universal recipient traditional name for a person thought to be able to receive blood of any “type” (see blood group) without agglutination of the donor cells. This refers to individuals of blood group AB; however, research and clinical experience have now demonstrated that antibodies may be present to cause serious reactions. Therefore, prior to a blood transfusion, any recipient must be checked for compatibility (see crossmatching).
