What happens to a person who receives the wrong type of blood?

A. All the arteries constrict
B. All the arteries of diabetes
C. The RBCs agglutinate
D. The spleen and lymph nodes deteriorate

Check Answer

The correct answer is C. The RBCs agglutinate.

When a person receives the wrong type of blood, their immune system recognizes the foreign blood cells as “invaders” and produces antibodies to attack them. This causes the red blood cells to clump together or agglutinate, leading to a potentially life-threatening situation. The clumped cells can block blood vessels, leading to reduced blood flow and oxygen supply to the organs. This can cause organ damage or failure and even death in severe cases. Therefore, it is essential to match the blood type of the donor and recipient before any transfusion to avoid any complications.
