5 Matching questions

  1. RBC abnormalites: Anemia (3)
  2. White Blood Cells: Diapedesis
  3. White blood cells functions
  4. Antigens (agglutinogens)
  5. Thrombocytosis
  1. a 1. cells become thin, elongate and move either between or through endothelial cells of capillaries
    2. migrate out of blood vessels and into tissue spaces.
  2. b Protect body against microorganisms and remove dead cells and debris, infection. Can level the blood vessels. work like an ameoba.
  3. c lack of hemoglobin, lack of RBC, can't carry as much oxygen
    1. Iron Deficiency - most common, not enough Hemoglobin due to lack of iron. Iron effects function of making hemoglobin
    2. Pernicious - lack of Vit. B12, not enough RBCs
    Sickle Cell - destruction of RBCs, cells get trapped in blood vessels & they are broken down, then don't have enough RBCs.
  4. d too many platelets (too much clotting)
  5. e 1. Molecule that stimulates cells to produce antibodies
    2. on the cell - determine what blood type you are
    Note: antigens is what on test, not agglutinogens

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 1. RBC life span - 105 to 120 days
    2. Damaged RBCs removed by spleen & liver
    3. Broken down into heme & globin
    4. Globin - amino acids
    5. Heme - (iron mostly)
    a. Biliverdin (green) by product, breaks down bilirubin
    b. Bilirubin (yellow) by product of iron
    Bruise - break down hemoglobin
    spleen - remove any damaged RBCs, WBCs & platelets
  2. 1. Migrate to lymphatic tissues & proliferate.
    2. Responsible for antibody production.
    3. Immunity - specific
    4. Account for 20-25% of the WBC.
    5. 2nd most common
    T & B lymphocytes
  3. 1. too many RBCs
    2. most common in chronic lung disease
    3. blood gets thicker
    4. high altitude more pressure
  4. 1. Rh-positive
    a. Rh antigen on RBC
    b. No antibody in serum
    2. Rh-negative
    a. No Rh antigen on RBC
    b. No antibody in serum
    3. Anti-Rh antibodies are not normally present in blood
  5. 1. Stimulated by colony stimulating factor
    2. ones that die signal to make new ones
    3. interleukin = cause WBC formation

5 True/False questions

  1. ABO Blood Groups: Type ABType AB
    Both antigen A and antigen B on RBC
    No antibody in serum


  2. ErythropoiesisStationary clot


  3. Leukopenia1. die quickly, release chemicals to kill bacteria but you kill them too. they die to protect you.
    2. AKA: polymorphonuclear leukocytes or PMNs
    3. Highly mobile and very active PHAGOCYTIC cells
    4. Diapedesis
    5. Secrete lysozyme.
    6. Last 1-2 days.
    7. Account for 60-70% of the WBC.


  4. Hemostasis1. Arrest of bleeding
    2. Events preventing excessive blood loss
    a. Vascular spasm: Vasoconstriction of damaged blood vessels.
    b. Platelet plug formation
    c. Coagulation or blood clotting


  5. Differential WBC countBlood differential
    Lists percentages of types of leukocytes
