    The Blood is being transfusioned.

    "Tom is transfusioning blood so that it can be given to a person who needs it."

    "The Blood is being transfusioned in the Tim's body because he has lost a lot of blood in an accident."

    Please check.

    Re: The Blood is being transfusioned.

    "Tom is giving blood."
    "Blood is being transfused into Tom because he lost a lot in the accident."
    or "The blood ...", but not "The Blood..."
    (You can assume that it's his body, not his mind or soul, that is receiving the transfusion.)

    Re: The Blood is being transfusioned.

    Did you check in a dictionary to see if "transfusion" can be used as a verb?

    Re: The Blood is being transfusioned.

    Tim is having a blood transfusion sounds more natural to me.

    Sorry, no I am confused about this thing and I didn't know that there were two forms of this word.

    Re: The Blood is being transfusioned.

    Transfusion = noun
    Transfuse = verb
