- RBC abnormalites: Anemia (3)
- White Blood Cells: Diapedesis
- White blood cells functions
- Antigens (agglutinogens)
- 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.
- b Protect body against microorganisms and remove dead cells and debris, infection. Can level the blood vessels. work like an ameoba.
- 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.
- d too many platelets (too much clotting)
- 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. 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
- 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
- 1. too many RBCs
2. most common in chronic lung disease
3. blood gets thicker
4. high altitude more pressure
- 1. Rh-positive
a. Rh antigen on RBC
b. No antibody in serum
a. No Rh antigen on RBC
b. No antibody in serum
3. Anti-Rh antibodies are not normally present in blood
- 1. Stimulated by colony stimulating factor
2. ones that die signal to make new ones
3. interleukin = cause WBC formation
5 True/False questions
ABO Blood Groups: Type AB → Type AB
Both antigen A and antigen B on RBC
No antibody in serum
Erythropoiesis → Stationary clot
Leukopenia → 1. 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
5. Secrete lysozyme.
6. Last 1-2 days.
7. Account for 60-70% of the WBC.
Hemostasis → 1. 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
Differential WBC count → Blood differential
Lists percentages of types of leukocytes
