Oswald's blood type?


Recommended Posts

Michael,

Does anybody know from Oswald's Marine records, what his blood type was?

Steve, if memory serves me I believe Oswald's military records indicated Type A.

This could get interesting.

You're right.

In CE 19H beginning on page 581, there is an Exhibit called the Donabedian Exhibit. It's a chronological history of Oswald's medical history while with the U.S. Marines.

On page 593, it gives Oswald's blood type as "A".

In volume 21 of the WC Hearings, there is the Price Exhibits, which are statements from the Parkland Memorial personnel.

On page 215 of volume 21, there is a statement from Bertha Lozano, R.N.

Describing the events of Sunday, November 24th and the treatment of Lee Harvey Oswald at Parkland, she wrote, "I helped, handing syringes to draw the blood, tubes for the blood, holding the patient's left hand along with Dr. J. Garvey, going to the Blood Bank with Dr. McGraw to register the blood, and obtain more O-negative blood."

Now, she doesn't specifically say that the O-negative blood was for Oswald, but who else would she be getting it for?

Is it possible that the Oswald in the Marines had type "A" blood, and the Oswald who died on a Parkland Hospital operating room had type "O-negative"?

I understand that if someone needs a transfusion -- and this was an emergency -- the medics can substitute O blood for other blood types. FWIW.

Steve, maybe not a false alarm. The nurse could have been told to get O-negative. The same people worked on Kennedy and Oswald. Possibly a complete Coup de Grace?

Terry

Well, we may have to strike that after all. If Katlheen is correct (and I am sure that she is) about using blood type O, then I suppose it was, in fact, a false alarm.

Dr. CARRICO - At the beginning of the resuscitation attempt intravenous infusions had been started using polyethylene catheters venesection, lactated renger solution, and uncross-matched type O Rh negative bloods were administered

From WebMD:

"Type O-negative blood does not have any antigens. It is called the "universal donor" type because it is compatible with any blood type.

The "Universal Doner" aspects of administration of "O" RH-negative blood was long ago discussed under the treatment of JFK in the ER/Trauma room at Parkland.
