Blood 

 


 

  1. Composition of Blood
    1. Red Blood Cells (Erythrocytes)

        Hemoglobin Oxyhemoglobin / Deoxyhemoglobin

        Red blood cell count = # of red blood cells in a cubic millimeter

        Lifespan of reb blood cells = 120 days

    1. White Blood Cells (Leukocytes)
      1. Types of White Blood Cells

        Lifespan days, months, years

        1. Granular Leukocytes (Neutrophils, Eosinophils, Basophils)
        2. Agranular Leukocytes (Monocytes and Lymphocytes)

    1. Platelets (Thrombocytes)

        Thrombocytopenia

        Lifespan = 10 days

    1. Hematopoiesis

        Red bone marrow

        All cells begin with the multipotent stem cell

    1. Plasma

        Liquid

        92% water

        Molecules, including plasma proteins gamma globulin, fibrinogen

 

 

  1. Functions of Blood
    1. Transport

        Exchanges between Blood and Tissue Fluid

    1. Blood Clotting

        Platelet plug

        Prothrombin

        Thrombin

        Fibrin

 

  1. Blood Groups and Typing
    1. ABO System

        Agglutination

        O = universal donor

        AB = universal recipient

                            B.            Rh System

        Rh+ = antigen

        Rh- = no antigen

                            C.            Blood Typing

 

D. Diseases of the Blood

        Hemophilia

        Anemia

        Leukemia

        Sickle Cell Anemia

Red blood cells, sickle cells
