    During Dialysis, can different blood types be given? If someone is A Pos, can B Neg and O Pos be given? Whether transfusion or plasma? Desperate need to know--family member was in crisis and liver failed, nurse friend said look at dialysis records for possible clue. Same day different blood transfused or whatever the term used, family member went into crisis and went into liver failure, with dr saying it was her condition that did it. But patient recovered and liver count went to normal--they gave albumin, too, and some other IVs. Please help with answers, thank you!

    This is not my area of expertise. Please speak with your family member's doctor.

    I agree --the family member's doctor needs to be consulted. Our Kidney Disorders Community can help as well.
