Functions of Blood
Transportation- blood transports oxygen from the lungs to the cells of the body, and takes carbon dioxide from the cells to the lungs to be exhaled out (Gas transportation). Regulation- maintains homeostasis by regulating blood pH, adjusting body temperature. Protection- WBC's destroy pathogens, blood can stop excessive bleeding by clotting.
the most abundant in the body; transports oxygen. strange shape Biconcave, do not have a nucleus; which leaves space for oxygen transport. - can change shape without breaking allowing them to squeeze single file through capillaries. - contain hemoglobin which allows them to carry oxygen. Hemoglobin has a protein called globin which house the pigment heme. Heme has iron in its center that binds with 1 oxygen molecule. life span of 120 days.
responsible for blood clotting
the body's defense mechanism, immunity.They circulate in our body looking for infections so that they can take action. WBC's have a nuclei and a full complement of other organelles. Their life span can range from several months or years, but most live only a few days.WBC's can be broken down into two groups :Granulocytes and Agranulocytes Granulocytes- have a grainy feature. Agranulocytes- have a smooth appearance.
are fragments of the cytoplasm; they lack a nucleus and are found circulating in the blood. Platelets play a role in hemostasis.
Type or WBC granulocyte Basophills-
activated in allergic reactions.
Type or WBC granulocyte Esonophills-

Type or WBC granulocyte Neutrophils-
Kill bacteria and foreign particles
Type of WBC agranulocyte Lymphocytes-
function with the immune system. (NK cells)
Type of WBC agranulocyte Monocytes-
function like neutrophils. They break down huge pieces of bacteria so it can kill it.

The 5 Cardinal signs of inflammation:
Pain Redness Swelling Heat Loss of function
The inflammatory response
prevents the spread of harmful agents, disposes of pathogens, and dead tissues and promotes healing.
Steps to the inflammation process
Cells are injured Histamine and kinis are released and they cause the blood vessels to dilate and the capillaries to become leaky. Pain Phagocytes and WBCs come to the scene of the injury via chemotaxis.
a monomer with two antigen-binding sites Comprises 80% of total antibody Only class able to cross the placenta Provides long-term immunity
a pentamer with ten antigen-binding sites It is a great activator of complement, but has a short-lived response. It is the first antibody to appear in an immune response
a dimer with four antigen-binding sites prevalent in body secretions like sweat, tears, saliva, breast milk and gastrointestinal fluids

The inflammatory process begins with the release of chemicals which do all of the following except?
stroke volume (SV) is the volume of blood pumped from one ventricle of the heart with each beat. SV is calculated using measurements of ventricle volumes from an echocardiogram and subtracting the volume of the blood in the ventricle at the end of a beat (called end-systolic volume) from the volume of blood just prior to the beat (called end-diastolic volume).
states that the stroke volume of the heart increases in response to an increase in the volume of blood filling the heart (the end diastolic volume).
increases or decreases in response to changes in heart rate or stroke volume.
When a person stands up:
cardiac output falls because of a fall in central venous pressure, which leads to a decrease in stroke volume.
The tongue is composed of skeletal muscle
it forces the moistened food bolus into position for swallowing and places the bolus into contact with the teeth for chewing.
There are 20 deciduous or "baby teeth" which begin to erupt around 6 months of age. There are 32 permanent teeth
Saliva starts the process of chemical digestion of food. Saliva is 99.5% water, with tiny amounts of dissolved ions, IgA, lysozyme (a bacteriolytic enzyme), and salivary amylase (a digestive enzyme that acts on starch).q

The inflammatory process begins with the release of chemicals which do all of the following
Glucose is the body's preferred source for making ATP. The oxidation(OIL) of glucose to form ATP... Glucose (C6H12O6) + O2 CO2 + H2O + ATP ... is known as "Cellular Respiration" and occurs in 4 steps
4 steps of cellular respiration
Glycolysis is occurring in the cytoplasm The Krebs cycle takes place in the mitochondrial matrix The cytochrome proteins of the electron transport chain are embedded into the inner the inner mitochondrial membrane
A 63 yr old hospitalized woman becomes oliguirc and confused her blood glucose if found to be only 35 mg. an intravenous access is obtained and an ampute of 50% dextrose is give followed by a continous infusion of 10% detrose. Most of the glucose that is filtered through the glomerulus undergoes reabsorption in which of the following ?
The permeability of the distal tubule and the cellecting duct is controlled by
Can be stimulated or innibited by higher centers in the brain, is stimulated by increased pressure in the bladder, can be stimulated by irritation of the bladder or urethra
The micturiation reflex
The location of the kidneys in relationship to the peritoneal lining of the abdominal cavity is referred to as
All of the following belong to the urinary sytem except the
Which endocrine gland is primarily concerned with sodium and potassium ion balance in the body
What is the outermost portion of the kidney
How many sphincters are found in the urethra
The tube that carries urine from the urinary fladder to the outside world is the _____and the tuve that carries urine from the kidney to the urinary bladder is the ________
What causes vessel constriction to reaise bloode pressure
The JGA produces _____which is needed which blood pressure is __________.
When MAP falls the sympathetic nervous system signals the kidneys to be stimulated. The afferent arterioles are stretched less and the juxtaglomerular cells release the enzyme renin. Once renin is released from the kidney it acts on angiotensinogen which is produced by the liver. Renin converts angiotensinogen to angiotensin I.
causes blood vessels to constrict, and drives blood pressure up.
In order to activate this mechanism,
Angiotensin I must pick up angiotensin-converting enzyme( ACE) to convert it to fully functional Angiotensin II.
Angiotensin II functions:
Vasoconstriction decreases GFR. It increases blood volume by increasing reabsorption of water and electrolytes in the PCT. It stimulates the adrenal cortex to release aldosteron
