Blood Type

Your blood type determines who you can donate to, or receive blood from. People with type O negative (O-) are considered universal donors, as they can donate red blood cells to all other blood type recipients. That's why it's always in high demand — it's used in emergency situations when there is no time to test a patient's blood type.
