self administer a blood transfusion?
Jul 27, 2008

Should someone or even can someone self administer a blood transfusion? Thank you, Paul

Response from Dr. Frascino


No! Someone definitely cannot and should not self-administer a blood transfusion, with the possible exception of Dracula and other bona fide blood-sucking vampires. To attempt to do so would be extremely dangerous.
