Blood transfusion

Blood transfusion is the process of transferring blood or blood-based products from one person into the circulatory system of another.

Blood transfusions may treat medical conditions, such as massive blood loss due to trauma, surgery, shock and where the red cell producing mechanism (or some other normal and essential component) fails (see blood diseases).
