Does ABO blood type matter in platelet transfusion?

  1. 0 I transfused A type platelet(single donor) to O type recipient this morning.

    Blood bank said it is ok with platelet.

    Can anyone explain it to?

    Thanks.

    One's blood type refers to proteins and/or other antigenic substances found on red blood cells, thus no red blood cell transfusion, no blood typing necessary.
