the kidney

the process of lymphopoiesis goes on in all of the following organs, except


the most abundant proteins is blood plasma are

presence of specific glycoproteins on the cell membrane

a person's blood type is determined largely by the


a typical adult hematocrit is around

5 to 6 liters

The total volume of blood in the body of an adult male is approximately

heme molecules lacking iron

The waste product bilirubin is produced from

four iron atoms

each hemoglobin molecule contains

all the above

Bill wants to determine his blood type, so he takes a few drops of blood from a puncture wound in his finger and mixes it with various antisera. His blood cells agglutinate when mixed with the antiA but not with the antiB or anti D this means

less abundant than lymphocytes

which of the following is not true of neutrophils

her hemoglobin is normal

Mary is tested for the amount of hemoglobin in her blood. the test results indicate that her hemoglobin level is 16 the value indicates.


during a bacterial infection you would expect to see increased numbers of


are large phagocytic white cells that spend most of their time outside the blood as fixed and free phagocytic cells.


platelets are pinched off from giant multinucleated cells in the bone marrow called

injections of vitamin B12

pernicious anemia caused by a lack of intrinsic factor is specifically treated by

increased erthropoiesis

an obstruction in blood flow to the kidneys would ultimately result in

during periods of fasting

the level of erythropoietin in the blood would rise due to all the following except


involves a cascde of reations leading to the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin

red bone marrow

in adults, the only site of red blood cell production and the primary site of white blood cell formation is the

a gene for adult hemoglobin is abnormal

the disease sickle cell anemia is an example of what can happen if

all the above

when a person who lives at sea level vacations in the Rocky Mountains, you would expect

R atrium to tricuspid valve
to R ventricle to pulmonary semilunar valve to pulmonary trunk then pulmonary arteries to lungs to capillary beds to exchange gases to pulmonary veins to L atrium to mitral valve to L ventricle to aortic semilunar valve to aorta to capillary beds of all body tissue then back to R atrium via Inferior or Superior Venae Cava.

begin blood pump with R atrium

ventricles are in diastole

Which events below does not occur when the semilunar valves are open.

visceral layer of the serous pericardium

This membrane covers the heart

to prevent cells from separating gap junctions for ion passage

intercalated discs of cardiac muscle

reinforcement and anchors heart

skeletal tissue of heart

closure of the heart valves

normal heart sounds are caused by what event

both aorta and pulmonary trunk

which vessels receive blood during ventricular systole

isovolumetric relaxtion

the second heart sound is heard during which phase of the cardiac cycle

coronary sinus

the enlarged coronary vessel outside the heart that empties blood into the R atrium is the

pulmonary and aortic semilunar valves

valves that have no chordae tendineae attached

coronary arteries

the source of blood carried into capillaries in the myocardium would be the

commotio cordis

Contusion of the heart, often caused by a blow to the chest and cause heart failure and sudden death, because the heart is re-polarizing


contraction of atrial heart muscle


relaxation of ventricle heart muscle

pump blood with great pressure

the left ventricle is thicker because it has to

foramen ovale

structure in the fetal heart that allows blood to flow from the r atrium directly to left atrium

papillary muscles

small muscle masses attached to the chordae tendineae are

when the ventricle is in systole

the tricuspid valve is closed

has gap junctions that allow it to act as a functional synctium

compared to skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle

left atrium

blood within the pulmonary veins returns to the

second intercostal space to the right of the sternum

to auscultate the aortic semilunar valve you would place your stethoscope in the
