Abstract

Objective: This study was aimed to identify the distribution patterns of ABO and Rh-D blood group among the population of capital city of Bangladesh in order to promote social awareness and safe blood transfusion among the population. Method: It was an observational cross sectional study conducted in the Department of Physiology, Dhaka Medical College, Bangladesh from July 2008 to June 2009. After proper ethical consideration a total of 784 people of Dhaka city were included in this study. They were selected irrespective of age and sex by systematic random sampling. ABO and Rh-D blood groups were determined by the antigen antibody agglutination test of slide method. Results: Sixty percent respondents were above the age group 20 years old and 56% respondents were female. Majority (39.8%) were identified as having blood group B while 27.6% were blood group O 23.5% and 9.2% were blood group A and AB respectively. Rh-D positive were 97.4% and Rh-D negative were 2.6%. Conclusion: Most common blood group among the population of Dhaka city was B and Rh-D positive. Study of blood grouping is not only generating a simple database but also create a great social awareness about self-blood grouping and safe blood transfusion among the population of a country.
