Presentation Transcript

Slide2 l.jpg
12.1

  • Blood is a type of connective tissue whose cells are suspended in a liquid material.


Slide3 l.jpg
12.2

  • Whole blood is:

  • Slightly heavier than water

  • 3 to 4 times more viscous (resistance to flow)

    Blood cells form mainly in the red bone marrow.

    Blood also contains cells (RBC and WBC) and cell fragments (platelets) called formed elements.

  • A blood sample is usually about 45% cells (red and white) this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • A blood sample is about 55% liquid called plasma (yellow in color).

  • Plasma (nonliving) is a complex mixture of water (92%), amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, hormones, electrolytes, and cellular wastes.


In one drop of blood l.jpg
In one drop of blood this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • RBC 5 million, live for 120 days, main job is to carry oxygen.

  • WBC 8,000, live for 10 days, main job is to fight infections.

  • Platelets 250,000, 5 days, main job is to aid in forming clots.


Red blood cells l.jpg
Red Blood Cells this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • RBC or erythrocytes are biconcavedisks, shaped like donuts with no hole.

  • Hemoglobin

  • is the protein that causes blood to be red.

  • carries oxygen on the RBC.

  • Anemia is having too few RBC or too little hemoglobin. A person with anemia feels tired, is short of breath, and looks pale.

Sickle cell l.jpg
Sickle Cell this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disease in which all the RBC are shaped like sickles.

  • Sickle cell is more common among African-Americas.

  • People with sickle cell have serious health problems.

  • Sickle cells do not carry enough oxygen and can get stuck in blood capillaries.


Destruction of rbc l.jpg
Destruction of RBC this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • Marcrophages destroy damaged RBC, primarily in the liver and spleen.


White blood cells l.jpg
White Blood Cells this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • WBC or leukocytes protect against disease.

  • There are 5 types of WBC. They are classified according to size, the nature of their cytoplasm, nuclei shape, and how they stain.


2 main groups of wbc l.jpg
2 Main Groups of WBC this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • Granulocytes are leukocytes with granular cytoplasm. They live only about 12 hours.

  • Agranulocytes are leukocytes without cytoplasmic granules.


5 types of wbc l.jpg
5 types of WBC this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • Neutrophils is the most numerous WBC.

  • Eosinophils are WBC that increase in certain parasitic infections and allergic reactions.

  • Basophils release heparin and histamine.

  • Monocytes are the largest blood cells. They are 2 or 3 times larger than RBC.

  • Lymphocytes can live for many years. They form antibodies necessary for immunity to specific diseases.


Slide14 l.jpg


Wbc diseases l.jpg
WBC diseases this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • Leukemia is a form of cancer characterized by uncontrolled production of WBC.

  • AIDS or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, is a disease of the immune system. The AIDS virus reproduces in only one kind of WBC.


Platelets l.jpg
Platelets this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • Platelets or thrombocytes are not complete cells.

  • Platelets lack a nucleus.

  • Platelets help close breaks in damage blood vessels and initiate formation of blood clots.


12 3 blood plasma l.jpg
12.3 Blood Plasma this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • Plasma is the clear, straw colored, liquid portion of the blood.

  • Plasma is 92% water.

  • Functions included transporting nutrients, gases, and vitamins. Help regulate fluid and electrolyte balance and maintaining body pH.


Plasma proteins l.jpg
Plasma Proteins this is called the hematocrit (HCT).

  • Plasma proteins are the most abundant of the dissolved substances in plasma.

  • 3 Types of Plasma Proteins

  • Albumins

  • Globulins

  • Fibrinogen


Slide19 l.jpg


Gases and nutrients l.jpg
Gases and Nutrients for 60% of these proteins by weight. Made in the liver.

  • Blood Gases are oxygen and carbon dioxide.

  • Plasma nutrients include amino acids, simple sugars, nucleotides, and lipids absorbed from the digestive tract. Most nutrients found in the plasma were primarily absorbed from the small intestines.


Slide21 l.jpg


Cholesterol l.jpg
Cholesterol Lipids are not soluble in water.

  • (LDL) Low-Density lipoproteins (bad)

  • (HDL) High-Density lipoproteins (good)


Slide23 l.jpg


12 4 hemostasis l.jpg
12.4 Hemostasis and uric acid.

  • Is the stoppage of bleeding.

  • Vasospasm when severed vessel close completely only last up to 30 minutes.

  • Serotonin release which causes smooth muscles to contract that reduces blood loss.

  • Platelets adhere to any rough surface and form blood clots. Clots begin to form when platelets come in contact with a rough surface.


Blood coagulation l.jpg
Blood Coagulation and uric acid.

  • Coagulation the most effective hemostatic mechanism, causes formation of blood clots.

  • Fibrin insoluble threads.

  • Prothrombin produced by the liver. In the presence of Calcium ions converts intothrombin which then forms fibrin threads.


Platelet disease l.jpg
Platelet disease and uric acid.

  • Hemophilia- genetic disease in which blood is missing the clotting factor. Blood transfusions prior to 1985 have caused 95% of the hemophiliacs to develop AIDS.

  • Von Willebrand- genetic disease in which a plasma protein in missing causes people to bruise and bleed easily.
