh-positive blood (AB+). Their bodies recognize A, B, and Rh antigens as their own, allowing them to receive red blood cells of any ABO or Rh type
When blood cells are transfused that aren’t compatible with the recipient’s blood type, the immune system recognizes them as foreign invaders and responds by attacking and destroying them (incompatibility). For example, if a person with type A blood received a type B or AB blood transfusion, an ABO incompatibility response would occur. Rh incompatibility can occur when a pregnant woman has Rh-negative blood, and her baby has Rh-positive blood. In addition, a person who is Rh-positive can receive blood from someone who is Rh-negative, but those with a negative blood type cannot receive blood from those with a positive blood type.
