Caption: Issuing blood bag. Nurses checking blood bag paperwork. Donor blood is separated into its component parts to maximize the efficient use of the blood and remove white blood cells, which are not usually required. The required parts are mixed to produce blood for use in hospitals. The labels identify the blood group and other details. Careful records are kept in case of infection. It is essential to use blood of the correct group, as mixing blood of different groups can cause potentially fatal complications. Blood is used to treat various blood disorders and to treat blood loss during surgery or after an accident. Photographed in the UK.
