Terms in this set (23)
Any of the tiny air sacs of the lungs where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged
Tube-like passage for gas exchange that lies between epiglottis and bronchi
proteins found in blood plasma that are shaped to react with and disable antigens (lock and key)
on the membrane of red blood cells, substances that stimulate an immune response in the body. (lock & key)
Big artery that sends oxygen rich blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body
Each of the two upper chambers of the heart that receives blood that comes into the heart.
Force of blood against the blood vessel
A thin-walled, microscopic blood vessel where the oxygen/carbon dioxide and nutrient/waste exchange with the body's cells takes place.
An iron-containing protein in red blood cells that reversibly binds oxygen
A yellow fluid that carries the blood cells and nutrients and transports cellular waste material to the organs of excretion.
Small cell fragments that aid in blood clotting at the site of an injury
The surge of blood through an artery
red blood cell
round blood cells containing hemoglobin that carry oxygen through the bloodstream, they have no nucleus
A large blood vessel that carries blood back to the heart
Either of two large veins that return oxygen-depleted blood to the right atrium of the heart
Bottom portions of the heart, thicker walled and larger that send blood away from the heart
white blood cells
Disease fighting cells in blood. They are larger than RBCs and have a nucleus. They are also fewer in number than RBCs
Filters waste from the blood like urea, water, salt and proteins and thus maintain homeostasis.
Functional unit of the kidney, consisting of the Bowman's capsule, a glomerulus, and a U-shaped collecting tubule
tube that leads from the kidney to the bladder that transports body wastes for removal from the body
carries urine from the bladder out of the body
Smooth muscle sac; temporarily stores urine.
A fluid produced by the kidneys that contains waste molecules, water and ions
